Home Cooked Fried Chicken

A great and easy home cooked meal for Sunday lunch

On a Sunday, home cooked meal is the best part of the day for me. The following is a simple recipe of making an easy home cooked meal for Sunday lunch.


  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup cornmeal
  • 2 tablespoons salt
  • 2 tablespoons ground mustard (optional)
  • 2 tablespoons paprika
  • 1 tablespoon pepper
  • 1 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1 broiler/fryer chicken (2-1/2 to 3-1/2 pounds), cut up
  • Oil for deep-fat frying

Combine all ingredients except chicken and oil. Place about 1 cup flour mixture in a paper or plastic bag. Shake a few chicken pieces in the bag at a time, coating well. On medium-high, heat 1/2 in. of oil in a large skillet. Brown chicken on all sides; remove to a large shallow baking pan. Bake, uncovered, at 350° for 45-60 minutes or until done. Recipe makes enough coating for three chickens. Store unused mixture in an airtight container. 4-6 servings.
