Easy Fried Chicken

Living in the South, naturally I needed to learn how to make good fried chicken. This is our family’s favorite version. Everyone loves this and it is quick and easy. I don’t even feel too guilty about it if I use Canola or olive oil. It is skinless so that’s another bonus.

Cooking oil (peanut oil is great if it’s available. I usually just use olive or Canola oil)
2 pounds boneless chicken breasts cut into smaller pieces
Milk (buttermilk is also good)
Salt and Pepper
Poultry seasoning and paprika to taste (optional)

Fill skillet about 1/3 full of oil and heat while you prepare the chicken. Wash chicken and pat dry. Cut into small pieces. Roll in flour (if you use poultry seasoning and paprika add it directly to the flour before dredging), dip in milk and then roll in flour again. Place in hot oil. Salt and pepper to taste. Make sure the skillet is completely full of chicken and then cover the skillet. Cook for 10 minutes. When the chicken is golden brown turn it over and salt and pepper the second side. Fry until golden brown.
