Chicken Fried Chicken

chicken fried chickenI’m pretty sure you know what Chicken Fried Steak is, although I’ve always wondered why it bears such a name.  For those who’ve never heard of Chicken Fried Steak it’s basically a beef steak that’s been dipped in batter then fried.  Sort of like fried chicken, I guess that’s where it gets its name.  It’s usually smothered in gravy and served with mashed potatoes.  Really it’s diner food, you know the place that serves up grease laden food.  Anyway since I’m not a big fan of this dish I decided I should make it with chicken and call it Chicken Fried Chicken!

I know the name Chicken Fried Chicken sounds redundant, why not just call it fried c.icken.  Well that’s because when we think of fried chicken we think fried and battered drumsticks and other chicken parts cooked with the bone.  My Chicken Fried Chicken uses boneless skinless chicken thighs so it sort of looks like the ever baffling Chicken Fried Steak.

Like its beef counter part, Chicken Fried Chicken is served with gravy and a starch and veggie.  It’s actually really good.  My family loves it!

So here’s my recipe for Chicken Fried Chicken.

Ingredients:

8 Boneless Skinless Chicken Thighs

1 1/2 Cups All  Purpose Flour

1 Cup Italian Seasoned Bread Crumbs

1 Tbl. Garlic Powder

1 Tbl. Salt

1/2 Tbl.  Ground Black Pepper

1  Tsp. Oregano

1 Egg

1/2 Cup Milk

Oil  for frying

Directions:

Rinse chicken thighs and pat dry with paper towel

Pound chicken thighs until they are about 3/4″ thick

Mix together dry ingredients in a bowl or dish

In a separate bowl whisk together egg and milk

Heat oil in a deep fryer or large frying pan to 350°

Dip chicken into egg and milk mixture, shake off excess liquid

Dredge chicken in the dry ingredients until it’s evenly coated

Fry chicken in hot oil about 5 minutes per side or until internal temperature is at least 165°

Place cooked chicken on plate covered with paper towels to drain oil

Serve with chicken gravy
