Old-Time Fried Chicken
This crispy chicken still keeps diners returning to the Brookville Hotel restaurant in Abilene, Kansas. Restaurant owner Mark Martin skillet-fries his chicken in lard -- just as his grandma did -- and serves the chicken with coleslaw and creamed corn. The great flavor is the reason readers continue requesting the recipe, first published in our October 1987 issue. If you'd rather, you can cook your chicken in shortening or cooking oil.
