I’ve never made fried chicken before trying this recipe. One, I’m quite afraid of using hot grease, and two, I never ever thought it would be something my husband would eat. In the Southern Plate cook book, my husband found quite a few recipes he wanted to try and one of them was a Cracker Fried Chicken Recipe. I was shocked that he wanted to try it.
I was shocked at how easy it was to fry chicken
I was shocked that they whole family liked it.
Plus they wanted to have it again! I love this simple fried chicken recipe. I got to beat the chicken with my hands
Covered it in eggs and then dipped it into the crackers
For a healthier option, bake the chicken instead of frying it. I fried it.
Cracker Fried Chicken Recipe:
1 lb chicken strips (breasts cut into strips will work too)|
2 packages of Saltine crackers or cracker of your choice
pinch of salt
Place your chicken strips in a sealed bag
Beat the chicken until it’s flat
Crack the eggs into a bowl, whisk the eggs and add a pinch of salt
Pour oil in a skillet 1/4 of an inch deep and then heat over medium heat
Dip each strip one at a time into the eggs then into the crackers
Make sure chicken is fully covered with crackers
Place cracker covered chicken in the hot oil
Cook until brown and then flip the chicken to make sure both sides are cooked
