At first, I was planning on making chicken tenders or strips, but then I realized that the meat would go farther in smaller pieces...and I had an interesting idea with what to do with leftovers (which I will try to post later in the week. The recipe calls for 2 pounds of meat, but in my house that means I either halve the recipe or make planned leftovers. I don't think we ever eat more than a pound of meat for one family meal!
1/2 cup finely ground whole wheat flour (stone ground will not work in this recipe)
1 tsp salt
1 tsp paprika
1/4 tsp onion powder
1/4 tsp black pepper
2 lbs chicken, cut to desired size
vegetable oil for frying
Mix flour, salt, paprika, onion powder, and pepper in a plastic baggy. Add a few little pieces of chicken at a time, close bag, and shake to coat chicken. Set coated pieces aside until they are all coated.
Heat oil. 1/4 inch deep, in a large skillet. Cook chicken until light brown, anywhere from 5 to 15 minutes depending on size of pieces. Turn as needed to make sure they are evenly cooked. Remove from heat and drain on paper towel before serving.
