DIRECTIONS

  • In a shallow dish or bowl combine egg with soup and 1/2 teaspoon seasoned salt; mix until thoroughly combined.
  • Add the chicken pieces and using your clean hands toss to coat completely; set aside or you may refrigerate until ready to finish making the recipe.
  • In a medium bowl mix together flour with cornstarch, 1 teaspoon garlic powder, paprika, 1 teaspoon seasoned salt and black pepper.
  • Working with one piece of chicken at a time, place the soup-coated chicken into the flour mixture and toss to coat completely.
  • Add more flour and/or cornstarch if necessary adding them in equal parts (there should be an equal amount of each in the mixture, if you add in 2 tablespoons flour you must add in 2 tablespoons cornstarch with the flour).
  • Place the coated chicken on a rack and allow to sit until it becomes doughy (THIS IS A CRUCIAL STEP to ensure crispiness when fried).
  • Heat oil in a deep skillet over medium heat (be certain to use enough oil to cover the chicken pieces).
  • Once the chicken is doughy test oil by dropping in a piece of the "dough" into it the oil is ready when it stars to fry immediately.
  • Fry chicken pieces in oil for about 10 minutes or until cooked through and juices run clear.
  • Drain on a rack.
