"Make-a-Wish" Fried Chicken
Cream Gravy

    1 cup all-purpose flour
    2 teaspoons salt
    1 teaspoon pepper
    3 pounds chicken pieces
    Lard or shortening

    Combine flour, salt, and pepper in a shallow bowl, mixing well.

    Dip each piece of chicken in milk, then roll in flour, coating heavily.

    In a heavy skillet, melt fat to a depth of 1/2 inch. When fat is moderately
    hot, gently lower chicken into it, placing skin side down.

    Do not crowd the pieces; turn and fry until golden brown on all sides.

    Cover skillet and reduce heat; simmer until fork-tender. The meatier pieces
    will take from 25 to 30 minutes; wings and backs will cook more quickly.

    Remove cover for last 5 minutes for a crisp crust.

    Drain chicken on paper towels; keep warm while making gravy.

    Serves 4.

    3 tablespoons drippings
    3 tablespoons flour
    2 1/2 cups milk
    1/2 cup cream
    Salt and pepper

    Pour all drippings from skillet into a small bowl; measure and replace 3 tablespoons.

    Stir in flour until well blended; cook over medium heat for 2 to 3 minutes,
    until bubbly.

    Gradually add milk and cream; boil until thick and smooth, stirring constantly.

    Then, season with salt and pepper to your taste.

    Serve in a hot gravy boat or bowl.

    Note: Half butter and half vegetable oil or lard gives a delicate flavor to fried chicken,
    but any fat may be used satisfactorily.
