Southern Fried Chicken Recipe Ingredients -
- 1 fryer chicken (2 ½ lbs - 3 lbs)
- ⅓ cup Crisco
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1 ¾ cups flour
- ¼ teaspoon black pepper
Cut the chicken into pieces.
Mix the flour, salt and pepper in a bag, then add the chicken, a few pieces at a time, shaking it well to coat evenly.
Add the Crisco to a skillet and bring it to 360 degrees F over a medium high heat.
Fry the chicken pieces for about 35 minutes without covering the skillet.
Turn them several times during cooking so they brown evenly.
