Frying up some chicken is a real tasty treat

Fried Chicken

Every now and then I make this fried chicken and I realize I should make it more frequently. It is much better than a certain kind of chicken that comes in a barrel or a box – but it does remind me of that kind of chicken. Back in the day, that was a real treat.

This chicken is not deep fried: it is pan fried in a generous amount of oil. Allow the chicken pieces to drip on paper towels to remove some of the oil and ease your conscience. The cooking is finished in the oven and that makes the skin crispy and finger-licking good!
