So I know it doesn’t sound healthy to be making a “fried chicken breast”, especially in the beginning of the year when everyone is trying to lose weight but I just had to make this chicken as I was craving it! And by the way, I didn’t do a deep fry, I only used enough oil to get a nice crispy coating.
During the holidays, I was introduced to a seasoning flour…I had never heard of a seasoning flour before and was quite taken by it. It’s so funny how many time you can go down an aisle of the market and never see see something and then you are introduced to it and you see it everywhere, right? This is my new crazy obsession! I have tried two different brands and I have to say I liked this one better then the other one, it’s called “Dixie Fry” and it’s super easy to use in creating amazing meals. I like the fact that it has two packets in it, the flavor was great and it gave a nice “fried” texture as well.
Like everyone else, I want to lose weight, especially in the beginning of the year. To help with that is adding a little spice to your everyday life, from what I read, the spice helps in you craving food so you tend to eat less. Don’t quote me on that but I went for it with this recipe. This is what I used for my spice but remember this is just a option not a requirement, I used Sriracha (you can find it in most markets and it’s my favorite go-to for spice)
I basically put my chicken in a bowl and I coated it with some buttermilk and spice (you can skip this step and just follow the instructions on the box, I think they have instructions or email me if you want other options)
and I mixed it all well until it all coated
Here is how the box looks for the Dixie Fry Mix
I put 1 envelope in a shallow pan
I coated each piece of chicken, removing it directly from the buttermilk into the pan
and then I put a frying pan on the stove with some oil, got the oil hot and added my chicken
I cooked them until they were nice and golden on one side then I’d flip them
and cooked until they were completely cooked through…omg YUM!
For us, we always squirt a little lemon on our fried chicken it just makes it all taste amazing!!! This is a super easy dish and I will share that I won’t be creating my own mixes, unless I have to, as I really, really, really LOVE this product!
