2" of 50/50 mixture of Crisco and Butter
Salted/peppered flour
Brown paper bag

Directions:
Directions:
Soak chicken parts with skin on (best part) in buttermilk overnight in the frig.
In a big cast iron skillet (or electric fry pan) melt about 2" of a 50/50 mixture of Crisco shortening and butter over medium high heat, until a drop of water jumps all over it.
When you're ready to cook, take one piece of chicken out of the buttermilk at a time and roll it in flour, then put it in the skillet til the skillet is about 1/2 full. If you fill it up, you'll cool down the grease too much and get greasy chicken.
Fry that chicken till all sides are golden brown, and then put the chicken in an uncovered roaster pan in a 200 degree oven til supper time.

Serve with my True Southern Gravy
