KFC Has Nothing On Me

I find myself buying things at the grocery store b/c they are on sale and then deciding later what I'll do w/ them. This past week I bought chicken drumsticks. I knew I wanted a chicken meal w/ mashed potatoes and asparagus, but didn't know what kind of chicken. This morning I woke up w/ an uncontrollable urge for fried chicken. Now yes, I know how to fry chicken, but I still "Googled" it for ideas. I found a method I liked, added some stuff to it and came up w/ a pretty good recipe. It was delicious! So, try it and let me know what you think!

Old Fashioned Fried Chicken
Chicken pieces
4 eggs
1/2 cup milk
3 cups flour
Seasoning to taste (I salt and peppered the chicken itself. Then I added a good amount of Lawry's seasoning salt to the flour)
Vegetable or Canola oil

Mix eggs w/ milk. Add seasonings to flour. Dip chicken in egg and then flour. Repeat. This will give you a double dipped extra crispy batter. Heat 3/4 inch oil in electric skillet to 350º. If using a stove top skillet, use medium heat. Fry chicken on all sides for 6-8 minutes each, or until internal temp reaches 165º. It should be golden-brown and crispy. Drain on paper towels.
