  • Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium heat until a drop of water evaporates immediately. Dip one piece of chicken at a time into the milk, and then place in the bag with the coating. Shake until fully coated. Place in the frying pan, and continue with remaining chicken.

  • Cook until the edges are browned, then flip and cook until browned on the other side. If some chicken is done sooner, keep on a paper towel lined plate in a warm oven, so that the chicken is all still warm at serving time.

I tried this recipe and I thought it was pretty good but dry. I mixed the flour with the parmasean cheese and the spices because the recipe directions doesn't tell you what to do with the flour. After fixing the chicken I think that you should probably dredge the chicken in the flour and then in the milk and then in the bag with the spices. Read More

This recipe did not turn out at all like a good fried chicken. the batter hardly stuck to the chicken at all and it was basically just chicken tenders with no batter. the batter also tasted like straight parmesan cheese. Read More

I tried this recipe very helpful but I used 2 eggs scrambled mixed with a little seasoning salt in place of the milk. It helps the mixture turn into a very crunchy flavorful skin. Also the salt should be at least 1 tsp to give a good southern flavor. Read More

My son used to say that I cooked the best fried chicken but I think this recipe is better. I think it's the parmesan cheese that makes it so delicious. Read More

This was the best recipe where the crust actually stayed on the chicken legs. Panko bread crumbs are the best. Did not add the salt. Next time (and there will be one) will up the garlic and onion powders. Maybe even add some red pepper flakes. Read More
