Fried Chicken With Cornflake Coating

I love making chicken this way. A dear friend of mine very kindly shared it with me many years ago and the rest you'll have to do the taste test to see what I'm talking about.

Ingredients:
  • 10 pieces of chicken ie. legs, thighs, breast, wings
  • Note: If you want, you can use boneless, skinless chicken breasts and pound them to make a cutlet.
  • 3 large eggs, beaten
  • 1 cup buttermilk or homogenized but I prefer to use buttermilk
  • 2-1/2 cups cornflakes, well crushed
  • Note: You can purchase them already crushed if you want to skip the step of crushing them yourself.
  • 1-1/2 tsp. garlic powder
  • 1-1/2 tsp. onion powder
  • 1 tsp. ground cumin
  • 1/4 tsp. cayenne powder
  • 1-1/2 tsp. paprika
  • 1 tsp. salt and pepper
  • 2 cups oil - whatever you prefer for deep frying

Directions

Whisk together eggs and buttermilk in a bowl.

Place crushed cornflakes and all seasonings into another bowl.

Heat oil in a deep skillet over medium heat until hot.

Dredge chicken pieces in egg mixture, allowing any excess to drip off.

Then coat the chicken in the cornflake crumbs.

It helps to press the crumbs to the chicken.

Fry chicken pieces until golden and cooked thoroughly.

Drain on paper towels.

Serve with: coleslaw and cornbread or any other combination that you prefer.
