Gulf Shores Fried Chicken


There’s not much better than home-made fried chicken. Here is a simple recipe for fried chicken that’s great for picnics or sitting around on the porch.


  • 1 chicken, cut into eight pieces
  • 1 cup flour
  • Salt, pepper, cayenne pepper or Binky’s Seasoning (recipe following)
  • Solid Crisco or oil for frying


Place enough Crisco in an electric frying pan set at 350 to 375 degrees to come up the sides about ¼ of an inch. Since temperatures may vary on fry pans, be careful not to let the oil burn. Mix flour with seasonings. Coat chicken with seasoned flour and shake off excess. Brown chicken on each side, then cover and cook until juices run clear (about 20 minutes).
