DIRECTIONS

  • Wash and dry chicken pieces; shake in a bag with flour, salt, pepper and poultry seasoning.
  • Dip coated pieces in cream in pie plate; then dip in remaining flour mixture again to coat evenly.
  • Pour enough oil into a large skillet to make a depth of 1".
  • Heat over moderate heat to 375 degrees on deep-fat frying thermometer (if you have one).
  • If not, just test heat by sprinkling a drop of water into grease, if it pops, it's ready enough.
  • (Stand back, so you don't get splattered).
  • Add chicken, skin side down.
  • When underside of chicken starts to brown, lower heat and partially cover skillet with lid.
  • Turn chicken pieces after 15 minutes.
  • Continue cooking second side, uncovered, until browned and chicken is tender, 10 minutes longer.
  • Drain on paper toweling, keep warm.
  • Serve with Cream Gravy, if you wish.
  • For Cream Gravy: Pour off fat from skillet, leaving brown bits; return 2 tablespoons fat to pan.
  • Stir in 2 tablespoons flour; heat until light brown.
  • Remove from heat; gradually stir in 1 cup light cream.
  • Return to heat; cook, stirring constantly, until thickened and bubbly.
  • If too thick, add more cream.
