A mix of cornmeal and breadcrumbs gives this fried chicken recipe a crisp bite while keeping the inside of the meat juicy. This crispy coating is also terrific on skinned and boned chicken thighs or pork chops.

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup self-rising cornmeal mix
  • 1/2 cup seasoned fine dry breadcrumbs
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 4 skinned and boned chicken breasts
  • 1 large egg, beaten
  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil

How to Make It

  1. Combine first 3 ingredients in a shallow dish. Dip chicken in egg, and dredge in cornmeal mixture.

  2. Cook chicken in hot oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat 3 to 5 minutes on each side or until done.
