This simple recipe is a revelation: It tastes as good as the old-school, supersavory chicken you'd get in a bucket.
8 (3-ounce) skinless, boneless chicken thighs
1 large egg, lightly beaten
1.5 ounces all-purpose flour (about 1/3 cup)
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt, divided
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon onion powder
1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1/2 teaspoon ground red pepper
1 1/2 tablespoons canola oil
1 1/2 tablespoons hot sauce
How to Make It
Combine chicken and egg in a shallow dish; toss to coat. Combine flour, 1/4 teaspoon salt, garlic powder, and next 3 ingredients (through red pepper) in a shallow dish; dredge chicken in flour mixture. Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add oil to pan; swirl to coat. Add chicken; cook 5 minutes on each side or until browned and done. Drain chicken on a plate lined with paper towels. Sprinkle with remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt; top with hot sauce.
