Greasy, juicy, and crunchy—we know these as the all-time favorite fried chicken. Sure, it’s a simple food, but even the simplest things can be one of the best. Just follow this recipe, and you’ll soon find your kitchen graced with the presence of the oh-so-delicious Southern fried chicken.


Makes 5-6 servings

1 whole Chicken, cut into 8 pieces
2 Large eggs
½ cup Whole milk
1 ½ cups all-purpose flour
1 Tbsp Seasoned salt*
1 tsp Ground black pepper
24 oz Crisco solid vegetable shortening

  1. Pat the chicken pieces dry and line a baking sheet with wax paper.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk the eggs with the milk. Add the chicken.
  3. In another bowl, whisk the flour with the seasoned salt and pepper (use up to 2 Tbsps if using the Homemade Seasoned Salt). Roll the chicken in the seasoned flour (make sure the chicken is thoroughly coated with the flour mixture) and transfer to the baking sheet.
  4. In a 12-inch cast-iron skillet, heat vegetable shortening to 365° F. Add pieces of the coated chicken and fry over moderate heat. When chicken pieces are golden on one side, turn pieces over, turning chicken pieces occasionally, for 35 to 40 minutes or until juices run clear.


¼ cup Fine salt
1 Tbsp Sugar
2 tsps Paprika powder
2 tsps Onion powder
1 tsp Garlic powder
½ tsp Garlic salt
½ tsp Pepper

Measure all ingredients into a clean, dry bowl and mix thoroughly with a spoon. Transfer to a clean, airtight jar with a screw cap.
