Maryland Fried Chicken

A recipe for fried chicken that gets simmered in milk! Does anyone know how to get real good breading with homemade crusts? I always seem to have issues with it...this is adapted from Better Homes & Garden.

Maryland Fried Chicken
Total Time: 75 Minutes
Serves 6

  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 3 tablespoons milk
  • 1 cup finely crushed saltine crackers (28 crackers)
  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme, crushed
  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/8 teaspoon black pepper
  • 2 1/2 to 3 pounds meaty chicken pieces (breast halves, thighs, and drumsticks)
  • 2 to 3 tablespoons cooking oil
  • 1 cup milk
In a small bowl combine the egg and the 3 tablespoons milk. In a shallow bowl combine crushed crackers, thyme, paprika and pepper. Dip chicken pieces, one at a time, in egg mixture; roll in cracker mixture.

In a large skillet brown chicken in hot oil over medium heat for 10 to 15 minutes, turning occasionally. Drain well.

Add the 1 cup milk to skillet. Heat just to boiling. Reduce heat to medium low; partially cover skillet. Cook for 35 minutes. Uncover; cook about 10 minutes more or until chicken is no longer pink. Serve chicken.

The Verdict
2/5 stars. This was very bland. I don't know if it is because I didn't get enough of the breading on or what. I always seem to have issues with that. I might try it again, but not totally sure....let me know your thoughts if you try it!
