DIRECTIONS

  • To cut down some frying time, you can partially cook chicken. Sometimes I boil pieces or will cook in a frying pan with some extra virgin olive oil.
  • In a shallow plate or bowl, mix the flour, seasoned salt, garlic powder, salt and pepper.
  • In a shallow bowl, beat the eggs.
  • Dip the chicken pieces in egg and roll or shake in flour mixture. Dip back into eggs and then back into flour mixture for double coating.
  • In a large skillet, heat oil for frying.
  • Fry coated chicken on each side for about 5 minutes.
  • Cover skillet and cook on lower heat for about 10 minutes.
  • Remove cover, turn up heat and fry for 5 minutes on each side to make chicken crispy.
  • **Chicken is done when no longer pink inside and juices run clear.**.
  • Drain fried chicken on paper towels and keep warm in oven until ready to serve.
  • In fryer, I heat to 350-400 degrees F.
  • Drop chicken in the basket and fry for about 7 minutes or until chicken is crispy and fully cooked. *This is the reason that I partially cook the chicken - to make sure that it gets thoroughly cooked and so it stays juicy*
  • Eat with favorite dipping sauce or just crispy! ENJOY!
