Chicken cut up
Flour, salt & pepper
Crisco

Directions:
Directions:
Marinate chicken in salt brine overnite. 1/2 c. salt approx. to water. [This seals in the juices.] Drain chicken well but leave wet, and dredge in flour, salt and pepper combined. Put in fry pan in 1/2" bubbling hot crisco. Cover chicken and turn frequently until brown.

Southern Chicken Gravy:
Pour off most of the grease after frying the chicken, leaving the chicken bits in the bottom of the skillet. Add 2 T. of flour and brown slightly. Gradually add enough milk for the consistancy you want. Let it simmer slowly for 5-10 minutes. Salt and pepper to taste. Of course you have to have mashed potatoes made from scratch for this dinner!

Personal Notes:
Family Memories from Sylvia: One Halloween, Dorthy and I were in a group that flipped over out-houses one night. This was quite common on this night. The owner came running out of his farm house with his gun, jumped into his pick-up and roared down the road after us. We scattered and hid in the corn field! We stayed and stayed in the corn a long time before we cautiously ventured out!
