3 c. of sifted flour
1 tbsp. curry powder
2 tsp. garlic salt
2 tsp. salt
1 tsp. ground black pepper
1 tsp. onion powder
1 tsp. paprika
1 tsp. dried oregano put in coffee grinder
1 tsp. tarragon - put in coffee grinder
1 tsp. dried parsley - put in coffee grinder
tsp. dried rosemary - put in coffee grinder
tsp. dried thyme - put in coffee grinder
1 cut-up chicken

Take 3 cups of sifted flour and put into a medium-sized bowl. Add curry powder, garlic salt, salt, pepper, onion powder and paprika to the flour. Then take the last spices and put them into a coffee grinder (clean it first) to grind them into a powder. Add those powdered spices to the flour. Mix well so that the spices will be evenly distributed.

Then, put one egg and a little water (2 tablespoons) into a small bowl. Mix well. Dip the chicken pieces into the egg/water mixture and then into the flour mixture to coat well. Put vegetable oil (about inch) into a large frying pan. Bring the oil to a good, frying temperature and add the chicken in. Cover the pan and fry the chicken on one side for 15 minutes. Turn the chicken and fry uncovered for 10 more minutes. The chicken should be golden brown.

NOTE: Garlic powder plus added salt may be used instead of garlic salt.
