“This is from the Little House on the Prarie cookbook. It is an old recipe but very good. I actually like it better cold the next day than fresh. If you are looking for one with a heavy batter or KFC style, this isn't for you. I have no idea if my cooking time is accurate...”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Place chicken pieces in a large bowl and sprinkle with vinegar and salt.
  2. Cover with cold water and set aside (I put it in the fridge) for 30 minutes to 1 hour.
  3. After 30 minutes (or so) heat the oil in a frying pan (I use a cast iron skillet) over medium/high heat. Let the oil come up 1/4 to 1/2 way up the sides of the pan.
  4. Drain chicken and, one at a time, coat with flour.
  5. Fry the chicken in hot oil until brown on all sides.
  6. You can either finish the chicken in oven or lower the heat, so it doesn't burn, and cook the chicken through in the pan.
