Fried chicken is a favorite family meal for many occasions and this easy fried chicken recipe gives us a super simple way to get delicious fried chicken on our table in no time.

You can make your own crispy fried chicken at home using cut-up fryer chicken (or a whole chicken broken down into parts) to enjoy fried chicken at its most flavorful.

This is a simple, traditional fried chicken recipe to make fried chicken using either a stove top or a deep fryer.

If you’d like, please feel free to add more seasonings to your taste.

Let us know what your favorite seasoning mix for fried chicken is in the comments below and maybe we’ll add up your recipe to the site. Enjoy!


  • 1 Chicken (fryer chicken either purchased cut up (recommended) or purchased whole and broken down into pieces)
  • 3 Egg
  • 2 cup Flour
  • 1 Tbsp Kosher Salt
  • 2 tsp Pepper
  • 1 tsp Garlic Powder
  • 1 tsp Paprika
  • Vegetable Oil


  1. In a large bowl, beat the eggs. In another bowl, combine the salt, pepper, garlic powder and paprika to make a seasoned salt. Add the flour to a third bowl.

  2. Prepare the chicken by first seasoning each piece of chicken to your taste with the seasoned salt. Then dip each piece in the egg and drag through flour until coated well.

  3. Fill a large pot or deep fryer half full with oil and heat to 350°F. Place the chicken parts in and fry until dark and crisp. The thighs and legs will take longer to cook – about 15 minutes – than the breast and wings, which will take about 10 minutes.

  4. Remove from heat, let sit for 5 minutes to cool and enjoy!

    I’m calling this recipe “the fried chicken” with a comment on the side “YESSS, GIRRLL!”
    First time EVER I’ve made fried chicken that actually turned out like the picture. It was so simple and delicious. I used boneless breasts cut in half. Crispy on the outside, perfect inside. Easy, nothing fancy. Will 100% make again.

    Turned out great!

    Love this recipe

    Perfect! Easy recipe to follow and it turned great. My first time doing fried chicken! Thank you for sharing.

    So yummy , full of flavor n crunchy, will make it my go to fried chicken recipe

    Loved this recipe! Very easy and comes out so well. I have done it with Chicken right from the package, and it comes out great. I also tried after lightly brining the bird. And I think it was even better. But either way, this is an outstanding recipe! 🙂

    This is really amazing. i didn’t have a deep frier, so i just used an oven for 21 minutes. i also didn’t have garlic powder so i used garlic steak rub.
    Thx for the recipe it is soooooo amazing

    Delish!! We used this recipe for chicken and waffles. My family raved about the chicken!

    Very good

    Haven’t made yet, wondering if you can mix the egg with buttermilk instead of regular milk

      That’s a great idea. You could definitely do that if you have buttermilk!

    Turned out really good! I didn’t really keep a timer on this recipe.. it’s best to just watch it and pay attention to the coloring of the breading. Always use a knife to cut it open and check if your chicken is cooked all the way thru. Heads up! This takes longer than it says to cook, always practice safety measures with raw meat and always check to see if cooked all the way thru. Otherwise, tasty!

    Came out great. Highly recommend.

    yummy.Its simple

    So simple. Looks and tastes great. Added to rotation. Thank you!!
