But for the brave of hearts, here is Just Plain Cooking and
Fried Chicken (Memaw's)
1 2 1/2 to 3 pound chicken (cut into pieces)
1 cup flour
2 cups shortening
Salt and pepper
Put flour and salt and pepper in a large paper or plastic bag. Drop chicken pieces into the bag and shake to coat evenly with flour.
Heat shortening in a deep frying pan until hot. Drop chicken pieces into the hot fat and fry until golden brown and chicken is cooked to the bone. Turn often to keep from burning. Drain on paper towel.
(It gets smothered tomorrow.)
