DIRECTIONS

  • Rinse the chicken pieces and dry thoroughly with the paper towels.
  • Pour milk (Undiluted) into a large pie plate. Dip chicken into milk.
  • In a clean brown paper bag, combine flour, cornflake crumbs, salt, pepper and paprika, if using. Then shake chicken, a few pieces at a time, in crumb mixture in the bag, coating well.
  • Pour peanut oil, or whichever oil you prefer. (I use peanut oil because it has a greater smoking point than other oils).into pan at about 1/2-inch deep, may need more.
  • Heat the oil slowly.
  • Brown the chicken lightly, turning with tongs.
  • Cover; reduce heat; cook 40 to 45 minutes, turning occasionally to ensure even browning.
  • Remove cover; cook 5 minutes longer to crisp the crust.
