Wash and dry chicken after cutting up. In iron skillet over medium heat, melt shortening until there is about one inch of melted shortening in pan. Combine flour, cornmeal and salt, pepper. Dip chicken pieces in butter milk or milk, roll in flour combination until coated well. Put in hot shortening. Turn heat down to medium low. Turn, and keep turning chicken. Cook uncovered until chicken is tender.

Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
Mom used to fry chicken with shortening instead of oil and make the best chicken ever. (She says you can use oil in the recipe but it is not as good) Nancy and I used to hover around, "helping" and waiting to snatch the crispy coverings that were left in the pan (which we called cracklings, then). I got more burned fingers and tongue than ever but they were worth it.
