(6oz) boneless,skinless chicken breasts - make sure all are about the same thickness; if not pound out so that they all cook roughly the same amount of time.

CRISCO VEGETABLE OIL FOR FRYING

2Combine corn meal, flour, salt, paprika, onion powder and pepper in a shallow dish; mix well.
Combine egg and water in another shallow dish.
3Dip the chicken in the egg mixture.
4Now coat with the cornmeal mixture.
5Pour enough oil to meausre about a 1/4 inch in a heavy skillet, I use a cast iron skillet. You could also use an electric skillet.
Heat oil to 365ºF in electric skillet or on medium heat in large heavy skillet.
6Now fry the chicken 5 to 8 minutes on each side, until well-browned and internal temperature reaches 165ºF.
Drain on paper towels and serve, or if not finished cooking all of the chicken; place the cooked chicken on a bakers rack, and place inside a 200 degree oven to keep warm.
