Perfect for Fourth of July picnics!
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 tbsp dried thyme
1 tbsp dried paprika
2 tsp salt
1 tsp pepper
1/3 cup whole milk
2 tbsp lemon juice
1 broiler/fryer chicken (3 to 4 lbs), cut up
Oil for frying
In a shallow bowl, mix the first five ingredients. In a separate shallow bowl, whisk the milk, egg and lemon juice. Coat chicken pieces, one at a time, with flour mixture; dip in milk mixture, then coat again with flour mixture.
In an electric skillet or deep-fat fryer, heat oil to 375. Fry chicken, a few pieces at a time, for 6-10 minutes on each side or until chicken juices run clear. Drain on paper towels.
