This was my first time making fried chicken. BF and I both give this 4.5 stars - it was really good and relatively easy. I didn't have a whole cut up chicken, so I used chicken breasts. Also, only had 1c of veg oil, so had to add 1c of canola (2c total) - worked fine. Fried in my cast iron skillet. I've read before to only turn your chicken once while frying, so I made sure to brown it completely on the first side before flipping. I did set aside my 2T of the flour mix before coating the chicken though and then spooned out 2T of the frying oil as the second batch was finishing, made the gravy in a separate skillet just to get it done sooner. Had a little trouble getting it to thicken all the way, might cut the milk a little next time. A tiny bit of cornstarch dissolved in cold water (1T ea.) did the trick. Good flavor. Served with mashed potatoes and a veggie. Great, traditional home cooked meal. A definite keeper for us - thanks!
