Sookie Stackhouse’s Fried Chicken Recipe

What a Fried Chicken Recipe, courtesy of “True Blood: Eats, Drinks, and Bites from Bon Temps”

(by Sookie Stackhouse)

1 1/2 cups of all-purpose flour

2 teaspoons salt

1 teaspoon sweet paprika

1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

1 teaspoon cayenne pepper

Lard or vegetable oil… for deep frying

Two 3-3 1/2 pound broiler-fryer chickens cut into serving pieces

Combine the flour, salt, paprika, black pepper, and cayenne in a large plastic or paper bag. Shake to mix.

Heat about 2 inches of lard until it registers 360 degrees F on a deep-fry thermometer in a large, heavy pot. Put four chicken pieces in the bag, and shake well. Add the chicken to the hot fat and deep-fry until golden brown and cooked through, 12 to 15 minutes.

Drain the chicken on paper towels.

Repeat the process with the remaining chicken.

Serve hot or warm.
