This dish is a favorite for both of my children.
I usually buy boneless/skinless chicken breast and begin by washing the chicken and cutting each breast into 3-4 pieces. For today's pictures, I actually found the tenderloins a little cheaper. I still cut some of them a little smaller than they came in the package.
First mix about 1 cup all-purpose flour with about 1/2 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper.
Then it is rolled in the bowl of plain flour...
Then it is placed on a piece of wax paper to wait...
When all of the chicken is ready, I heat about an 1/8-1/4 inch of oil in a skillet. (I use canola oil.) The chicken is then carefully placed in the skillet. Sometimes I will sprinkle a little seasoning salt on top for a different taste.
I cook the chicken for 3-4 minutes on each side (medium low heat)...turning with a fork when it begins to brown.
I do cover the chicken with a lid as it cooks. (You know fried chicken tastes better if it is cooked in a really ugly pan with a really ugly lid...no joke.)
Cook for three-four minutes on the other side.
The chicken is then removed to paper towels to get rid of any excess oil.
I have found the secret to delicious chicken is to avoid overcooking it. This has always been a problem for me, because I want to be sure the chicken is done. If you cook it just right, it will easily cut with a fork.
I made this meal several days ago...and now I am wishing this was what we were having for supper tonight. Oh well...
Because I'm loving this fried chicken, I will be linking up with Tidy Mom.
