Egg Batter Fried Chicken

When I was in high school my mother taught me this recipe. She would season her chicken, dip it in egg batter then flour it. She would then place it in the frying pan and oh my goodness! The most delicious and crispy chicken would come out!

I made this for my family recently! It was a big hit!!

Egg Batter Fried Chicken

1 pack of split breast chicken or chicken with the skin on it

Season salt

Salt & pepper

Medium bowl of flour

4 eggs

1 bottle of vegetable oil (I know this is bad. That's why we don't eat it all the time)

Season your chicken they way you prefer it. I use season salt and I sprinkle that all over the chicken. I also sprinkle some salt and pepper all over the chicken. Once the chicken is seasoned I mix the four eggs in a bowl and dip the chicken in the egg batter.  Then I take the chicken and dip it into the bowl of flour.

I have my pot heated with the vegetable oil and then I just place the chicken in the hot vegetable oil to fry. It takes about 20-30 minutes. Comes out so beautiful and crispy!!

My egg batter fried chicken. Wonderful!!!
