Type: Entrée Recipe
- 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
- 1/2 cup bread crumbs
- 1/2 cup panko bread crumbs – These are Asian-style bread crumbs
- 1/4 tsp poultry seasoning
- 1/4 tsp cayenne pepper
- 1/4 tsp freshly ground pepper
- 1 sprinkle garlic powder – or more, if you like.
- 10 pieces chicken
- 3/4 cup peanut oil
- 3/4 cup olive oil
- 1/4 cup butter
- Rinse under cool water and pat dry chicken with a paper towel.
- Combine flour, bread crumbs, spices together in a flat pan, and dredge chicken all over with the mixture.
- In a deep frying pan, heat peanut oil, olive oil and butter on medium high heat until the butter melts and reaches the point of fragrance, meaning you can smell the butter in the air.
- Note: If you have a peanut allergy, just increase olive oil, or use soy oil.
- Before placing your chicken into hot oil mixture, press flour mixture into the meat. Place 1/2 of your chicken pieces into the hot oil mixture without disturbing the flour coating.
- Fry chicken until golden brown – approximately 12 min. Make sure the chicken is cooked through, meaning the chicken juices run clear, not pink or red, by testing 1 piece to ensure they are cooked.
- Put the cooked chicken pieces on a cookie sheet lined with paper towels, uncovered, in the oven on ~ 300 degrees F to stay warm, while the 2nd batch is frying.
- Repeat frying process for rest of chicken pieces.
- Serve and Enjoy!
This is wonderful to serve with fresh corn-on-the-cob! We even included fresh, Ontario peaches with our meal – what a great dinner! This is what we ate just last night.
