Southern Fried Chicken


  • 3 lb. broiler-fryer chicken, cut up
  • 1/2 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1/2 tsp. paprika
  • 1/4 tsp. pepper
  • salad oil


Wash chicken and pat dry. Mix flour, salt, paprika and pepper. Heat oil (1/4 inch) in large skillet. Coat chicken with flour mixture. Cook chicken in oil over medium heat 15-20 minutes. Reduce heat. Cover tightly and simmer 30-40 minutes or until thickest pieces are tender. If skillet cannot be tightly covered, add 1-2 Tbsp. water. Turn chicken to assure even cooking. Remove cover for last 5 minutes to crisp chicken.


For Creamy Gravy: Place chicken on warm platter. Pour fat from pan into bowl, leaving brown particles in pan. Return 3 Tbsp. fat to pan. Blend in 3 Tbsp. whole wheat flour. Cook over low heat, stirring until mixture is smooth and bubbly. Remove from heat. Stir in 3/4 cup cream and 3/4 cup water. Heat to boiling, stirring constantly. Boil and stir 1 minute. Add a few drops soy sauce. Season with salt and pepper.
