1 whole fryer chicken, cut into pieces
2 cups all-purpose flour
3 eggs, beaten
1 tablespoon salt
1 teaspoon pepper
3 to 4 cups cooking oil for frying
Put 1 cup flour in a gallon Ziploc and put the chicken pieces in. Shake well making sure all chicken pieces get dredged in flour.
Put the remaining 1 cup of flour in a bowl and add the salt and pepper. Mix well.
Heat the frying pan or skillet to 350 degrees F. With a tong, get one piece of chicken from the Ziploc and soak in a bowl with the eggs beaten and then dredge with the other remaining 1 cup of flour in a bowl with the salt and pepper.
Fry in a pan until golden brown or about 15 to 20 minutes. Repeat the process without overcrowding the frying pan.
* Use Catsup as a dip or make a brown sauce with the oil in the pan and adding 1/2 cup water and 1 tablespoon flour. Season with salt and pepper and add 1 tablespoon butter.
Serves 4 to 6
