Place the chicken in a shallow glass dish or ceramic bowl.

Coat the chicken pieces well with the flour mixture.

Set aside 1 Tablespoon of the flour mixture.

Gently place the floured chicken skin side down in the hot grease.

Slowly fry the chicken pieces until crisp and the juices run yellow when pricked with a fork, about 20 minutes on each side.
