Cook Time: 20 - 25 minutes Number of Servings: 6

 2 1/2-3 Pound Chicken, cut-up
 2 Cups Vegetable Oil
 1/4 Cup Chives
 1/2 Cup Flour
 1 Tbsp Cornmeal
 2 Tsp Poultry Seasoning
 1 Dash Salt
 1 Dash Pepper

Wash and clean the chicken pieces and pat them dry on paper
towel.  Heat the oil to 375 degrees in a heavy skillet (cast iron
preferably).  With a sharp knife, score the chicken pieces and
fill each slash with a bit of seasoning making sure that it is well
inside the chicken.  Mix flour, cornmeal, poultry seasoning,
salt and pepper in a paper bag.  Place the chicken pieces in
the bag and shake until they are well coated.  Place chicken
pieces in the hot oil and cook for 20 - 25 minutes, turning
occasionally to ensure that they are golden brown on all sides.

Remove from the oil and drain it on paper towel.  Serve hot.
