Fried Chichen Recipe

How to make the Best Fried Chicken.

That’s the title my husband wanted to give this post. Ahhh…Fried Chicken, my husband’s favorite. I think he could eat it every day! It’s a classic. I can’t say it’s healthy, but it is delicious.

Ingredients for Fried Chicken:

3-4 pound chicken, cut in pieces for frying

1 cup unbleached all-purpose flour

Salt and pepper to taste

Other seasonings (if desired): I have used poultry seasonings, my Homemade Seasoned Salt or Old Bay Seasoning in the past

1 cup of coconut oil, canola oil, shortening, or lard (your preference)

Instructions for Fried Chicken:

Wash chicken and blot dry with paper towels.

Put flour, salt, pepper, and other desired seasonings in a gallon-size plastic storage bag or large mixing bowl, combine.

Heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat (425 degrees).

Roll each piece of chicken in the flour/seasoning mixture until completely coated.

Place chicken in skillet, skin side down.

Tilt lid and let fry for about 15 minutes.

Fried ChickenTurn and let fry 10 minutes (or until internal temperatures reach 165 degrees F and juices run clear).

Enjoy! Let me know if your family liked this Fried Chicken recipe!

Now, I’m all grown up, have 6 children of my own, and plan to teach them everything I know.

Here on Mama’s Homestead, we talk and write about homesteading, homeschooling, and kidsteading (homesteading with kids). We teach our kids about survival, self-sufficiency, gardening (vegetable, herb, flower), orchard, beekeeping, home keeping, soap making, harvesting, cooking, food preservation, livestock, nature, crafts, homesteading tools and wares, and more…
