Total Calories: 283


1 cup all-purpose flour
1 tablespoon salt
1 tablespoon paprika
1 1/2 teaspoons poultry seasoning
3/4 teaspoon pepper
3 (3-pound) frying chicken, cut into serving pieces
1 1/2 cups shortening, cooking oil, or bacon drippings (or a combination)


Combine first 5 ingredients in a paper or plastic Ziploc bag. Place 3 or 4 chicken pieces in bag at a time, close, and shake to coat well with seasoned flour. In a large skillet, melt fat, add chicken pieces, and cook over moderate (350°) heat until browned and crisp on both sides (do not crowd chicken pieces in skillet). Transfer chicken to 2 (9x13-inch) baking pans and cover securely with aluminum foil. Bake in moderate (350°) oven for 40 minutes. Uncover and continue baking 15–20 minutes longer, or until chicken is tender and outside is crisp.
