 Ingredients List

  • 2 Young broiling chickens (2
  • 1/2 lb Ea)
  • Salt & pepper
  • 2 c Flour
  • 2 c Lard
  • 1 1/2 ts Baking powder
  • 3 1/2 c Milk


Quarter chickens. Season with salt & pepper & roll each in flour. Use
2 iron frying pans. Add lard to depth of 2" or more. Heat lard, add
chickens & cover for a few minutes. Then saute', uncovered, until
nicely browned. Remove chicken to absorbent paper & keep in warm
place. Make biscuit dough using 1 1/2 cups flour, 1/4 cup lard, 1
tsp. salt, the baking powder & 1/2 cup milk. Pat out on board to 1/2"
thickness & cut in 2" rounds. Drop biscuits into hot lard the chicken
was cooked in. Brown biscuits on both sides, drain on paper, & keep
hot. To make gravy, pour off lard. Return 1/4 cup lard to one of the
pans & blend in 1/4 cup flour. Gradually add 3 cups milk. Cook,
stirring constantly, over low heat until thickened. Season to taste.
Serve chicken with biscuit puffs & gravy.
