Fried Chicken

Ingredients 12 pieces of chicken, washed and patted dry

1 to 2 cups all purpose flour

1 cup milk

3 tablespoons salt

1 tablespoon pepper

1 /2 tablespoon paprika

2 cups corn oil (more if needed)


Mom loves to put the chicken in a large dish cover it with the milk add half the salt, pepper and paprika then put it in the refrigerator for at least an hour (but she will tell you over night is way better) Combine remaining dry ingredients in a large bag, add chicken piece or 2 at the time shake it up to coat well.

Now you are ready to fry! Heat oil in large cast iron skillet to about 370 fry until chicken is golden brown. (Keep oil just below smoke point)
