  • My sister makes fried chicken and all she does is cut the chicken breasts into strips and put them in a bowl of water, mix flour (all purpose) with a good helping of salt, cover the chicken in that, and fries it in a frying pan with crisco on about heat setting of...7. Everyone always LOVES it. You just gotta test the first few pieces to make sure you enough salt in with the flour, otherwise it will be bland.

  • mm also you could go to the store, pick up some chicken breasts, take them to the meat department and ask them to cube it for you. Take it home and make an egg/milk mixture to dip the chicken in and after that cover the chicken in Italian Bread Crumbs :) Then fry :) That HAS to impress.

  • Edit: you need to cover the chicken in flour before you dip it in the egg wash

  • Country style Oven fried Chicken:

    1 c. flour

    2 tsp. garlic salt

    2 tsp. pepper

    1 tsp. paprika

    1/2 tsp. poultry seasoning

    1/2 c. milk

    1 egg, beaten

    2 to 3 lb. chicken parts

    In a large bowl combine the dry ingredients. In another bowl whisk together milk and egg. Roll chicken in flour mixture, then dip in egg mixture and roll again in flour mixture. Heat about 1/4 to 1/3 c. vegetable oil in a large skillet. Fry chicken in batches until golden brown on all sides, about 5 minutes. Put chicken in a large cake pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 35 minutes or until juices run clear.

  • Mine is really close to Michigan Moms. I love the idea of sealing the juices in with the initial frying and then slow cooking in the oven to finish it off. Very juicy.
