Sorry, Mom...

but I've found a new fried chicken recipe.

Southern Fried Chicken Strips
by Genise Krause from the Taste of Home magazine

1 egg
1/2 cup buttermilk
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 1/2 tsp garlic powder
1 1/2 tsp pepper
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp paprika
2 lbs (1kg) chicken tenderloins
2 Tbsp grated Parmesan cheese
*I also add just a tiny sprinkle of Cayenne pepper

In a shallow bowl, whisk the egg and buttermilk. In a separate shallow bowl, combine the flour and spices. Dip chicken in egg mixture, then flour mixture.

In an electric skillet, heat oil to 375F. Fry chicken a few pieces at a time for 2-3 minutes on each side or until no longer pink.( I do it in my big electric frypan and fry them all at once.) Drain on paper towels. Sprinkle with cheese. (I just realized it said parmesan cheese. I've never done that)

This is so yummy. Last night I made mashed potatoes using part buttermilk/part whole milk. And I made chicken gravy like Mom does. We ate it up and there was barely any left for Josh to take for lunch today.

Sounds yummy! We'll have to try that. We had baked chicken last night. Just recently Dad baked it with Egg and French onion coating.Usually I don't think of onion with chicken but it was good.
