Chicken Fried Chicken

This is a recipe that I found from  I have slightly adapted it to add a little more flavor.  The chicken turns out very tender.  It doesn't have a gravy, so that saves a little on calories!  Here's the recipe:

30 saltine crackers
2 T. flour
2 T. dry potato flakes
1 t. seasoned salt
1/2 t. pepper
a sprinkle of garlic powder & onion powder, to taste
1 egg
1/4 c. vegetable oil
6 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves

Place the crackers in a large resealable bag; seal bag & crush crackers until they are coarse crumbs.  Add flour, potato flakes, seasones salt, pepper & garlic & onion powder to bag & mix well.

Beat egg in a shallow dish.  Heat oik in a large skillet over medium high heat.

One at a time, dredge chicken pieces in egg, then place in bag with crumbs & shake to coat.

Reduce heat to medium & cook chicken in skillet for 15-20 minutes, turning frequently, until golden brown & juices run clear.

NOTE:  If you want, you can pound the chicken breasts until they are thin & then they will cook more quickly. Sometimes, if I have very thick breasts, I will butterfly them & then get two from one breast.  Then I only need 3 chicken breasts for this recipe.   Put them inside a resealable bag & pound.  I use a large, rubber mallet from the hardware store.   This is quick, easy & not messy!!
