Preparation: 1 hour 30 minutes Life Experience Recipe
Serves 4 to 6 persons
  • 5 boned, skinned whole chicken breasts or your favorite chicken pieces
  • 2 teaspoons ground black pepper
  • 2 teaspoons onion powder
  • 1 teaspoon thyme
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 1 teaspoon crushed basil leaves
  • 1 teaspoon parsley flakes
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • Cooking oil
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons seasoned salt
  • 2 teaspoons garlic powder
  • 1 tablespoon chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon crushed tarragon leaves
  • 1 teaspoon sage
  • 1 tablespoon Greek spice combination
  • 1 egg
  1. Trim fat from chicken, wash and pat dry with paper towels. Shake in a bag with 1/4 cup plain flour.
  2. Add egg to milk and whip. Set aside.
  3. Place flour and spices in a large plastic bag. Close top and shake to mix all ingredients.
  4. Dip chicken piece in egg and milk mixture. Drain excess and place and place on a rack for a few minutes.
  5. Working with a few pieces at a time, place chicken in bag with flour and spices. Close top and shake to coat evenly. Remove chicken from bag, shake off excess flour mixture and place on clean, dry rack. Allow to air dry for about 20 minutes.
  6. Heat skillet with 1/2 inch cooking oil to 365°F (remember where the control knob is set). Carefully place chicken pieces in hot oil (tongs are a handy tool). While placing the chicken in the pan, turn the heat up full and then return to the 365°F knob setting when you cover the chicken.
  7. Cover and cook over medium-high heat (watch for a nice rolling sizzle) until nice and brown on bottom. Turn with tongs and continue cooking uncovered until nice and brown. If in doubt, check for an internal temperature of 170° for white meat, 180° for dark meat, with a thermometer. Remove from pan and place on a rack to drain.
