Creole Fried Chicken
The recipe for this creamy pan-fried chicken was given to me by my husband's grandmother. I make it at least twice a month—much to the delight of my family!
Total TimePrep/Total Time: 30 min.
- 1 cup all-purpose flour
- 2 teaspoons salt
- 1-1/2 teaspoons Creole seasoning
- 1/2 teaspoon pepper
- 1 broiler/fryer chicken (3-1/2 to 4 pounds), cut up
- 3 tablespoons vegetable oil
- 2 cups water
- In a shallow bowl or large resealable plastic bag, combine dry ingredients. Dredge chicken. Heat oil in a large skillet, fry chicken, a few pieces at a time, until brown on all sides. Add water; bring to a boil. Reduce heat; cover and simmer for 4-5 minutes or until juices run clear. Thicken gravy if desired.
Editor's NoteThe following spices may be substituted for 1 teaspoon Creole seasoning: 1/4 teaspoon each salt, garlic powder and paprika; and a pinch each of dried thyme, ground cumin and cayenne pepper.
