HONEY FRIED CHICKEN

This recipe is from an old newspaper clipping I found in my mother's home years ago.

3 lbs cut-up chicken
3/4 cup honey
3/4 to 1 cup buttermilk baking mix (such as Bisquik)
2 tsp dry mustard
1/2 tsp paprika
Salt to taste
Pepper to taste
Vegetable oil

Coat chicken pieces with honey; set aside. Combine the baking mix, mustard, paprika, salt and pepper together. Dredge chicken pieces in the baking mix mixture. Pour enough oil in a 12-inch heavy skillet to reach a depth of 1/2-inch. Allow oil to heat to 375 degrees over medium heat. Carefully place the chicken pieces in the hot oil and cook about 5 minutes or until underside of pieces is golden brown. Turn chicken pieces and cook another 5 minutes. Reduce heat and cook for 7 to 10 minutes longer or until the chicken juices run clear. Drain chicken pieces on paper toweling.

Alternate method: Brown both sides of chicken in skillet. Place on a baking sheet and bake in a 350 degree oven for 20 to 30 minutes, until juices run clear.
