Daddy's Fried Chicken
1/3 C. water
2 C. self-rising flour
1 t. pepper
chicken pieces (Katherine likes legs the best.)
vegetable oil for frying
Beat eggs with water. Stir pepper into flour.
Dip chicken pieces into the egg, coat well in the flour mixture. Fry in hot oil (350 degrees) until brown and crisp. (Dark meat takes about 15 minutes, white meat takes about 10.)
Freezes well - reheat at 400 until hot and crispy.
Reuse the oil - it tastes better the second time.
