Merlotte’s Fried Chicken

What You’ll Need:

  • 1 and 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp pepper
  • 1 tsp cayenne pepper
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • 6 cups vegetable oil for frying
  • 2 chickens (3-4 lbs) cut into pieces for frying

Ready, Set, Fry:

1. Combine the dry ingredients into a large ziplock bag and shake to mix.

2. In a large 12 inch skillet, heat oil to 360* F. You will need a deep frying or candy thermometer to check the temp.

3. Coat the chicken in the dry ingredients by shaking them in the bag.

4. Add chicken to the hot oil and fry until golden brown and cooked through. This takes between 12-15 minutes, be sure to move the pieces around gently so they fry evenly.

5. Place the chicken on paper towels to remove the oil. Serve hot.
