Instructions Checklist
  • 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.

Oven directions:

Coat chicken pieces as above. Brown chicken in a large ovenproof skillet. (Or, brown chicken in a regular skillet; transfer to a 15x10x1-inch baking pan, arranging bone side down.) Bake, uncovered, in a 375 degree F oven for 35 to 40 minutes or until chicken is no longer pink. Do not turn.
