One of my favorites to cook is fried chicken. I never used to like frying chicken until I found the perfect recipe.
About a year ago I saw a Food Network show (sorry I can’t remember which one) where he went to several restaurants in search of the best fried chicken. One such place had two old women frying chicken. I took note and thus began my fried chicken cooking.
Using only a big cast iron skillet, I heat the oil with one vidilla onion cut up in it. This allows the onions to carmalize and sweeten the oil. Battering the chicken with a milk/egg wash then rolled in flour and cracker crumbs I fry them. Only turning them once. So allow them to cook for a while before flipping.
Tonight I used boneless chicken tenders which fry up faster than a cut up chicken. After removing the chicken and onions (which are delicious) I use the oil for making gravy.
So if you find frying chicken a fate worse than death, give this recipe a try. It really isn’t as bad as it seems…just saying!
