    basically i was thinking today that its around a year since i was in texas which has in turn given me a craving for chicken fried chicken. does anyone have a good recipe?
    i'm going to the celtic v rapid vienna match on thursday night with my dad and one of my mates so i was thinking i could invite them both round to me and the girlfriends flat and cook some chicken for us all before the three of us dissapear to the football.
    any help would be appreciated

    Chicken Fried Chicken with Cream Gravy

    This is essentially Texas-style chicken fried steak, but it is made with chicken breasts. Be sure to make this with cream gravy.

    4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
    1 egg
    1/2 cup milk
    1 to 2 cups all-purpose flour
    cooking oil or melted Crisco
    1/2 teaspoon salt
    1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
    1/4 teaspoon paprika
    1/4 teaspoon white pepper
    1/8 teaspoon garlic powder
    1 teaspoon dried parsley flakes

    Beat together the egg and milk and set aside. Mix together all dry ingredients.

    Dredge the chicken breasts in the flour mixture, shaking off the excess. Then dip each piece in the egg/milk mixture, then back in the flour. (very messy fingers here.) Set chicken pieces aside on a piece of waxed paper.

    Heat the cooking oil in a large cast-iron or other heavy skillet over medium-high heat for a few minutes. Oil should be about a half-inch deep in the pan. Check the temperature with a drop of water; if it pops and spits back at you, it's ready.

    With a long-handled fork or tongs, carefully place each chicken breast into the hot oil. Protect yourself (and your kitchen) from the popping grease that results. Fry chicken breasts on both sides, turning once, until golden brown. Reduce heat to low, cover and cook 15 to 18 minutes until chicken pieces are done through. Drain on paper towels.

    Cream Gravy
    After the chicken is removed from the pan, pour off all but about 2 tablespoons of oil, keeping as many as possible of the browned bits in the pan. Heat the oil over medium heat until hot.

    Sprinkle 3 tablespoons flour (use the left-over flour from the chicken fried chicken recipe (waste not -- want not) in the hot oil. Stir with a wooden spoon, quickly, to brown the flour.

    Gradually stir in 3/4 cup milk and 3/4 cup water, mixed together, stirring constantly with the wooden spoon and mashing out any lumps. Lower heat, and gravy will begin to thicken. Continue cooking and stirring a few minutes until gravy reaches desired consistency. Check seasonings and add more salt and pepper according to your taste.

    Personally I like using boneless thighs instead of breasts.

    You must have this.

    Wilted salad.

    In a large bowl shred by hand a head of Read leaf lettuce.
    Chop several green onions and radishes and add them to the bowl.
    Fry several strips of bacon till very crispy and crumble over the salad. Then pour the hot bacon grease over it all. Add salt and pepper to taste.

    Store in fridge. This also makes a great sandwich. :)

    The key to having a real good crust on the fried chicken is to use buttermilk for your batter instead of regular milk. Also double-dip. Cover the chicken in flour, dip it into the buttermilk/egg mixture, then coat it in flour again before putting it in the skillet.

    Mmmm, I'm a big wilted lettuce fan. My grandmother used to make it all the time. However, I would leave out the radishes.

    Sounds good but can you add some cayenne pepper in, I like my fried chicken a bit on the spicy side. :laugh2:

    If you drain off all but a tablespoon or so of the bacon drippings, then add flavored vinegar to the pan to deglaze it, this balances out the dressing much nicer.

    cheers for the recipes. made the chicken and the salad, using the vinegar tip, along with a bowl of creamed corn. unfortunately it was probably the highlight of the night (well barring the pub before the game which had a live band) as the football finished 1-1 meaning that we are now going to struggle to get through the group stages so will probably be out of europe before christmas.
