Chicken Fried Chicken

"I love this recipe! We eat this at least once a week. My kids love it with mashed potates or dirty rice. I have never actually used exact measurements so if you need to add a little more or less, it is ok. (Update: I have omitted the previous step 9. Thanks for the advice!)"

  1. This recipe is much healthier than most for fried chicken! We'll definitely try it - and although we are VERY health conscious I think every now and then one must have all the trimmings! I think using the olive oil is a good choice and adding some roasted garlic to those mashed potatoes might be both good and good for you. Perhaps not for diabetics and heart patients but it sounds wonderful for those of us who aren't on such restricted diets. Great recipe, Thanks!
  2. Wow! This was excellent... I used flour instead of cracker crumbs only because I didn't have any - The entire family enjoyed.... Thank you!
  3. Wonderful recipe. The chicken was moist and tasty. Loved the cracker crumbs!! Will definitely make again. We loved it!!
  4. I thought this was pretty good. This was the first time I had used cracker crumbs as a coating for chicken. I don't think I will do that again as I much prefer dry bread crumbs or flour.
  5. Fantastic recipe! I've actually used this a few times now and each time everyone loves it. Absolutely delicious chicken! Thanks for the post!


I am a stay at home mommy of 2. I have a 4 year old boss (girl) and a 2 year old loverboy. They make every day fun, full, exciting, frustrating and everything in between. I love to cook and like to find things that my 4yo picky eater will like. My hubby and I have gotten to really enjoy the food in this area. We are currently living in the Texas Gulf Coast but are originally from Utah. I have noticed that Southern cooking is an art form with no exacts. I love that!! My husband and I have been together for 12 years and married 6 glorious ones!;) He is a good sport and will try almost anything. I love to bake and strive to be "that mom" that always has a treat for everyone that is fun and good. <img src=""><img src="" border="0" alt="Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket"><img src="" border="0" alt="Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket"><img src=""><img src=""> <img src="" border="0" alt="Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket"> <img src="">
