Things You'll Need
- 1 1/2 Cups Flour
- 7-8 pieces of chicken
- yellow mustard
- Sage (optional)
Prepare the chicken as normal. The first for crispy fried chicken is to prepare your chicken as normal, by sprinkling each piece with salt, pepper, and sage, if desired.
Meanwhile, preheat the skillet to medium heat, allowing the grease to slowly heat up, but not too hot.
Use the mustard bottle and a basting brush or bbq brush, that you can use to baste the chicken with.
Dip the brush into the mustard and baste a thin coat onto front and back of each piece. For those of you that don't like mustard: The mustard taste is not present when the chicken is fully cooked.
Pour 1 1/2 cups of flour into a gallon size Ziploc bag. If you need more, you can always go back and add some. One by one, place each piece of prepared chicken into the bag and shake until coated with flour.
Add the chicken to the frying pan and cook. On the correct setting, a typical frying pan of chicken takes about 30 minutes. If it's cooked to fast, the middle will still be red.
