Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Pour chicken broth into a large mixing bowl.

  • Wash chicken pieces and pat dry. Place chicken pieces into the broth and let soak while preparing flour mixture.

  • Mix flour, garlic powder, onion powder, seasoned salt, lemon-pepper seasoning, salt, basil, oregano, and cayenne pepper together in a large, shallow dish until well blended.

  • Heat 2 inches oil in a deep saucepan over medium heat.

  • Remove one piece of chicken at a time from the broth and dredge in the flour mixture until evenly coated. Lower a few pieces of coated chicken carefully into the hot oil. Fry until golden brown and juices run clear, about 10 minutes per side. Transfer to a paper towel-lined plate to drain. Repeat with remaining chicken.
