Classic comfort food. Make our juicy fried chicken in less than an hour.

Ingredients

1/2
cup Gold Medal™ all-purpose flour
1
tablespoon paprika
1 1/2
teaspoons salt
1/2
teaspoon pepper
3- to 3 1/2-lb cut-up whole chicken
Vegetable oil

Directions

  • 1 In shallow dish, mix flour, paprika, salt and pepper. Coat chicken with flour mixture.
  • 2 In 12-inch nonstick skillet, heat oil (1/4 inch) over medium-high heat. Cook chicken in oil, skin sides down, about 10 minutes or until light brown on all sides; reduce heat to low. Turn chicken skin sides up.
  • 3 Simmer uncovered about 20 minutes, without turning, until juice of chicken is clear when thickest part is cut to bone (170°F for breasts; 180°F for thighs and legs).

Expert Tips

Lighten it up: For 11 grams of fat and 250 calories per serving, remove skin from chicken before cooking. Use only 2 tablespoons oil in step 2.

To make Buttermilk Fried Chicken: Increase flour to 1 cup. Dip chicken into 1 cup buttermilk before coating with flour mixture.
