DIRECTIONS

  • Beat together the egg and milk and set aside.
  • Mix together the salt, black pepper, paprika and white pepper and sprinkle on both sides of chicken breasts.
  • Dredge the chicken breasts in the flour, shaking off the excess.
  • Then dip each piece in the egg/milk mixture, then back in the flour.
  • Set chicken pieces aside on a piece of waxed paper.
  • Heat the cooking oil in a large cast-iron or other heavy skillet over medium-high heat for a few minutes.
  • Oil should be about a half-inch deep in the pan.
  • Check the temperature with a drop of water; if it pops and spits back at you, it's ready.
  • Carefully place each chicken breast into the hot oil. Protect yourself (and your kitchen) from the popping grease that results.
  • Fry chicken breasts on both sides, turning once, until golden brown.
  • Reduce heat to low, and cook 15 to 18 minutes until chicken pieces are done through.
  • Drain on paper towels.
