Southern Fried Chicken

Many recipes call for an egg dip.  This recipe makes a wonderfully crispy crust that stays crispy without egg or milk. 

1C           Flour

1 Tsp      Nutmeg or Mace

1½ Tsp  Bell’s Seasoning

If you can not find Bell’s seasoning you can use:

½ Tsp                Sage

½ Tsp                Thyme

¼ Tsp                Crushed Rosemary

Pepper and salt to taste

1 Pkg     Chicken 6-8 pieces

Melted shortening or oil for frying


Put all dry ingredients in a paper bag or gallon plastic bag. Shake to mix.  Add the chicken pieces a few at a time and shake to coat the chicken.

Heat the shortening or oil in a deep frying pan (about 1” deep) until very hot, but not smoking.  Place chicken in the pan and turn the heat down to medium.  Fry on one side about 10-12 minutes) depending on thickness of the piece) until well browned.  Turn pieces over and continue frying for another 10-15 minutes.  Total frying time 30-40 minutes.  Juices will run clear when the meat is cooked.
