My chicken didn't turn out well the first time I attempted to use the recipe as posted. I used chicken drumsticks, not breasts, and it took forever the inside of the chicken to cook while the outside coating became rubbery. So having been raised a good portion of my childhood in Kentucky I remembered that mamy people boiled the chicken first (not all the way cooked) before coating and frying. This allows for way less cooking time in the skillet and the for the coating to be crispy, not chewy. Also, a good way to get rid of that blood that comes from the bone while frying (if not using the boil method)...soak the chicken in ice and water with salt for about half an hour before cooking.

This was just okay, not as good as I thought it would be. I did read the submitter's review and use Tablespoons not teaspoons of garlic powder and I'm glad I did or it would have been incredibly plain.

I am Southern and I can fry some chicken, but this impressed me. I usually fry with just flour, salt and pepper, but I added the spices and the egg mixture. It was good. I didn't measure anything out, just threw the spices in. I added alot more garlic, I love it, and of course more salt amd pepper. I salted and peppered the chicken and the egg mixture. You cannot fry chicken in 15 minutes. I cooked on high for 5, then flipping, on medium, with lid on for 20. Nice and crispy. Served with baked potato and corn. Will make again.

Want the most tender, moist fried chicken? Try marinating the chicken for at least 4 hours (if not all day) in buttermilk. Out of this world - great to use buttermilk when soaking raw onions for onion rings too. In order to cut down on the actual frying time, I generally brown my chicken and then place it on a broiler rack and bake it for 45 minutes in a 375 oven. The broiler rack allows alot of the fat to drip off. Line the bottom with foil and spray the rack with Pam before placing chicken pieces on top, clean up is a breeze. I too like a bit of dill in my chicken coating and I use ordinary flour instead of bread crumbs. I also add a generous portion of Lawry's salt, but you can also use Lemon Pepper if you are watching your salt intake.

Just a quick note: This is my recipe and my original recipe called for tablespoons of garlic pwdr and AR edited it to teaspoons. I had mentioned this in an earlier review but the review was deleted ): Also, granulated garlic really brings out that garliky flavor! but, 'tis all to taste---play with it and see what works best for you! ~Tan~ PS Also wanted to say that I used Italian seasoned bread crumbs for the seasoned bread crumbs. This also makes really good chicken for Chicken Parmesan, which I do often. (:

Two words... OVEN FRY! Why not try to make this healthier and cut out some of the fat/cholesterol but not loose the wonderful fried taste. I soaked the chicken breasts in buttermilk for 2 hours and then I floured them, egged them and used the breadcrumb mixture last. I sprayed Pam on the breasts and I oven fried my chicken at 400 for about 25 minutes ( I hade 2 chicken breasts that were pounded thin) I cut mine into small pieces AFTER they were cooked and added it to a large garden salad.

I read this recipe's notation from the original submitter who added on 5/31/05 that the recipe was supposed to be in tablespoons, and not teaspoons for the garlic. I cooked it using TBL. and it was great. It was so flavorful and very crispy on the outside. I used cube steaks because I love chicken fried steak and it was way better than restaurant quality. Make sure to use up that leftover dry mix for the gravy. Yum!

De-freaking-licious! I am normally AGAINST frying any of my food, but had to try this one after everyone at The Quality Cook raved about it. I used lots of garlic, doubled the paprika and used Panko crumbs as opposed to regular breadcrumbs. Also, I seperated the flour from the Panko mixture (and seasoned both) then dredged the chicken in the flour, followed by the egg and finally the Panko crumbs. I lost very little - if any - of the breading during the frying process (a miracle from my perspective). Loved it - thanks much Tan!!!
