Fried Chicken with Gravy

1/2 cup milk
1 egg beaten

Beat above ingredients in medium bowl.

1 cup flour
2 tsp garlic salt
1 tsp paprika
1 tsp ground pepper
1/4 tsp poultry seasoning

Mix above ingredients in ziploc bag

4 pounds chicken pieces, washed and dried
3 cups oil for frying
1 cup chicken broth
1 cup milk

Dip chicken in egg mixture then shake in flour mixture. Fry in oil till done (at 365 degrees thermometer) then turn to medium low till done.

Gravy- Discard oil and save 2 Tbsp of the oil with the brown bits and stuff on the bottom. Stir in 2 Tbsp of dipping flour and make a roux. Add chicken broth and milk and stir till thickened. Simmer stirring constantly. Add milk to desired thickness.

*note- I usually fry my chicken till brown and then put it in the oven uncovered to finish cooking.
