  • 2 chicken breasts

  • 1.5 cups vegetable oil

  • Breading
  • 1/2 cup all purpose flour

  • 1/3 cup breadcrumbs

  • 1 tsp salt

  • 1/2 tsp paprika

  • 1/4 tsp cayenne pepper

  • 1/2 tsp black pepper

  • Marinade
  • 1 cup buttermilk

  • 1.5 tsp salt

  • 1 large egg


  • Marinade the chicken
  • Place the chicken breasts into a sealed gallon sized ziplock bag. Using a meat tenderizer (or rolling pin), pound it until its flattened to about 1/2 inch thick. Pat dry and set aside.
  • Whisk the marinade ingredients together, add to the chicken in a sealed bag or container. Let it sit for 1 to 2 hours or longer for better flavor. (If you don’t have time to let the chicken marinade you can skip that)
  • Once marinating is almost complete, if desired begin making mashed potatoes and gravy to go with the hot fried chicken!
  • Cooking
  • In a medium bowl, prepare the breading mix. Remove the chicken from the marinade, flip the chicken in the breading until completely covered, really pressing it on.
  • In a frying pan, add enough vegetable oil to cover the chicken halfway. Heat oil to about 350 degrees before adding the chicken in.
  • Place the chicken in carefully and cook about 5 minutes per side. Place on a plate lined with paper towels to absorb any access grease.
  • This is enjoyed best with mashed potatoes and brown gravy!
