Quick Fried Chicken is a recipe I consider an Ultimate Win. And as a busy working mom I need as many of those as I can get! I have tried many chicken recipes, and this will forever be in my top 5. This is what I remember eating at both of my grandmothers’ houses growing up. I hope you enjoy this!
- Chicken tenderloins
- Salt & pepper to taste
- ½ cup flour
- 2 eggs, whisked
- ½ teaspoon garlic powder
- 1 cup Panko bread crumbs
- ¾ cup Parmesan
- 6 tablespoons butter
- 4 – 6 tablespoons vegetable oil
Pound chicken with meat tenderizer. Season both sides with salt and pepper. Set up coating trays – one with flour, one with eggs, and one with Panko and Parmesan. Dredge chicken in that order. Heat butter and oil in cast iron skillet over medium-high heat. Fry chicken in batches. Do not overlap chicken pieces. Fry 3-4 minutes each side and set on plate with paper towel to absorb excess grease.
