  Broiler fryer chicken 2
  Egg 1
  Cold water 1 Cup (16 tbs)
  All purpose flour 1 1⁄4 Cup (20 tbs), sifted
  Salt 1 Teaspoon
  Ground ginger 1⁄2 Teaspoon
  Ground cloves 1⁄2 Teaspoon
  Oil/Shortening 2 Cup (32 tbs) (For deep frying)
  Salt To Taste
  Pepper To Taste

Cut chickens into serving size pieces.
Sprinkle with salt and pepper.
Refrigerate while preparing batter.
Beat egg until foamy in a medium size bowl.
Stir in cold water.
Sift flour, salt, ginger and cloves into same bowl and beat until smooth.
Chill at least 1 hour.
Add enough oil or shortening to a large heavy skillet to make a 2 inch depth when heated.
Heat to 360° on a deep fat thermometer, or until a cube of bread turns golden in 15 seconds.
Dip chilled chicken pieces into batter with tongs.
Hold over bowl several seconds to allow excess batter to run off.
Fry chicken, a few pieces at a time, turning often, until rich golden brown.
Transfer browned chicken to a shallow baking pan. (Do not stack in pan, keep in one layer.)
Bake in slow oven (325°) 15 minutes, or until chicken is tender when pierced with a fork.
Serve with duck sauce or spicy preserves, if you wish.
