Ingredients:  
3-1/2 Pounds of Chicken (white, dark, mixed), cut into 8 or 10 pieces
1 Tablespoon Salt
1/2 Teaspoon Pepper
1/4 Teaspoon Garlic Powder- optional
4 Eggs
1/2 Cup Milk
2 Cups Self Rising Flour
Oil, for frying

Directions:
Directions:
Drain the chicken, pat dry with paper towels, and arrange on a large plate or baking sheet; sprinkle generously with salt and pepper on both sides. Cover loosely with plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least one hour.
Set up a dipping station with one medium sized bowl for the egg and milk mixture, a second medium sized bowl for the flour and a large plate or platter to hold the breaded chicken. Whip the egg and milk together. Dip the seasoned chicken into the egg mixture, allowing excess to drip off. Then coat the chicken with flour, gently shake off excess and transfer to a large platter. Set aside.
Fill a 12 inch or larger cast iron skillet about halfway with oil and using a deep fryer thermometer, heat oil over medium high heat until it reaches around 360 degrees. If you don't have a thermometer, the oil is generally ready when a pinch of flour tossed in sizzles. Very carefully slide the pieces of chicken in, one at a time, and skin side down, slowly laying it into the hot oil. You'll only want to fry about 4 or 5 pieces of chicken at a time.
Cook on the first side about 8 minutes, trying to keep the oil at about 300 degrees F by regulating the temperature up or down; turn and cook another 6 minutes or until golden brown and juices run clear when pierced with a fork. Adjust time as needed depending on cuts used and their size. Drain on a paper bag or a rack over paper towels. Serve immediately.
