There are about as many fried chicken recipes as there are cooks, but this one has long been my favorite. I clipped it from the cooking section of my hometown newspaper many years ago. Full of flavor!

Ingredients

TO PREPARE CHICKEN:

6
boneless chicken breasts, with or without skin
water to cover chicken
3 Tbsp
salt

DRY COATING:

4 c
flour
1 tsp
black pepper
1 tsp
garlic powder
1 tsp

1/4 tsp
celery salt
1 tsp
msg (accent) optional

4
eggs
1/4 tsp

Step-By-Step

1Cover chicken with water. Add salt and mix well. Soak chicken in salt water in refrigerator for 24 hours.
2Mix together all dry ingredients; set aside.
3In a medium size bowl, beat eggs, then add pepper, garlic and onion powders and celery salt.
4Rinse chicken lightly, if desired. Roll chicken in the flour mixture; shake off excess. Roll in the egg mixture, then back in the flour mixture.
