How to Make Just Like AppleBee's Chicken Fried Chicken

Step-by-Step

  1. Pound the chicken between two sheets of wax paper, large baggie or celophane. Sprinkle on the kosher salt, garlic powder and pepper on the chicken breast.
  2. Place 2 cups of flour in a shallow bowl. I add more seasonings to the flour. Stir together the baking powder, pepper, garlic powder salt.
  3. Place in another bowl the buttermilk and the egg. Add a dash of Tabasco sauce optional.
  4. Than dredge each chicken piece into the flour. Do this 2 and it is called double dipping.
  5. Heat the shortening to 325 degrees. Fry each chicken until golden brown 3 to 5 minutes per side. Place on a paper towel to drain.
  6. Drain the fat from the skillet, reserving 1/4 cup of the liquid and solids for the gravy. Stir in milk and cream heat to medium, and bring the gravy to a simmer. Cook until thick. Season. Spoon gravy over chicken. Done!
  7. You have saved yourself $25.00 plus drinks and tip for 2 people.
