Eggnog Fried Chicken
"I had some extra eggnog and was trying to figure out what to do with it. I decided to use it for chicken and everyone was a little skeptical, but after tasting it they all thought it was amazing. You can taste the eggnog, but it's subtle. I was cooking for some people who disliked eggnog and they still loved this recipe!"

Original recipe yields 10 servings (10 pieces)
- Place chicken in resealable plastic bag, coat with eggnog, and refrigerate, 1 to 3 hours.
- Mix together panko, flour, garlic, chicken bouillon, baking soda, garlic salt, Italian seasoning, dried thyme, paprika, ground cinnamon, and ground nutmeg in a bowl for the breading mixture.
- Heat oil in a deep-fryer or large saucepan to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
- Remove chicken from eggnog mixture and gently press each piece into breading mixture to coat, shaking off excess. Discard the eggnog.
- Fry chicken until golden brown, about 3 to 5 minutes. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read at least 165 degrees F (74 degrees C).
- Place fried chicken on cooling racks to drain over a baking sheet.
- Cook's Notes:
- If you don't have enough oil to cover the chicken, you can flip the chicken half way through.
- You can use the full chicken thigh, or cut it in half. I prefer to cut them in half because they are easier to fry and I just like the smaller pieces.

I too used Southern Comfort laced egg nog. I left out the cinnamon and nutmeg. Was skeptical about all the different flavors going on, plus the Southern Comfort egg nog added the unique flavor...
