Original recipe makes 6



Preparation time: 10 minutes Cooking time: 25 minutes per batch Rinse chicken pieces in cold water and pat dry with paper towels; set aside. Combine flour, salt, pepper and paprika in a brown paper bag. Fold down top and shake to mix ingredients. In a large bowl, beat the eggs well. In a large cast-iron skillet or Dutch oven, heat the oil over medium-high heat until it just begins to smoke, about 350 degrees. Dip chicken pieces, one at a time, in the beaten eggs, then drop into the bag of flour mixture. Fold down top and shake to coat. Shake off excess flour and place in hot oil. Do not crowd. Cook in 2 or 3 batches, if necessary. Lightly brown on one side, about 8 minutes, turn and cook until golden brown, 8 to 10 minutes. Turn once again and cook 5 minutes or until golden brown and juices run clear when pieces are pierced with a fork. Drain on paper towels.
