DIRECTIONS

  • Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil.
  • Add chicken, then reduce heat, cover and simmer until chicken is tender, 30 to 40 minutes.
  • Prepare Seasoning Mix.
  • Drain chicken and pat it dry.
  • Cool completely, then cut into 8 serving pieces.
  • Cut a long, deep pocket in meaty part of each piece, filling each pocket with about 2 tablespoons of Seasoning Mix.
  • Heat oil in a deep-fryer or large skillet to 375F (190C) or until a 1-inch bread cube turns golden brown in 50 seconds.
  • On a large plate, combine flour, salt and pepper; coat chicken pieces, shaking off any excess flour.
  • Dip pieces into beaten eggs, then roll them in bread crumbs to coat thoroughly.
  • Fry in batches (without crowding) until golden brown, 2 to 3 minutes on each side.
  • Drain on paper towels.
  • Seasoning Mix:
  • Peel and coarsely chop onions.
  • Place them with remaining ingredients in a blender or food processor fitted with the steel blade.
  • Process 1 to 2 minutes, until fairly smooth. (This mixture can be spooned into a jar and refrigerated several weeks for use as needed.).
