Sooo much flavor!!! We couldn't get enough. Going to use chicken tenders next time so I don't have to beat the chicken and can make more pieces at once.
My whole family loved them and kids asked why I had never made them before! I made sweet potato biscuits as well and drizzled honey over the chicken and biscuits.
I prepared flour mixture as written, but ended up using half of the flour mixture called for. I dredged in egg mixture once, and it was plenty of batter. I only used 5 eggs and still had egg mixture left.
Definitely will make this again, but will prepare less flour and egg. I would make more often, except that frying is just so messy!
I cut this recipe in half and there was more than enough marinade and egg mixture for more chicken. The flavor was very nice although I did have some trouble with the batter / coating coming off while frying. I used some chicken strips I had on hand and did not pound them flat. Served with mashed potatoes, chicken gravy and steamed carrots.
I made these with chicken strips.....
Delicious! and Moist!
Served potatoes on the side.
Family loved this chicken! I used chicken tenders, and they came out really great. Some people may have issue with the batter staying on, but I've found that if you let the chicken rest for a few minutes with the batter on, it will stick much better. I didn't use a whole quart of buttermilk, I just eyeballed how much I would need to cover the tenders in a freezer bag, and then just put all the ingredients right into the bag, no need to dirty a bowl! After letting the chicken marinade (I so far have only done it for a few hours), I just ran my fingers down the tender to get most of the buttermilk off, and then it was straight into the flour, which I seasoned with garlic salt, onion salt, pepper, and some chili powder. Then dipped into the egg, and into the seasoned flour where i really pressed the bread crumbs into the chicken. I flipped the chicken, really pressed it again, and then set it aside to rest for a few. Everyone loved them! I served them with the Country Sausage Gravy recipe and people went nuts!
This was just lovely. My first time making country fried chicken so a lot of it was new to me. I was not prepared for how big smashed chicken would get.

Pile it into a tomato half, load it into a wrap, or spread it on bread. Chicken salad does it all.
Broccoli salad makes a great side dish or a light main dish on a warm night.
