Easy to make, but takes time to marinate. If you like garlic, you will like this. Being a former West Virginia girl, I like this with pinto beans, greens and a side of cornbread.
- 6 chicken breasts, cut into 1/2 inch strips (or chicken tenders)
- 1 egg, beaten
- 1 cup buttermilk
- 1 1⁄2 teaspoons garlic powder
- 1 cup all-purpose flour
- 1 cup seasoned bread crumbs
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 4 cups oil (for frying)
- Place chicken strips into a large, resealable plastic bag. In a small bowl, mix the egg, buttermilk and garlic powder. Pour mixture into bag with chicken. Seal and refrigerate 2 to 4 hours.
- In another large, resealable plastic bag, mix together the flour, bread crumbs, salt and baking powder. Remove chicken from refrigerator, drain, discarding buttermilk mixture. Place chicken in flour mixture bag. Seal and shake to coat.
- Heat oil in a large, heavy skillet to 375 degrees.
- Carefully place coated chicken in hot oil. Fry until golden brown and juices run clear.
- Drain on paper towels.
EXCELLENT !!! I omitted the salt, but other than that what a great recipe. It made for a easy, quick dinner. The marinade was freat . Made for Holiday tag.
For me this worked out perfect delicious and easy. I passed on the salt and added some Mrs Dash, Parmesean Cheese and Hot Pepper flakes to the Bread crumb mixture. My hubby loved these and so did I. Thanks !
This was very good. I love garlic, but it was not overpowering. I did have to add more salt after the chicken fried, because it needed more. It was nice and juicy and very tasty. It's certainly a keeper.
