1 chicken, 3 1/2 pounds
3 cups shortening
1 cup buttermilk
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon paprika
3 teaspoons black pepper
1 cup flour
3 cups honey, heated to 120 degrees
Cut chicken into serving pieces: breast into halves, legs, thighs, and wings separated for a total of 8 pieces. Clean thoroughly. Heat shortening in a heavy duty skillet pan to 360 degrees. Dip chicken pieces in buttermilk. Sprinkle with salt, paprika, and black pepper. Place flour into a heavy plastic bag, put chicken pieces into the bag and shake vigorously until well coated. Dust off excess flour. Place pieces into skillet, and fry both sides until golden brown and the juices run clear when pierced with a fork. Do not over-crowd the skillet. Approximate cooking time, 25 minutes. Take chicken out of skillet and place on paper towel to drain off excess oil. Immediately dip warm chicken into hot honey, and serve.
