Ingredients

Directions

Cut chicken into eight pieces. Rinse pieces in cold water and let them soak in fresh cold salted water for at least 30 minutes. Drain and pat dry. Mix thoroughly flour, seasoned salt, pepper and garlic powder to make the fried chicken flour. Heat 1 inch of oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat (375 in an electric skillet). Dredge chicken through flour mixture, coating well on all sides. Place chicken in hot oil, making sure pieces are not touching each other. When the chicken is browned (approximately 5 minutes), turn pieces over and reduce heat to medium (300). Cover and cook for 20 minutes. Then remove lid, bring heat back to medium high and turn chicken, cooking an additional 5-7 minutes.

While chicken is cooking, prepare the spicy lard by melting the lard in the saucepan and adding spices. Stir well to ensure that all ingredients are well combined and distributed (the spices will settle over time). Once the chicken is removed from the frying skillet, immediately dunk and coat it in the hot seasoned lard, stirring to ensure that the spices have not settled.

Set the pieces of chicken on slices of white bread to absorb the extra grease and garnish with sliced pickles.
