DIRECTIONS

  • Combine flour and seasoning in a paper (or plastic bag} and and do the herk and jerk thing to coat. You can add 1/2 cup of dry bread crumbs to the mix for texture and crunch if you wish. In a large skillet, (I use a cast iron one) melt enough lard (Yes lard, don't use anything else. T'ain't right) to cover the bottom of your skillet 1/4 inch deep. It's hot enough when a drop of water sizzles well.
  • Now then, Don't crowd the chicken. Leave a minimum of 1/4" in space between all pieces. 1/2 inch" or more is better but hey, ya only got so much room in there, right?.
  • Put in the breasts first, and lightly brown on all sides then add the rest and brown those on each side, cover tightly. and cook for till tender, about 20-30 minutes.
  • Uncover for the last 10 minutes.
