Print Recipe


  • 5-6 lb chicken cut into pieces
  • ½ - 1 cup chicken broth
  • salt
  • fresh ground pepper
  • 1 cup all purpose flour
  • 2-3 tbsp sunflower oil or any type of cooking oil


  • Pre-heat oven to 350ยบ F
  • Cut chicken into pieces or use any pre cut chicken pieces you like.
  • Put flour onto plate for dredging chicken.
  • Heat oil in heavy bottomed frying pan. I love my cast iron.
  • Season chicken with salt and pepper.
  • Dredge chicken pieces into flour, shake off excess, then place in heated frying pan.
  • Fry both sides medium high heat until golden brown, transfer to heavy roasting pan.
  • After all chicken is browned, deglaze frying pan with chicken broth, scraping up all the flavourful bits from pan.
  • Pour over chicken, just until bottom of pan is covered! Don't add too much liquid or you will have soggy chicken skin. If pan starts to dry up while roasting simply add a bit more broth.
  • Cover and roast for about 1 hour until chicken is done.
  • Use pan drippings to make gravy the perfect gravy
