Fried Chicken aka Chicken Bones

Yes, my kids affectionally call this meal "Chicken Bones"...I guess because this is the only time I don't use boneless, skinless chicken :)

Heat about 1 TBL of shortening in a skillet. I personally always use my electric skillet. Add 1 cup flour and a sprinkle of salt and pepper to a gallon size ziplock baggie. Shake mixture to mix. Rinse of chicken piece and shake in ziplock baggie. Add chicken to hot skillet. Cook until brown. I usually put the lid on, prepare other things, turn chicken, and repeat several times. Be sure to check the center of the chicken (right next to the bone) to make sure it's really done. When the chicken is cooked, remove chicken from skillet and pour in about 2 cups of milk. Stir with a whisk. Mix about 2 TBL of cornstarch w/ about 1/4 cup of milk in a separate cup. When milk in skillet begins to boil, add cornstarch milk mixture whisking constantly. This will make yummy chicken gravy that you can serve over mashed potatoes.

That is so funny, that is what my kids call any kind of chicken that is not boneless.
