Instructions

  1. Cut chicken into 10 pieces (2 legs, 2 thighs, 2 wings and each breast cut in half). Season generously with salt and black pepper.
  2. Place a deep cast iron or other large frying pan over medium heat. Pour in enough oil so it reaches 1-inch up the side of the pan. Heat oil to 350°F or until a piece of bread browns immediately when dropped in the oil.
  3. While oil is heating, place flour in a shallow dish and season generously with salt and pepper; stir to combine. Heat oven to 250°F.
  4. Once oil is hot, coat a few pieces of chicken in flour, shaking off the excess and carefully place in hot oil. Fry 3 to 4 pieces at a time until crispy, brown, and juices run clear, about 15 to 20 minutes.  Place on a paper-towel lined baking sheet and place in warm oven.  Continue with remaining chicken.
