Slap THAT on your thighs!

My dad didn't cook a lot when we were growing up, but now that Mom is in school, he has been helping more. He is so good at it! Last night, we picnic-ed inside with fried chicken. It's the best I've had. But Dad gives all the credit to Loretta Lynn! So, without further ado.... buh duh duh duh!.... from Loretta Lynn's You're Cookin' It Country....


CRISPY FRIED CHICKEN
1 (2 1/2 to 3-pound) Chicken, cut-up

Seasoned Flour
1 1/2 cups flour
1 tablespoon garlic salt
1 1/2 teaspoons pepper
1 1/2 teaspoons paprika
1/4 teaspoon poultry seasoning

Crispy Batter
2/3 cup flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon pepper
1 egg yolk, beaten
3/4 cup water
Shortening (Crisco) for frying

Rinse the chicken and pat dry.
For the seasoned flour, combine the flour, garlic salt, pepper, paprika, and poultry seasoning in a small bowl. Set the mixture aside.
For the crispy batter, combine the four, salt, pepper, egg yolk, and water in a medium bowl.
Fill a skillet about halfway up with shortening and heat over medium-high heat to 365-degrees. Dip the chicken in the seasoned flour, then into the crispy batter, and again into the seasoned flour. Fry the chicken in the shortening for 15 to 18 minutes or until crisp and well browned. Drain on paper towels.

Stick that in your skillet and fry it! :)
