2. Combine the salt, garlic powder, paprika, pepper and flour in a plastic bag or big bowl.
3 Put ¼ inch of vegetable oil into frying pan, dutch oven or most ideal…cast iron skillet (aah mine’s not unpacked…yet!) and heat it up.
4 Dredge the chicken in the flour mixture; make sure the chicken cover real well with the flour mixture.
5 Shake off the excess flour.
