Dorothy's Real Southern Fried Chicken
Country Fried Chicken
1 chicken (3 to 4 lb.) cut up
3 tsp. salt, divided
vegetable oil
1/4 cup butter or margarine
1 cup all purpose flour
1/2 tsp. black pepper


Sprinkle chicken with 2 teaspoons of salt. Place on a platter and cover and refrigerate overnight or at least 4 hours

Pour about 1 inch of the oil into a large, heavy, deep skillet. Add butter and heat over medium-high heat to 375 degrees F.

Rinse chicken under cold water. Place flour, remaining teaspoon of salt and black pepper in a bowl. Coat the chicken pieces and shake off excess.

Add chicken to skillet in a single layer so the pieces do not touch. If necessary, cook in batches.(Keep cooked pieces warm in 200 degree oven)

Cook until evenly golden brown on both sides - turning once after about 15 minutes.

Drain well on paper towels. Serve hot. Enjoy!
