  1. Place the flour, bread crumbs, salt, lemon pepper, seasoned salt, and paprika into a large resealable plastic zipper bag, and stir the mixture to thoroughly combine.
  2. Whisk the eggs and milk together in a large shallow bowl. Rinse off the chicken pieces, and place 2 or 3 pieces at a time into the plastic bag. Seal the bag, shake several times to thoroughly coat the chicken with seasoned flour mixture, and dip into the egg mixture. Place the chicken pieces back into the flour, shake to coat, and dip; repeat one more time, giving each chicken piece 2 dips in egg mixture and 3 coatings of seasoned flour.
  3. Heat oil in a large skillet with deep sides until the oil shimmers; gently add the chicken in batches, either all drumsticks or all thighs. Cover the skillet, and fry until the juices run clear and the coating is beginning to brown, 10 to 15 minutes; uncover and cook the chicken until the coating is golden brown, another 5 to 10 minutes.


  • Cook's Notes

Didn't like the taste. Plus decided to deep fry some drumsticks with this recipe and was awful!

the taste was average, not wonderful but not bad... had a problem with using the bag to coat the chicken and it made a big mess and was time consuming.

I guess I did not get the temp right on the oil because I cooked it for way longer then told and my thighs were still pink inside. Also when I put it on a higher temp to get it cooking it burne...

Was way to salty for me. The mixture in the bag clumped up & I had to finish off in a bowl. Will not be making again.

This recipe has promise, but needs a little help. First, I’d cut back on the salt. The other difficulty I had was that the breading was pretty dark by the time the chicken legs had cooked throug...

I did like the receipe but it was a lot longer then I thought it would be I used drumsticks. I did not use salt I used chicken seasonion instead of seasoned salt just to cut down on salt.
