Ingredients:

  • 1 rabbit, cut into pieces
  • 1/3 cup flour
  • 1 teaspoon homemade garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon homemade onion powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper, or to taste (optional)
  • Canola oil, for frying

Gravy

  • 3 tablespoons flour
  • 1 1/2 cups chicken broth
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Directions:

Sift together dry ingredients to make coating.

In a large, heavy skillet - heat 1/4 inch oil over medium-high heat.

Meanwhile, add the rabbit pieces to the flour mixture; shake to coat evenly. When the oil is hot, fry the rabbit until brown on all sides. Lower the heat, cover, and cook for 20 to 25 minutes; turning the pieces once. Uncover and crisp up the outside of the meat. Drain well on paper towels and cover with foil to keep warm.


Leave 3 tablespoons of oil in the skillet and discard the rest. For the gravy, whisk in the flour until you get a golden roux and add the milk. Whisk well over medium heat until the gravy thickens and is bubbly. Season with salt and pepper. Serve this gravy over each piece of fried rabbit.


Serve this with mashed potatoes and homemade biscuits.
