How to make it

  • Cut the chicken into serving pieces: breasts into halves, the legs and thighs separated, plus the wing, for a total of eight pieces.
  • Heat shortening in a heavy-duty skillet to 360 degrees F.
  • Clean chicken pieces thoroughly.
  • Season the chicken with the salt, paprika and black pepper.
  • Place flour into heavy plastic bag, put the chicken pieces into the bag and shake vigorously until chicken is well-coated.
  • Dust off excess flour.
  • Place chicken pieces into skillet pan that has been preheated to 360 degrees F.
  • Do not overcrowd pan.
  • Fry the chicken until golden brown and the juices run clear when pierced with a fork.
  • Approximate cooking time is 25 minutes.
  • Place chicken on paper towel to drain off excess oil once removed from the pan.
  • Immediately dip chicken into hot honey, then place on a platter.
  • My Tip: : when I make fried chicken I often soak the chicken in buttermilk or an herbed salt brine to tenderize the chicken before I dip it into egg batter, flour, egg batter and flour again and let it set a bit. I like to make a real crispy batter this way.
