Have 4 frying chickens, 3 to 4 pounds each, cut into pieces for serving. Roll in seasoned flour and arrange in well-greased dripping pans. Sprinkle with melted shortening and bake in hot oven (450 F.) about hour until lightly browned. Baste occasionally with mixed melted butter and other shortening. When chicken is browned, cover with 2 thicknesses of heavy paper or foil. Lower heat to 225 F. and cook another hour until chicken is tender. Yield: 25 servings.
