Okie Fried Chicken

1 frying chicken, disjointed (or your favorite pieces)
about 3/4 Cup flour
1 tsp. season salt
1/2 tsp. salt
3/4 tsp. pepper
1/2 tsp. garlic powder
2 tsp. paprika

Combine flour and all seasonings in a baggie, set aside. Rinse chicken well and set on paper towels.

Heat oil in electric skillet to 375 deg.

When good and hot, shake chicken pieces, 1 at a time in the flour mixture and place carefully in hot oil. When golden brown, turn with tongs (not a fork-cause juices escape).

Total cooking time is 1 hour-- just watch it carefully and turn every once in awhile.

When chicken is done, remove all but 3 Tbsps. of fat from pan. (Put chicken on platter & set in low oven).

To drippings in pan, add 2 Tbsps. butter and some flour, 1/2 Cup flour and stir around until it is good and sizzling, but don't let it burn. Now slowly stir in about 3 Cups of milk, or part milk and some cream. Salt and pepper to taste and sprinkle in 2 tsps. of chicken bouillion granules-- it really adds to the gravy.
