How to Make Dixie Fried Chicken
- Season chicken with salt and pepper. Combine flour and red pepper; set aside. Combine egg and milk; dip chicken in egg mixture and dredge in flour mixture, coating chicken well.
- Pour oil to a depth of 1 inch in a 10 inch to 12 inch skillet; (I only fry chicken in cast iron) heat oil to 350 degrees. Fry chicken in hot oil over medium heat 15 to 20 minutes or until golden, turning occasionally. Remove small pieces earlier, if necessary, to prevent overbrowning.
- Drain chicken on paper towels. Serves 4
