Butter fried chicken is very simple to make. It tastes as well as smells so great. The texture of outer layer is crispy and the inner part is juicy and tender. Try it out, you will love it..
Step 1: Ingredients
- 1/3 cup unsalted butter
- 1 lb chicken
- 1 cup all purpose flour
- 1/4 cup breadcrumbs
- 1/2 tsp oregano
- 1 tsp black pepper powder
- 1/2 tsp paprika
- 3 garlic cloves
- 2 eggs
- 1 tsp salt, divided
Step 2: Marinade chicken
Take chicken in mixing bowl. Add eggs, grated garlic, paprika, salt and pepper. Mix all well and marinade it for 30 minutes.
Step 3: Make dry mixture
Take a bowl. Add flour, bread crumbs, oregano and salt. Mix them well until all incorporated.
Note: Instead of adding breadcrumbs and oregano separately, you can also use Italian seasoned breadcrumbs.
Step 4: Dredge chicken in dry mixture
Take a chicken piece, dredge it in the flour mixture, then dip it in the egg mixture. Now again coat it well in the flour mixture. Keep the flour coated chicken in separate plate.
Repeat the same for rest of the chicken pieces.
Step 5: Shallow fry the chicken
Melt butter in large skillet over medium flame.
Shallow fry the chicken in all sides, until it cooked well and the outer layer turned to golden brown color. ( it took 15 minutes for me to fry. Keep an eye on it, do not burnt it)
Remove excess oil using paper towel.
Note: While frying the chicken, cook it in medium flame or else the outer layer would burn easily before the chicken get cooked well.
Done!! Serve immediately with your choice of sauce or mayo.
