Italian Fried Chicken

Looking for an easy weeknight chicken recipe that has lots of flavor....this is it.  A touch of Italian spices with an easy coating, these chicken breasts fry up with a crispy shell.





Italian Fried Chicken

2-3 chicken breasts, pounded to an even flat size between 1/4 & 1/2" thick

In a large zippered plastic bag mix together ~


1/3 cup milk
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp sea salt
1/4 tsp freshly ground pepper
1/2 tsp oregano
1/2 tsp paprika
2-3 dashes hot sauce

Add the flattened chicken breasts to the bag and let marinade for 30 minutes.

On a dinner plate, mix together the following ~

3/4 cup flour
1/2 tsp sea salt
1/4 tsp freshly ground pepper

Heat a large skillet with 2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil.  When hot, remove chicken breasts one by one from the bag and dredge both sides in the flour mixture before placing in the hot skillet.  Cook both sides until crispy and the internal temperature is 165°.
