Recipe by Spit In Soup
True comfort food - this is yummy! Watch potato amounts - I use 1 1/2 LARGE bags of shredded hash browns but I am not sure how many oz the bags are, but the biggest ore-ida bag I can find - like double the average size bag. I estimated that it was a 20 oz bag.
- 4 1⁄2 lbs chicken parts, rinsed (12 pieces)
- 30 ounces frozen shredded hash browns, thawed
- 2 (10 1/2 ounce) cans condensed cream of mushroom soup
- 1 cup ranch salad dressing
- 1 cup sour cream
- 2 cups cheddar cheese
- 2 teaspoons instant minced onion
- 1⁄2 teaspoon seasoning salt
- 2 cups flour
- 2 eggs
- 1⁄2 cup milk
- 1 (12 ounce) can fried onions
- 1⁄2 cup vegetable oil
Directions See How It's Made
- Put oil in heavy fry pan and heat on medium until hot.
- Combine eggs and milk, mix well. Add salt and pepper to taste.
- Combine flour and salt and pepper to taste in large zip lock bag. A few pieces at a time, place chicken in egg mix, then in bag of flour and shake. Remove from bag, shake off excess and place in pan of hot oil. Repeat and cook chicken parts until partially cooked and browned on exterior. Interior will cook in oven.
