This is one of our favorite recipes to take along on a picnic. We like to eat the chicken cold, along with a salad and watermelon. It's a real treat!

  • 1/2 teaspoon poultry seasoning
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/2 cup 2% milk
  • 1 broiler/fryer chicken (3 to 3-1/2 pounds), cut up
  • Oil for frying


  1. In a resealable container, combine the flour and seasonings. In a shallow bowl, beat egg and milk. Dip chicken pieces into egg mixture, then add to container, a few pieces at a time, and shake to coat.
  2. In a large skillet or Dutch oven, heat 1/4 in. of oil to 375°. Fry chicken, a few pieces at a time, 7-10 minutes on each side or until chicken is golden brown and juices run clear. Drain on paper towels.
