Pan-Fried Chicken with Gravy
Ingredients
1 1/2
teaspoons poultry seasoning or paprika; dried basil or marjoram, crushed; or 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder or onion powder
1/2
teaspoon salt
1/4
teaspoon black pepper
4
pounds meaty chicken pieces (breast halves, thighs, and drumsticks)
 
Cooking oil
1
Gravy
1
Mashed Potatoes (optional)
Directions
  1. In a plastic bag combine flour, poultry seasoning, salt, and pepper. Add chicken pieces, a few at a time, shaking to coat.
  2. Add oil to a large heavy skillet to a depth of 1/4 to 1/2 inch. Heat over medium-high heat until until hot enough to sizzle a drop of water. Reduce heat. Add chicken to the skillet. (Do not crowd skillet. If necessary, use 2 skillets.) Cook, uncovered, over medium heat for 15 minutes, turning to brown evenly. Reduce heat; cover tightly. Cook for 15 minutes. Uncover and cook for 5 to 10 minutes more or until chicken is no longer pink (170 degrees F for breasts; 180 degreesF for thighs and drumsticks). Drain on paper towels, reserving drippings for gravy. Transfer chicken to a serving platter; keep warm. Prepare Gravy. If desired, serve with Mashed Potatoes. Makes 6 servings.
