Chicken Fried Chicken

salt, pepper
Cayenne pepper
Granulated garlic
boneless chicken breasts sliced thin
vegetable oil blended with olive oil or use canola oil
Buttermilk or Evaporated milk

Optional herbs to use: 1 teaspoon each, rosemary, oregano, basil, parsley for Italian flavored coating.
Large plastic zip lock bag

Place around 2 cups flour in the bag, add salt, pepper to taste, 2 teaspoons granulated garlic, 
1 teaspoon paprika add the optional herbs and cayenne if using. Shake the bag.

Place the chicken in the 2 cups buttermilk or evaporated milk. Soak around 30 minutes. Place each piece of chicken in the flour mixture and shake to coat. Dip again in the milk and shake in the flour. 

Flour Coating Tip: (chicken is dipped in milk and into flour mixture alternating twice). Let rest around 10 minutes this will keep the batter on the chicken and will not fall off when frying. 

In a large fry pan heat oil on high then lower to medium when hot.

Fry the dipped chicken fillets in oil (around 3 minutes on each side depending on thickness) until they're getting a nicely browned coating.

Make the Gravy:
3 tablespoons butter or
1 lb pork sausage loose
3 tablespoons bacon grease
1/4 cup flour
3 cups milk
salt and pepper to taste
Brown pork, use drippings of choice, add the flour and stir. Keep stirring until it thicken around 15 minutes.
Place Chicken on the plate. Pour hot gravy over it, there you have it Southern Style Chicken Fried Chicken.

Buttermilk Tip:  If you don't have any buttermilk, add 1 tablespoon white vinegar or lemon juice per 1 cup milk to substitute.
