Ingredients

Directions

Cut away excess skin and fat from chicken pieces. Rinse with cold water and set aside; do not pat dry.

In a shallow bowl, stir together fry coating and 1 tablespoon chicken seasoning. Dredge chicken pieces in coating mixture; set aside.

In a large straight-sided pan, heat 1/2-inch oil over medium-high heat. Oil is ready for frying when a drop of water splatters when dropped in.

Fry coated chicken until golden brown, about 8 minutes per side. Remove chicken from pan and drain oil.

In a medium bowl, stir together gravy, remaining chicken seasoning, and crushed garlic; set aside.

Return chicken to pan over medium heat. Cover with gravy. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat, cover and simmer for 10 to 20 minutes or until completely done (no pink near the bone).

Serve hot.
