Melissa's Fried Chicken Recipe
Bear in mind that I "eye-ball" the ingredients so there are no definite amounts of anything.
1 cut up fryer chicken, rinsed and patted dry.
Cooking oil......enough to fill a large frying pan 1/2 inch
All Purpose Four......app. 1 cup
Old Bay Seasoning....app. 3 tablespoons
Salt/ Pepper to taste.
Combine flour, old bay, salt and pepper in a large zip.lock bag, close bag and shake until ingredients are mixed. Drop in chicken pieces, seal bag and shake until pieces are evenly coated.
Heat oil in frying pan over high heat until a drop of water sizzles.Take chicken pieces and place them in the pan, skin side down. COVER, reduce heat to Med./High and cook for 15 minutes. Discard lid, turn chicken over and cook for 15 more minutes. (if chicken is not browning enough increase heat to High for last 15 minutes)
When chicken is done, drain on paper towels. Serve immediately or keep warm in 190 degree oven.
