Chicken in the basket

fried chicken in a basket


Chickens, all-purpose flour, salt, paprika, pepper, cooking oil and water (all to party size and taste)


Set out a Dutch oven or a large, heavy skillet with cover. Put oil (at least 1/2 in. depth) and set to medium heat.

Cut chickens into serving size pieces. Rinse and pat dry with absorbent paper.

Mix flour, salt, paprika, and pepper together. Put other seasonings if you like. Coat the mixture on the chicken.

When the skillet is ready, place the chicken (skin side down) carefully in the oil. Turn pieces as necessary. When chicken is evenly brown reduce heat and add a little water (few tablespoon).

Cover skillet. Cook for 25-40 minutes. Check if it's wellcooked by piercing with fork. Uncover the last 10 minutes.

Now serve in baskets lined with paper or cloth napkins.
