1Preheat the oven to 100 degrees and place a rack in a large baking pan.
2Combine 1 ½ cup of milk and 2 eggs in a bowl, whisk to blend them all well.
3In a large heavy-duty resealable plastic food storage bag, combine the 2 ½ cups of flour, 2 Tbsp. salt, and 2 tsp. pepper.
4Dip a chicken piece in the milk mixture; let excess drip off into the bowl.
5Put a few chicken pieces in the bag and shake lightly to coat thoroughly.
6Remove to a plate and repeat with remaining chicken pieces.
7Heat oil in a deep, heavy skillet to 200 degrees.
8Fry the chicken, a few pieces at a time, for about 10 minutes on each side, or until golden brown and thoroughly cooked.
9Chicken breasts will take a little less time than other pieces.
10Pierce with a fork to see if juices run clear to check for doneness or use an instant-read thermometer. The minimum safe temperature for chicken is 80 degrees.
11With a slotted spoon, move to paper towels to drain; sprinkle with salt.
12Transfer the drained chicken to the prepared pan with rack. Move the chicken to the oven to keep warm while frying subsequent batches.
