How to Make It

Step 1    

In a bowl, mix the milk with the eggs, 1 teaspoon of salt and 1/2 teaspoon of pepper. In a large, sturdy plastic bag, mix the flour with 1 teaspoon of salt.

Step 2    

Divide the lard between 2 large cast-iron skillets and heat to 350° over moderate heat. (Alternatively, heat half the lard in 1 large skillet and fry the chicken in batches, adding the remaining lard as needed.)

Step 3    

Dip the chicken pieces in the egg mixture, turning to coat. Transfer the chicken to the bag of flour; shake to coat.

Step 4    

Divide the chicken between the skillets; don't crowd the pieces. Fry, turning occasionally, until dark golden and crisp, about 15 minutes for the wings, 20 minutes for the other pieces. Transfer the chicken to a rack set over paper towels to drain, then pat with paper towels and keep warm in the oven while you fry the remaining chicken; serve hot.

Serve With

Hot sauce.
