As always the key to great cooking is preparation and quality ingredients.
Clean chicken and pat dry with paper towels. It's best to season your chicken the night before you plan to cook. Form your seasoning mixture by combining seasoning salt, garlic, meat tenderizer, cayenne pepper and onion powder. Generously sprinkle your entire chicken. Ensure the seasoning is applied to all sides. Place seasoned chicken in refrigerator overnight.
Take your chicken out of the refrigerator about 5-10 minutes before you start cooking. After your 5-10 minute wait, coat each piece of chicken with flour.
Over medium-low heat, melt butter and heat vegetable oil in a skillet large enough to hold all of the chicken. Fry chicken over medium low heat until browned on one side. Turn chicken over and brown the other side evenly. Once the grease cooks off and gets absorbed by the chicken add a couple tablespoons of water (this makes the chicken moist). Reduce heat, cover and simmer for 30 minutes.
