while oil is heating up, mix together eggs and milk in a medium bowl. start soaking chicken pieces, and set aside.(can soak chicken one whole day before use)

Gravy, If your oil isn't burnt, you can use your left over oil, 1/2 c to 1 c. of oil,if your oil is no good, rinse out pan, and add butter, melt(once butter is melted, add bullion cubes so they dissolve and you can see that they are dissolved then add flour and whisk heavily til smooth. Gradually whisk in cold stock. Reduce heat to low. Bring gravy to a simmer, and cook and stir until thick enough to coat the back of a spoon, 10 to 15 minutes.
