step-by-step directions
step-by-step directions
  • Rub chicken with salt and pepper.  In a paper bag or re-sealable bag, mix flour and spices.  In small batches, place chicken in flour mixture and shake until coated.  Repeat until all the chicken has been floured.  
  • Fill the cast iron skillet up two inches and heat oil to 365°F.  The oil is ready when a little bit is flour is dropped in, and the flour bubbles.  Carefully place chicken in hot oil.  Do not crowd pan. Cover and cook the chicken until it's brown on one side, then turn over to brown on the other side with the pan covered.  
  • Drain on a rack or paper towels.  Spinkle with salt.  Carla likes to eat these with rosemary honey.
