Southern Fried Chicken


3 eggs
1/3 C. water
2 C. self-rising flour
1 t. pepper
1 to 2-1/2 pound chicken cut into pieces
Seasoned salt
Crisco shortening for frying


Beat eggs with water. To just enough self-rising flour to coat all the chicken, add black pepper. Dip seasoned chicken in egg; coat well in flour mixture.

Fry in moderately hot shortening (350 F.) until brown and crisp. Remember that dark meat requires longer cooking time (about 13 to 14 minutes, compared to 8 to 10 minutes for white meat).
