Southern Fried Chicken

Southern Fried Chicken

3 eggs

1/3 C. water

2 C. self-rising flour

1 t. pepper

1 to 2-1/2 pound chicken, cut into pieces

seasoned salt

Crisco shortening for frying

Beat eggs with water. To just enough self-rising flour to coat all the chicken, add black pepper. Dip seasoned chicken in egg; coat well in flour mixture.

Fry in moderately hot shortening (350° F.) until brown and crisp. Remember that dark meat requires longer cooking time (about 13 to 14 minutes, compared to 8 to 10 minutes for white meat).
