3 lbs cut up chicken
1 cup flour
pepper to taste
2 tbsp paprika
2 cups Crisco or corn oil
Soak cut up chicken in salted water (1 tbsp of salt per quart of water)
for 1 hour. Pat dry.
In a bag, mix flour, salt, pepper to taste, and paprika. Shake chicken pieces (2 at a time) in flour mixture, covering well.
Place Crisco or corn oil in large skillet.
Heat to medium - medium high temperature, add thickly sliced onion rings and chicken, until tender, crisp & brown, approximately 20 minutes. (Turn after 10 minutes.)
Test one with fork to check if done.
Drain on paper towels and serve.
I like chicken hot and crispy, but I also love it cold!
