Ingredients

  • Soybean or canola oil, for frying
    Oil, Vinegar, Salad Dressing
  • 3 large eggs
    Milk, Eggs, Other Dairy
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
    Baking
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
    Spices and Seasonings
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper
    Spices and Seasonings
  • 1 whole chicken (about 4 pounds), cut into 8 pieces
    Meat
  • 2 cups whole milk
    Milk, Eggs, Other Dairy

Steps

  • In a bowl or resealable plastic bag, season the chicken with 1 tablespoon salt, 1/2 teaspoon pepper and the garlic powder. Cover or seal and refrigerate overnight or up to 24 hours.
  • Pour 1/2 to 1 inch of oil into a deep 12-inch cast-iron skillet and heat until a pinch of flour sizzles upon contact (about 360 degrees F). Set a wire rack on top of a rimmed baking sheet and set aside. In a bowl, whisk together the milk and eggs.
  • Place the flour in a separate bowl. Dip the chicken in the egg wash, drain off the excess, then dredge in the flour, shaking off the excess.
  • Working in batches, place the chicken skin-side down in the skillet and fry for 3 minutes without moving. Continue to fry, turning the chicken every 1 to 2 minutes to ensure even browning and cooking, until the chicken is cooked through, 11 to 15 minutes.
  • Drain on the rack and serve hot, warm or at room temperature.
