Favorite Fried Chicken

Total Time

Prep: 10 min. Cook: 25 min.


2 servings

"This is one of our favorites-for Sunday dinner or for taking along on a picnic," shares Rebekah Miller of Rocky Mount, Virginia. "Served hot or cold, it's a real treat."


  • 1/3 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon garlic salt
  • 1 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/4 teaspoon poultry seasoning
  • 1 egg, lightly beaten
  • 1/4 cup 2% milk
  • 2 chicken thighs (6 ounces each)
  • 2 chicken drumsticks (4 ounces each)
  • 1/3 cup canola oil


  1. In a large resealable plastic bag, combine the first five ingredients. In a shallow bowl, beat the egg and milk. Add chicken to bag, a few pieces at a time, and shake to coat. Dip into egg mixture, then return to flour mixture and shake again. Remove from bag and let stand for 5 minutes.
  2. Fry chicken in oil until golden brown on all sides. Reduce heat to medium and cook about 15 minutes or until a thermometer reads 180°.
