6 cups Crisco cooking oil
1 egg beaten
2 cups milk
2 cups all-purpose flour
4 tablespoons of salt
2 teaspoons black pepper
3 tablespoons spice mixture (recipe follows)
2 frying chickens with skin, each cut into 8 pieces
Pour the oil into pressure cooker and heat over medium heat to about 400º.
In a small bowl combine the egg and milk.
In a separate bowl, combine the remaining dry ingredients.
Dip chicken pieces in the egg and milk mixture. Roll the moistened
chicken in the flour mixture until completely coated.
In groups of 4 or 5 pieces, drop the coated chicken pieces into the
oil and lock the lid in place.
When steam begins shooting through the pressure release, set the timer
for 10 minutes.
After 10 minutes, release the pressure according to the manufacturer’s
instructions and remove the chicken to paper towels or metal rack to
drain. Repeat with remaining chicken.
note: you may not have a pressure cooker, but this recipe is good
frying in the standard way. just adjust your timing until chicken is
done. but, if you have a pressure cooker, please use it….it’s great!
this spice mixture can be made and kept in a tightly sealed jar and
used to flavor soup, sprinkle on roasting chicken, for stuffing, etc.
the choice is yours.
