Perfect Fried Chicken Recipe

1 broiler-fryer, cut into serving pieces
1/2 cup flour
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper

Rinse chicken pieces with cool water; set aside.

In plastic or paper bag, mix flour with salt and pepper. Drop 2 to 3 pieces of chicken at a time into bag with flour mixture; shake to coat well.

Meanwhile, heat lard in skillet over medium heat and 2 inches deep, or until drop of water sizzles when added (340°F if using electric skillet). Place chicken, skin-side down, in pan. Cook and turn pieces to brown evenly on all sides. Reduce heat to medium-low and cook, covered, until juices run clear and meat is tender, about 30 minutes, or until fork can be inserted into chicken with ease. Drain on paper towels. Yields 6 servings.
