The BEST "Healthier" Fried Chicken
I started making this version of fried chicken recently and it is so good! Fried chicken is something I couldn't ever get just right and I think I have finally perfected my very own fried chicken recipe. The best part is it's healthier than your typical fried chicken and my kids gobble it up (and Isaiah isn't much of a meat eater).
1/3 c whole wheat flour
1/2 T Smoked Paprika
1/2 T Garlic Salt
1/2 T Mustard Seed Powder
1/2 t Cumin
1 T Brown Sugar
Mix ingredients together and spread on large plate. Gently toss chicken tenderloins or breasts (cut into strips) in the rub. This recipe should be enough for at least 6-7 tenderloins or 3-4 chicken breasts.
Heat a large saucepan to medium-high and melt about 3 T of coconut oil (olive oil works fine too). Place coated chicken in the pan and flip about every 3-5 or until chicken is cooked through and the crunch in brown. Don't over crowd the chicken.
