1 cut-up frying chicken
1 egg
1 tablespoon baking powder
1 tablespoon paprika
1/2 teaspoon pepper
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon seasoned salt
1/3 cup evaporated milk
3/4 Flour


Beat egg in small bowl. Add evaporated milk and stir thoroughly.

Mix flour, paprika, baking powder, salts, and pepper in a bowl.

Use a small bowl to melt butter in microwave and then pour into shallow metal baking pan large enough to hold the chicken pieces.

Dip chicken pieces in egg/milk mixture and then roll in flour mix. Place into metal baking pan.

Set the grill to 375° and wait until this temperature stabilizes. Cook the chicken for 25 minutes. Then, reduce the heat to 325°, turn the chicken pieces over, and cook for 30 more minutes or until done.
