This recipe makes the very best fried chicken I have ever had. My husband made it for me just today!

Company Fried Chicken

4 cups all purpose flour (divided)
2 Tbsp garlic salt
1 tbsp paprika
3 tsp pepper (divided)
2 1/2 tsp poultry seasoning
2 eggs
1 1/2 cup water
1 tsp salt
2 whole chickens, cut up (or 15-20 thighs or legs)

In a large bowl or disposable bag, combine 2 2/3 cups flour, garlic salt, paprika, 1 1/2 tsp of the pepper, and the poultry seasoning.

In another bowl, combine beaten eggs with water and then whisk in remaining flour, salt and pepper.

Preheat oil in large cast iron frying pan to 375. We keep a thermometer in the oil and carefully keep it at the right temperature. That's very important in making a crisp, but not burnt crust.

Dip chicken in in egg mixture, then into the spiced flour.
Fry chicken pieces in hot oil for 10 minutes on each side. Internal temperature should be 180. Drain well and serve.
