Savory Pan-Fried Chicken with Hot Sauce

Earlier this week we had Buffalo Cauliflower.  I had seen this recipe a few times, and decided we should have it to use more of the Wing Sauce.  D said ok.

I won't go as far to say its texture is like the fried chicken you'd get at a place like Popeye's, but it was good.  The sauce on top felt kind of indulgent even though Wing Sauce (from Frank's) has no calories.

D said it was easy to make.  So we'll have again.  We had with Oven-Roasted Cauliflower with Garlic, Olive Oil, and Lemon.

This simple recipe is a revelation: It tastes as good as the old-school, supersavory chicken you'd get in a bucket.

Yield: Serves 4 (serving size: 2 thighs)
Hands-on: 20 Minutes
Total: 20 Minutes

8 (3-ounce) skinless, boneless chicken thighs
1 large egg, lightly beaten
1.5 ounces all-purpose flour (about 1/3 cup)
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt, divided
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon onion powder
1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1/2 teaspoon ground red pepper
1 1/2 tablespoons canola oil
1 1/2 tablespoons hot sauce (used Frank's Wing Sauce)

1. Combine chicken and egg in a shallow dish; toss to coat. Combine flour, 1/4 teaspoon salt, garlic powder, and next 3 ingredients (through red pepper) in a shallow dish; dredge chicken in flour mixture. Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add oil to pan; swirl to coat. Add chicken; cook 5 minutes on each side or until browned and done. Drain chicken on a plate lined with paper towels. Sprinkle with remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt; top with hot sauce.

I love that recipe, especially when more garlic powder was included. Hahaha! Putting hot sauce over fried chicken adds spice to the perfect breading mix, plus the other essential and healthy ingredients. The thought of tasting it makes my mouth water. Hahaha! Thanks for sharing that wonderful recipe! I'm sure to try that one out soon. Happy cooking!
