Crunchy Fried Chicken

Ingredients
1 whole fryer chicken, cut to pieces
2 cups all-purpose flour
3 eggs, beaten
1 tablespoon salt
1 teaspoon pepper
3 to 4 cups canola oil for frying

Procedure
Put 1 cup flour in a gallon ziploc and put the chicken pieces in. Shake well making sure all chicken pieces get dredged in flour. Put the remaining 1 cup of flour in a bowl and add the salt and pepper. Mix well. Heat the frying pan or skillet to 350 degrees F. With a tong, get one piece of chicken from the ziploc and soak in a bowl with the eggs beaten and then dredge with the other remaining 1 cup of flour in a bowl with the salt and pepper. Fry in a pan until golden brown or about 15 to 20 minutes. Repeat the process without overcrowding the frying pan.

* Use catsup as a dip or make a brown sauce with the residue from the pan by removing the oil and adding 1/2 cup water and 1 tablespoon flour. Season with salt and pepper and add 1 tablespoon butter.
