Directions

  1. Heat oil in a deep-fryer or large saucepan to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. Combine crackers, garlic salt, and ranch dressing mix in a resealable plastic bag; squeeze out excess air and seal the bag. Finely crush crackers with a rolling pin or heavy skillet. Pour 1/3 the crumbs mixture into a large bowl.
  3. Pour flour into a bowl. Pour eggs into another bowl.
  4. Gently press chicken pieces into flour to coat and shake off excess flour. Dip into beaten egg and press into cracker crumbs. Place the breaded chicken pieces onto a plate while breading the rest.
  5. Working in batches, cook breaded chicken in hot oil, turning once, until golden brown, no longer pink in the center, and the juices run clear, about 5 to 7 minutes. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read at least 165 degrees F (74 degrees C).

Footnotes

  • Cook's Note:
  • For best results, reheat the earliest cooked pieces in the oil for a few seconds just before serving. This avoids serving cold chicken.
  • Oil that is too hot will cook the crumbs too quickly, making them nearly black before the chicken is cooked thoroughly. Cut a larger piece of chicken in half to verify it is fully cooked.
  • Nutrition:
  • The nutrition data for this recipe includes the full amount of the breading ingredients. The actual amount of the breading consumed will vary. We have determined the nutritional value of oil for frying based on a retention value of 10% after cooking. The exact amount will vary depending on cooking time and temperature, ingredient density, and the specific type of oil used.
