Yummy Fried Chicken

October 7, 2009 at 6:04 am 1 comment

Last nights dinner was one of those scrambled-together meals.  Leftover string bean salad (think potato or macaroni salad, only with green beans,) colorful vegetable pasta (because the little one has asked for pasta,) and a couple chicken breasts that were about to expire.  Mm, scrounging for food.

Anyway, I cooked the pasta and fried up the chicken real quick and dinner was done in 15-20 minutes!

Yummy Fried Chicken


  • Chicken breasts
  • Bran flakes cereal (or corn flakes, whatever.  I used bran because that’s what we have and I think it brought a bit extra flavor that corn flakes wouldn’t have)
  • Flour (1:2   flour:bran flakes)
  • 1 egg
  • Milk (about the same amount as the egg, maybe a drop less)
  • Oil to fry the chicken in (enough to coat the pan, then a bit more)
  • Seasonings (salt, pepper, Italian seasoning, whatever.)


  1. Cut the chicken into bite sized pieces (I do this only because it fries faster this way, imo.)  In one bowl mix the egg and milk together.  In a separate bowl crush the bran flakes and mix in flour and seasonings.  Coat pan for frying and pre-heat at a medium-high temperature.
  2. Dip chicken in egg mixture, then coat in bran flake mixture.  Fry.

Thats it!  Yummy and fast.  I’d have posted pics but my camera battery is apparently dead, and there aren’t any leftovers for when it’s done recharging- even after we were full everyone kept picking for any spare bran flakes that fell off!

Nom nom nom,

    Does the string bean salad have mayo? That sounds awful.
