One of my favourites. Simple recipe for a great southern fried chidken. LOVE IT!

1 cup milk
2 cups flour
1 ½ tsp baking powder
2 Tbsp Shortening

Preheat cast iron skillet or fry pan to 350 degrees F (medium) and melt shortening and butter to coat bottom of pan well.
Mix together milk and eggs in a bowl. Place flour and baking powder in a pie place, toss to mix well.
Dip chicken in milk mixture then coat chicken with flour mixture; put in hot fat. Cover and cook for about 8 minutes. Sprinkle salt, pepper, and poultry seasons over chicken….turn chicken, cook 10 minutes. Turn heat down to 300 degrees F (medium low). Turn chicken and cook for 10 minutes on each side or until crispy and golden brown. Remove to plate with paper towel to rest. Serve.
Coat chicken in fine bread crumbs in place of flour and baking powder mixture.
