Italian Fried Chicken
Yield: 8 pieces Prep 15 mins Cook 22 mins


  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup seasoned bread crumbs
  • 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1 teaspoon garlic salt
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tablespoons milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 broiler-fryer chicken (about 3-1/2 pounds), cut into 8 pieces
  • 2 cups peanut oil

Make It

1. In a shallow dish, whisk together flour, bread crumbs, Parmesan and garlic salt. In a medium-size bowl, whisk together eggs, milk and salt.

2. Dip each piece of chicken into the egg mixture, shaking off excess. Roll in flour mixture and place on a baking sheet fitted with wire rack. Refrigerate while heating oil.

3. Place oil in a large lidded heavy-bottom skillet. Heat oil to 365 degrees F over medium-high heat. Add chicken, skin-side down. Fry, covered, about 22 minutes, turning every 4 minutes, or until internal temperature registers 170 degrees F on an instant-read thermometer. Transfer chicken to paper towels.
