Rich's Fried Chicken (or pork)

Thursday, October 14, 2010

This makes a great dinner and the leftovers make delicious breakfast sandwiches. A few weeks ago Rich (Anne's husband) was staying over after a long day of packing. I was exhausted but gave him run of the kitchen to make whatever he wanted. The result was a delicious fried chicken. Jordan used the leftoveres the next day for a breakfast sandwich and has promised to stop his frequent trips to chic-fila for breakfast if I make this every week. So -- here is the much anticipated recipe. I'll post photos next week as well as the homemade biscuit recipe I use :)

4 Chicken breasts/thighs/pork loins - TENDERIZED
1 egg
1/3 cup buttermilk or heavy whipping cream
1/2 cup of bread crumbs - you may need more depending on absorption of meat to breading
Salt to taste
Black Pepper to taste
*other seasonings can be added for different flavors to the preference of the dish (for example red pepper flakes, cumin, rosemary, chili powder, curry, etc)
1/2 cup or more of frying oil - vegetable oil, sunflower oil, canola oil - DO NOT USE OLIVE OIL

~Mix egg and milk and beat together
~Mix together bread crumbs and desired seasonings
~Begin Heating oil, med to high heat for frying
~Place meat in egg/milk mixture for 2-3 minutes to get it slimy
~Take meat out and coat meat in bread crumb mixture to have a even breaded coating on meat
~When oil reaches frying temperature - check by taking a pinch of bread crumb mixture and putting it in oil to see if it sizzles
~Apply meat with breading to frying oil and cook meat entirely through - note the breading may darken faster than meat cooks, so use medium heat at first and flip meat consistently, cut meat in the center to check when done or use a meat thermometer to check internal temperature to make sure it is done.
