    How to Fry Chicken
    1 frying chicken cutup, excess fat and skin removed
    Toss in a bag of flour and shake them up.
    Heat 1/2 inch of oil till hot. - Test with a drop of water
    Place chicken in - skin side down
    Let fry uncovered for 15 minutes, then turn with 2 forks
    Let brown on other side 15 minutes
    Turn heat to low and cover with a lid and cook for another half hour.
    Remove from pan and drain on paper towels

    Tip: If you prefer a heavier crust, then shake the chicken in flour, then dip in a bowl with a beaten egg and a little milk. Dip the floured pieces in the egg to coat then put back in the flour and shake up again. So it's actually twice coated. You can add seasonings to the flour if you want. Any excess flour left in the bag you can roll the bag up and put it in the freezer till the next time you cook fried chicken.

    Bisquick Oven Fried Chicken
    1 tablespoon margarine or butter
    2/3 cup Bisquick
    1 1/2 tsp. paprika
    1 1/4 tsp. salt
    1/4 tsp. pepper
    2 1/2 to 3 1/2 lb chicken, cut up

    Heat oven to 425. Melt margarine in rectangular pan 13x9x2. Mix paprika, salt and pepper, coat chicken. Place chicken skin side down in pan. Bake uncovered 35 min. Turn bake until done about 15 min. Makes 6 servings. Higher altitude bake 40 min, turn and bake 20 min.

    Garlic Crumb Chicken
    This Garlic Crumb Chicken is one of my baked chicken recipes that is worth the extra preparation time because it is so good. As I said, it's oven baked, and you remove the chicken skin because you don't need the extra calories. Originally I found it in an old magazine. They called it a dieter's delight.

    1 chicken cut up and skinned
    1 cup crushed corn flakes
    1 tablespoon parsley leaves
    1/2 teaspoon basil
    1 1/2 teaspoon salt
    1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
    1/4 teaspoon pepper
    1/4 cup of milk in a bowl

    Put the dry ingredients in a bowl and stir well.
    Dip the pieces of chicken in the milk and then in the seasoned cereal coating all sides well. Place in a baking pan and bake 30 minutes at 350 degrees
    Carefully turn them over and bake for 30 minutes more or until tender.

    My Note: The trick to these being so tasty is the basil. I have tried this recipe without the basil, (because I couldn't find it) and it didn't taste the same. I even used bread crumbs one time and it probably would have been just as good if I would have had the basil.

    This recipe is a good way to use up a box of stale corn flakes as well. Put the cornflakes in a baggie and roll it with a rolling pin or heavy glass. Freeze any leftover crumbs for the next time you make this chicken recipe.
