An easy way to dust chicken with flour is to first mix the flour, salt and pepper together into a little bowl and pour it into a tea strainer

After washing the chicken well in cold water, drain and dry with paper towels. Place the pieces on a large plate.

Sift flour and seasoning from the tea strainer over chicken on one side and turn chicken over and repeat. Grind extra pepper over the chicken to taste.
Bake at 350° for 40 minutes. Custard is best if not over baked.
