Very basic, but a nice crust for chicken. We deep fried bite-sized pieces of chicken in canola oil, in the deep fryer for 3 minutes each batch. They weren't soggy or greasy. This is an excellent recipe for picky kids too. I served these alongside some homemade dipping sauces & everyone enjoyed it. I would probably have given it 5 stars except the ingredient list calls for "salt", only to find out in step #3 a salt BLEND is used. I chose to add a shake of Johnny's seasoning salt as well, concerned that the breading would be too salty but it wasn't. I'll just make sure I use the blend only next time. Thanks for sharing, chef!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Beat eggs and milk together in a bowl.
  2. Cut chicken to desired size and dip in egg/milk mixture.
  3. In another bowl, combine flour, salt blend (I use Morton Nature's Season seasoning blend) and pepper. Coat chicken pieces in flour mixture.
  4. Heat oil in frying pan ( I use about 1/4 cup) and brown chicken on both sides. Drain on paper towel, then place in a 9 x 13 baking dish. Cover and bake at 325 for 30 minutes.
