I could NEVER make fried chicken before. I just really sucked at it. Until I found this recipe. It is now one of our family favorites!!
1/2 cup milk
1 egg, beaten
1 cup flour
2 teaspoons garlic salt
1 teaspoon paprika
1 teaspoon black pepper
1/4 teaspoon poultry seasoning (I didn't have any so I used basil and oregano)
3 cups vegetable oil
1 cup chicken broth
1 cup milk
chicken..the recipe calls for a 4-lb whole chicken, cut into pieces; I used 4 boneless, skinless breasts
In a medium bowl, beat together the 1/2 cup milk and egg. In a resealable plastic bag, mix together flour and spices (I didn't use a bag, I used another bowl and dredged the chicken). Place chicken in bag, seal and shake to coat. Dip chicken in milk and egg mix, then once more shake in bag with flour. Let sit for 10 minutes.Reserve 2 tablespoons of flour mixture.
In a large skillet, heat oil to 365. Place coated chicken in the hot oil, and brown on all sides. Reduce heat to medium-low and continue cooking chicken until tender, about 30 minutes (with the boneless breasts it was more like 20). Remove chicken from skillet and drain on paper towels.
Discard all but 2 tablespoons of the frying oil. Over low heat, stir in 2 tablespoons of the reserved flour mixture. Stirring constantly, cook about 2 minutes. Whisk in chicken broth, scraping browned bits off bottom of skillet. Stir in 1 cup milk, and bring all to a boil over high heat, stirring constantly. Reduce heat to low, and simmer for about 5 minutes. Serve immediately with the chicken.
