Crispy chicken comes courtesy of my better half. I was in college and she was working toward her PhT, (putting hubby through) when it became part of her playbook. Time was a precious commodity and beyond taste, with only five ingredients it is quick and easy to prepare. Crispy chicken remained in our regular rotation for years, until it didn’t. That may sound odd, but we can’t put our finger on when. What I can say is that every now and then we get a hankering for it and it can’t be denied. Since her kitchen retirement, it has fallen on me to make this family favorite.
Over the years this recipe has become easier. Once upon a time, you had to slice the chicken breasts yourself, a messy and thankless task. Now, fresh pre-sliced chicken breast is available at the market. I was able to make this correctly the very first try and my wife pronounced it “pretty good”. In her lingo, that means what you and I would call “awesome”!
And just one more thing…
Who made up the saying “winner, winner, chicken dinner!
