This is an un-tried recipe. My dad told me about this recipe that his mom used to make for him when he was little. I need to make it for him one day soon, and when I do, I'll update this recipe.


Step 1
Season chicken with salt & pepper. Dredge in flour and set aside.
Step 2
In large cast iron skillet (must be cast iron) heat butter until bubbly. Add chicken pieces and reduce heat. Slow cook chicken in butter for about 30-45 minutes, or until chicken reaches 165 degrees.

I was inspired by the movie “Julie & Julia” and started making everything with butter. This was the result of a week long foray into butter. Of course, I also was inspired by my grandmother’s recipe for fried chicken. I have yet to make her version, however, I did include it below for you to try.

I think the whole pieces of chicken with skin on will make a much better butter fried chicken, but I didn’t have those on hand and I didn’t have a cast iron skillet available. So, you do with what you’ve got.

So here is the cholesterol rich, heart-attack inducing, butter fried chicken recipe. Enjoy!
