Another new recipe!
This was great and will definitely be made again! I made it with 5 lbs of chicken breasts…made a lot and will be several meals for our family.
I have not tried it but I’m sure these would freeze well too and I’m all for stocking the freezer for quick and easy future meals!
5 lbs. chicken breasts, pounded down and cut into pieces
Place in a 9 x 13 pan and pour about 2 cups buttermilk over chicken. Place in refrigerator overnight. (or for several hours)
Coating for chicken:
3 cups flour
3 tsp. garlic salt/powder (optional) I did not have on hand but want to use next time!
3 tsp. pepper
2 tsp. salt
2 tsp. paprika or cayenne pepper (anything red’ll do! Ha!)
6 tbsp. grated parmesan cheese…(that’s like a half cup)
Mix coating together in a shallow pan. I used my square pyrex.
Add oil for frying in skillet. Heat to 350 degrees. Coat chicken and fry chicken pieces 3-5 minutes per side.
5 lbs was a lot so I had to do this in batches but as long as I was going to the work of “raw” chicken and frying I just wanted to have at it and get’r done.
Big family favorite!
Just ate them with cole slaw and potato salad and fresh fruit ~ wonderful picnic style dinner.
I’m also thinking this chicken would be great for chicken sandwiches, dipped in sweet n sour sauce, mandarin chicken, chicken parmesan…
