Easy Southern Fried Chicken


3 lbs cut up chicken
1 cup flour
pepper to taste
2 tbsp paprika
2 cups Crisco or corn oil
Onion rings


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!
