This is an excellent choice if you're searching for a basic and great tasting fried chicken recipe for chicken breasts. 

Be sure to reduce the cooking time if you use boneless chicken breasts.


  • 6 chicken breast halves
  • salt and pepper
  • vegetable oil
  • 1 cup flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder


Rinse chicken breasts and pat dry; sprinkle all over with salt and pepper. Drain well. In plastic bag, combine flour, salt, pepper, and baking powder. Shake chicken the flour mixture until well-coated. Refrigerate for 2 to 4 hours. Put 1 1/2 inches of vegetable oil in a deep skillet; heat to medium high, or about 370°. Place chicken in hot oil. When chicken pieces are hot and browning well, lower heat to medium low. Continue cooking for 8 to 12 minutes on each side or until well-browned and juices run clear when pierced with a fork.

Really good, Member shawneemom

I marinated my chicken breasts in Italian dressing and also added a little garlic powder to the flour mix. My family loved them!
