Chicken Fried Chicken

Living in the South now, my hubby and I are enjoying all the new foods that are offered here. Sweet tea, BBQ, chicken fried chicken/steak, etc.

A few weeks ago, I was offered the opportunity to test out a meat tenderizer and my first thought was “I should try making chicken fried chicken” in my cast iron skillet. When I passed the idea along to my hubby, he was all on board and we both set out to make our homemade version!

The tenderizer was quite convenient, made our chicken breasts the perfect thickness, and it was quite easy to use!! Right now, they are offering a 15% discount to you if you use the code KRYLK4CT in your Amazon cart. Click here to check it out on Amazon!! Or click here to see it on their website along with several other BBQ products!!


We had the chicken ready to go in no time and the end flavor was amazing. We made a tasty white gravy to go on top of the chicken and mashed potatoes, and the entire meal was the perfect Southern comfort dish!




Fried Chicken

  • 4-6 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 1 1/2 cups flour
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp ground black¬†pepper
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 4 eggs
  • 1/3 cup water
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil


  • 1/2 cup flour
  • 2 cups evaporated milk
  • 4 cups milk
  • 1 1/2 tsp poultry seasoning
  • 1/2 tsp ground black pepper
  • Salt to taste



  1. Heat oil on medium high heat. I highly suggest a cast iron skillet for this recipe, but any skillet will work for this!!
  2. Pound each chicken breast lightly to tenderize and flatten.
  3. Combine the flour, salt, pepper, and garlic in a flat dish.
  4. In a separate dish, combine the eggs and water.
  5. Lightly coat each chicken breast in the flour mixture, then the egg mixture, and back into the flour mixture.
  6. Repeat process until all chicken is coated.
  7. Working in batches of two breasts each, place chicken into heated oil and fry for about 8 minutes, or until chicken is golden brown and juices run clear.
  8. Set cooked chicken aside on some paper towels to absorb any excess oil.
  9. To make gravy, using the same skillet with leftover drippings from chicken, add in the flour and stir until bubbly and brown.
  10. Add in remaining ingredients and whisk until smooth and combined.
  11. Allow to simmer until thickened!
  12. Pour gravy over chicken prior to serving and enjoy!!
