Monday Meals

Today I am participating in Monday Meals over at A Love Worth Waiting For!  I love this idea because we get in a meal rut at our house sometimes.  This is the perfect solution!

This is my most favorite fried chicken ever.  I always request this for my birthday dinner because it is delicious!  It also happens to be very simple which is a plus for this busy momma.

Granny's Fried Chicken

Self Rising Flour
Salt and Pepper
Canola Oil
Your choice cut of chicken (we use tenders so they cook quickly but Granny used breasts)

Beat egg in a bowl big enough to fit the chicken
Mix four with salt and pepper on a plate
Dip chicken in egg
Dredge chicken in flour mixture

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.  Heat oil in an oven safe skillet and brown the chicken.  Once the chicken has started to brown put the skillet in the oven to continue cooking.

We usually make it with mashed potatoes and green beans or a salad!  It is so very yummy and perfectly crispy.  Baking it in the oven does not make it so greasy which is a plus.  I also love it because it is Granny's (Artie's Grandmother) recipe.  You must try it soon!
