Southern Friend Chicken Recipe Ingredients
- 4 lbs chicken
- 2 teaspoons black pepper
- 2 eggs
- 3 cups vegetable oil
- 1 ½ cups milk
- 2 ½ cups all purpose flour
- 2 tablespoons salt plus extra
Cut the chicken into pieces and rinse them.
Pat the chicken dry and set it to one side.
Whisk the eggs into the milk until the mixture is well combined.
Mix the flour, salt and pepper in a big bag.
Dip the chicken into the egg and milk mixture and let the excess drip off.
Put some of the chicken pieces in with the flour mixture and shake it to coat.
Repeat with the rest of the chicken until every piece is covered in the flour mixture.
Heat the vegetable oil to 350 degrees F in a heavy skillet, and then fry a few pieces of chicken at a time until cooked through and golden brown.
This will take about 10 minutes per side.
Bear in mind that chicken breasts tend to cook faster than other cuts of chicken.
When the juices run clear from the chicken it is done.
Drain off any excess oil on paper towels, sprinkle a little salt over the chicken and serve hot...enjoy it !
