Trim the excess fat and skin from each piece of chicken.

Sprinkle the pieces with salt and pepper.

Stir the flour and paprika together in a shallow bowl.

Dredge the chicken pieces in the seasoned flour to coat on all sides.

Shake off the excess flour.

Pour enough vegetable oil into a heavy deep skillet (cast-iron is perfect) to fill it to 2 inches.

Heat over medium heat to 375℉ (190℃). (A small cube of bread dropped in the dropped in the oil will brown in about 20 seconds.)

Add only as many of the chicken pieces as will fit without touching.

Overcrowding will lower the temperature of the oil and make your fried chicken greasy.

With a long-handled fork or tongs to prevent getting splattered, turn the chicken pieces until they are golden brown on all sides and cooked through, about 6 minutes.

The easiest way to tell if the chicken is cooked is to poke a fork down to the bone near the thickest part - if the chicken is cooked the juices will run clear, not pink.

Remove the chicken pieces from the skillet to drain.

If you have to fry the chicken in batches, keep the fried chicken warm on a baking sheet in a 250 F oven.

When all the chicken is fried, sprinkle the pieces with paprika and serve hot.
