1 chicken, cut up
1 1/2 cups flour
Salt and Pepper, to taste
1/4 cup butter or margarine
1/2 cup vegetable oil
Salt and pepper the chicken. Dredge in flour, coating well.
After the chicken is coated with flour, set it aside for 10 minutes. This will make your chicken crispier by helping the coating stay on the chicken when fried.
In a large skillet, add butter and oil. Heat over low heat, until oil is hot.
Add chicken. Cover with lid. Cook on low 30 minutes, turning chicken after 15 minutes. Don't fuss with the chicken. Turning it frequently, and picking up the edge to check it, will make the coating fall off.
Remove lid, turn heat up to medium high, brown on all sides.
I usually bake my chicken, but every once in a while I crave my Grandma's fried chicken. As it cooks, the aromas filling my kitchen make me feel almost like my Grandma is with me. I miss her so much!
When I was a child, we would have big family gatherings once a month. My grandma would smile and laugh, as she prepared food for the people she loved the most. Of course, fried chicken was on the menu. It is amazing how certain food and smells bring back so many happy memories.
What food, brings back happy memories for you?
