Bite-sized pieces of chicken that are sure to be a family favorite. I love to serve it with homemade mashed potatoes and green beans.

Instructions Checklist
  • Mix flour, garlic powder, salt, and black pepper together in a bowl. Beat eggs and lemon juice together in a separate bowl.

  • Heat 1 1/2 to 2 inches of oil in a large pot over medium heat.

  • Dip the chicken pieces into the flour mixture, then the egg mixture, and again into the flour mixture.

  • Test the oil to make sure it is hot enough: a small amount of flour dropped in should sizzle. Place 10 pieces of chicken into the hot oil; cook until golden brown, about 8 minutes. Remove from the oil and drain on a paper towel lined plate and season with salt. Repeat with remaining chicken.

This turned out great! I do think the flour could use double the amount of seasoning but other than that I wouldn't change a thing. Read More

READ THIS BEFORE YOU MAKE IT: Like the others said, this needs a ton more of seasoning and salt. (I'd say at least 3 tablespoons salt, double the garlic powder) On top of that, 2 cups of flour is more than enough as there was a huge amount of it wasted at the end. Also I recommend 10+ minutes in the fryer to get that golden crusty goodness. Read More

Turned out perfect! This is an easy recipe and can be tweaked by adding more seasoning. Made Valentine snacks with these. Read More

Used the recipe as a guide and adjusted the flavours to what I had and like ( maple bacon rub, seasoning salt, garlic powder, paprika and black pepper) I adjusted the flour ratio to the chicken I had on hand. I subbed a couple dashes of Frank’s Red Hot instead of lemon with the egg mixture. My husband loved these. They turned out very tasty and a wonderful crispy batter. Read More

It would have been better, had I ate it once it was ready. Instead I took it to work for lunch, maybe it was made to eat asap Read More

To be honest, to me the original recipe tasted very plain and had no flavor. There was barely any salt/ pepper taste. So I customized the recipe, added more Salt, Black & Cayanne Pepper, Red Chilli Powder, some more Garlic Powder in the flour and added some more Lemon Juice in the egg. Then did the second batch, which tasted much better. Read More
