This was made on 9/10/09 as part of mine and SO's dinner. Since there was just the two of us, only 1 chicken was used. And I made the rest of the recipe as follows: for the egg mixture, 1 egg and 1/4 cup of milk. For the coating, the full amount of flour was used, for the seasonings I just shook in a little bit of each one till "it smelled right " ( I know that sounds strange but that's how I do it ;) ). I fried this in a regular skillet, using the directions in Step 5, and it worked just fine. And I of course made the gravy, if you serve fried chicken and mashed potatoes you have to have gravy ,it's a law :). I have to tell you, this is the first time I've ever fried chicken and it turned out done in the center and crispy on the outside. Very good flavor ,and just the right amount of stuff to lick off your fingers. Yummers !!!! .This will be made again. Thanks for posting and, " Keep Smiling :) "
This chicken was absolutely delicious! The coating made the chicken nice and crisp on the outside and moist and tender on the inside. The seasonings and gravy were really flavorful. I will make this again, thanks Nimz! I made this for Spring PAC 2009.
Made for the *Best of 2008* cookbook game & because I think there is no better comfort food than a plate of fried chicken w/mashed taters & gravy. I used lrg chicken breasts that I cut in tenders for uniform coating, veg oil for frying & added poultry seasoning to the spice mixture. We pigged out on this delicious chicken & the next dy for lunch I polished off the yummy gravy over bread - a habit from my childhood that my brother & I fought over unless there was enough for 2. Thx for sharing this recipe w/us. :-)
Excellent! Love the flavor of the chicken. Thank you!
AWESOME fried chicken with a perfect coating and seasoning!!! I have been making fried chicken for over 25 years and now have a new favorite way for making it!!! My old way was similar to this recipe except I never dipped the chicken in the egg mixture before flouring. The only thing I changed was I added some sea salt to the flour mixture and added part butter for the shortening for added flavor. Thanks so much Nimz for sharing your family's recipe. Made for Went to the Market Tag game.
My very first self-made fried chicken! And it is wonderful and I didn't burn down my house...or even singe any curtains. (There's a story behind that...:-) I am very proud of myself and proud to have this now as "my" recipeIwith appropriate credit given, of course). Thanks, Nimz!
This was delicious. I just wish I could post a better picture of the chicken. I do not have a cast iron skillet so I don't know if this was what it was supposed to look like. The skin reminded me, texturewise of KFC's.....moist and juicy. Will make again. Thank you.
This was delicious! My husband is home for the weekend, on a quick break during a month long out-of-town business trip, and I wanted to make him a special dinner. This fit the bill perfectly! We especially loved the milk gravy - it tasted wonderful on the mashed potatoes that I served it with (along with some corn), and I dipped my chicken in it, for a delighful treat! I especially loved this recipe because, in the past, I have not been able to master fried chicken (it never seems to turn out just right), but this cooking method worked beautifully. I will probably always make my fried chicken this way! Thanks for a great recipe for comfort food at its best! :-)
Very good! I also used chicken breasts. The gravy was delish.... A welcome change from by baked chicken breasts.
This is comfort food at it's best! I don't fry foods too often but this is worth it! I used chicken breast. I didn't make the gravy this time, but plan to next time. Thanks dcmac for a southern favorite!
