Canadian.kitchen's picture
Ingredients
  Fat 1⁄4 Cup (4 tbs)
  Flour 1⁄2 Cup (8 tbs)
  Paprika 2 Teaspoon
  Salt 1 1⁄2 Teaspoon
  Pepper 1⁄4 Teaspoon
  Chicken pieces 4 Pound (legs, wings, breasts and so forth)
Directions

Mix flour with seasonings, and put in paper bag.
Add chicken pieces, a few at a time, and shake to coat.
Save remaining flour for gravy.
Heat fat in heavy frying pan—enough for at least 1/4-inch depth.
Fat is at right temperature when a drop of water sizzles in it.
Put in thickest chicken pieces first, turning frequently until evenly and lightly browned; continue till all pieces are nicely browned—15—20 minutes.
Cover pan tightly, and cook until meat is tender—20—25 minutes longer.
For crispy coating, uncover pan for last 10 minutes, and turn pieces once.
Note: Other seasonings may be used as desired: thyme, oregano, garlic powder, rosemary, ginger or curry powder.
