Better Fried Chicken



Simply delicious fried chicken using, of all things, cream of chicken soup! The other key ingredient is cornstarch. The end result will surprise you. It will be perfect - crispy on the outside, juicy on the inside, and loaded with mouthwatering flavor. This chicken will definitely be requested on a regular basis by family and friends!

Ingredients
4 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves
1 (10.75 ounce) can condensed cream of chicken soup
1 egg
seasoning salt to taste
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 cup cornstarch
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon paprika
salt and pepper to taste
oil for frying


Directions
In a shallow dish or bowl combine the soup, egg and seasoning salt (be careful, as soup is already salted); mix together. Dip chicken in mixture and turn to coat completely. Set aside.
In a bowl mix together the flour, cornstarch, garlic powder, paprika, salt and pepper. One at a time, place chicken pieces in bowl, coat on both sides. Add more flour and/or cornstarch as necessary, but add them in equal parts (there should be an equal amount of each in the mixture).
Place coated chicken on a platter and allow to sit until it becomes doughy (this is critical, to ensure crispiness when fried). Heat oil in a deep skillet over medium heat; be sure to use enough oil to cover chicken pieces. Once chicken is doughy, test oil by dropping a piece of the 'dough' into it; the oil is ready when it starts to fry immediately.
Fry chicken pieces in oil for about 7 to 10 minutes each, or until cooked through and juices run clear. Drain on paper towels and serve.
