I just learned that today is National Fried Chicken Day! Here's my favorite recipe:
1/2 cup flour
1 1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper
1 tsp paprika
1/2 tsp poultry seasoning
1 slightly beaten egg
2 tbspns water
2 1/2 - 3 pounds of chicken cut into pieces (cutting the breasts in half will make the pieces more uniform and help them cook in the same amount of time)
enough oil to fill your frying pan about 1/2 way
Combine the dry ingredients and put in a paper or plastic baggie
Combine the egg and water.
Dip the chicken in the egg mixture then shake in the flour mixture.
Place in skillet with hot oil and cook over medium heat until nicely browned. Turn the chicken over and repeat. Test with a meat thermometer to be sure it's done.
This method takes a little longer than deep frying. But pan-fried is the traditional method.
And you'll find all kinds of recipes that soak the chicken in buttermilk, add some hot sauce or other spicy seasonings, etc. They are all good. I have done one where I browned the chicken using this method then finished it in the oven - about 15 minutes or so at 375. It was good, too.
My all-time favorite lunch when I was working - a trip to the local grocery store for one fried chicken breast and a nice fruit or veggie salad from the store's salad bar.
