    This is one of my husbands favorite items. He loves fried chicken and is all excited when I make it. I always accompany it with mashed potatoes and gravy and he will eat it leftover with no complaints.. When making the mashed potatoes, I use the potato water to enrich my gravy.


    • 3-4 lb chicken cut into pieces
    • 2 Tbs granulated garlic
    • 3 tsp pepper
    • 3 Tbs dried oregano
    • 1 tsp salt
    • 3 Cups of flour
    • 2 eggs
    • 1 cup milk
    • Crisco Vegetable shortening


    1. Dry chicken completely
    2. Mix garlic, pepper, salt, oregano and flour in a bowl and pour into a zip lock bag
    3. Beat eggs with milk and place in shallow bowl
    4. Dip chicken pieces in egg mixture then a piece at a time into the zip lock and shake until covered with flour, repeat till all pieces are covered and set aside.
    5. Heat shortening to 375 in a cast iron pan, put a few pieces of chicken in pan and fry lightly, 3 minutes, place on rack to drain and then to a sheet pan..
    6. Place in a 400 oven and bake for 35 minutes. Chicken will be moist and crisp, serve with mashed potatoes and gravy..
