"As viscous as motor oil swirled in a swamp, redolent of burnt bell peppers nested in by incontinent mice and a finish reminiscent of the dregs of a stale can of Coca-Cola that someone has been using as an ashtray. Not a bad drink, though."--Excerpt from "The Moose Turd Wine Tasting" by T. A. Nonymous

Directions:
Cut up chicken, then wash and drain chicken.
Mix together 2 cups flour, salt, pepper and garlic powder in a bowl.
Fill the bottom of a frying pan or skillet with 1" of bacon grease. If you don't have enough bacon grease to cover the bottom of the frying pan, then add shortening to the bacon grease to make up the 1" of grease in the frying pan.
Dredge chicken in flour mixture, and knock off excess flour.
Bring bacon grease to medium hot temperature.
Place dredged chicken in hot grease, cover skillet with lid for 10 minutes. Cook at medium hot heat, so grease does not start to burn.
Remove lid and turn chicken over. Leave cover off the chicken for remainder of cooking time. Cook chicken uncovered for another 5 to 10 minutes.

Personal Notes:
The secret to good fried chicken is bacon grease! Things fried in bacon grease are the spice of life.
If you don't know how to cut up a chicken, then you can buy it already cut up at the grocery store. But you still need to wash it.
