CindyD’s Somewhat Southern Fried Chicken
Chicken thighs and drumsticks are coated in seasoned flour before frying. The golden brown chicken is quick, simple, and inexpensive to prepare.
In a small bowl, thoroughly beat the eggs.
In a bowl, sift together the flour, sage, salt, black pepper, onion powder, and garlic powder.
In a sizable deep skillet, heat the vegetable oil over medium-high heat.
Ideally, the oil will be 2 inches deep.
Chicken pieces should be thoroughly coated after being dipped in the beaten egg and then the seasoned flour.
Fry the chicken in the hot oil for about 10 minutes, turning it over after that and continuing to fry it for another 20 minutes or so until it is golden brown and the meat is no longer pink.
The thickest portion of a chicken thigh should register 160 degrees Fahrenheit on an instant-read meat thermometer (70 degrees C)
