Ingredients

  • 1 quart canola or vegetable oil
  • One 3-pound chicken, cut into 8 pieces 
  • Seasoning salt and black pepper 
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne, optional 
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour 

Directions

Special equipment: a deep-frying thermometer

Add the oil to a large, deep frying pan over high heat; heat to 350 degrees F on a deep-frying thermometer.

Generously sprinkle the chicken on both sides with some seasoning salt, then sprinkle with 1 teaspoon black pepper and the cayenne if using. Put the flour in a plastic or paper bag.

Two pieces at a time, add the chicken to the bag and shake until coated in flour. Shake off the excess flour and place the chicken in the hot oil. Fry until golden brown, 8 minutes per side. Transfer to a paper-towel-lined plate to absorb the excess oil.
