I made this chicken on a whim tonight...had different plans, but this is what I ended up with, and the whole family loved it. If you don't like onions or buttermilk...use milk and fore go the onions.

The chicken was so tender, we cut it with a fork...

Enjoy!

How to Make Chicken Fried Chicken W/ Onions & Buttermilk Gravy

Step-by-Step

  1. In a flat container ( I used a pie plate ) mix 2/3 C. flour, cheese, 1/2 tsp salt, 1/2 tsp pepper, 1/2 tsp cumin, 1 tsp garlic powder, and 1/2 tsp cayenne.

    Crush cracker crumbs and place on another flat plate.

    Mix the egg and buttermilk.
  2. Pound out the chicken breasts. Salt and pepper both sides.
  3. In skillet heat oil over medium - high heat.

    Dredge chicken in flour mixture: dip in egg mixture, then in cracker crumbs. Add to hot oil.

    Reduce heat to medium; cook until chicken is golden, turning once, 2-3 minutes per side.

    Meanwhile, preheat oven to 400 degree ( for keeping chicken warm, while making gravy. )

    If not making gravy and onions, the chicken is finished and ready to eat as soon as juices run clear.
  4. Gravy:
    When chicken is finished cooking; remove from pan and keep warm in preheated oven.

    In the same skillet...add enough oil to saute onions. About 10 minutes.
  5. Remove onions,leaving brown bits in skillet.

    Add flour; gradually add buttermilk, chicken broth, salt and pepper.

    Bring to a boil; cook, stirring constantly until thickened.
  6. Serve gravy over chicken. Place fried onions on top.

    Enjoy! This chicken reminds me of something my Gram would make. She would love this.
