Who doesn’t love fried chicken? Our recipe this month was a fried/baked chicken. Since there are only two of us at home these days, I opted to not bake, and did a total fry job. (Fewer pans to clean up!)
I adjusted the recipe for the two of us, and instead of putting the seasonings in the flour, I put them directly on the chicken. So garlic powder, salt, pepper and paprika, followed by the double dip in Tracy’s recipe. I have always double dipped my chicken and I think it really makes a difference!
Since I kept mine in the electric skillet, I did 10 minutes then flipped it; turned the heat down to 350 and covered it for 15-20 minutes; flipped it back, uncovered it and turned it back up to 375. When I have a full pan, I do 400-350-400, but it isn’t necessary with just 2-3 pieces in that skillet.
The recipe is a keeper, I like the addition of paprika and garlic. Next time I’m going to add thyme as well. That’s in my normal seasoning for chicken, but I was out so went “as written!”
Thanks Tracy for the great prompt. I am excited to see what others did with this great basic recipe!
