Lea's Fried Chicken

Leanne D.


This is how I fry chicken.My husband requests some today. I can't give specific amounts as I don't measure,but season the chicken and the flour well.If you have time,season the chicken overnight. I prefer to fry chicken in a cast iron skillet or use a heavy skillet. Another recommendation I have is,don't drain the chicken on paper towels,makes it soft,drain over a rack.
