  • 1 1/2 Cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 Teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 Teaspoon gravy base
  • 1 Teaspoon paprika
  • 3/4 Teaspoons poultry seasoning
  • 1/4 Teaspoon chili powder
  • 2 chickens, cut into serving pieces
  • 2 Teaspoons seasoning salt
  • 1/2 Cup vegetable oil
  • 1/4 Cup butter


In large plastic or brown bag, combine flour and next 5 ingredients.

Sprinkle chicken on all sides with seasoning salt and shake chicken pieces in the seasoned flour and lay on waxed paper while oil is heating.

In 12-inch skillet, heat oil and butter over medium-high heat until hot. Carefully add chicken, skin side down; cook until golden brown, about 10 minutes per side. Drain on paper towels. (Keep warm, if desired.) Repeat with remaining chicken. Serve hot or at room temperature.
