Fried chicken is a favorite family meal for many occasions. Make your own at home using a 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 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)
  • 3 Egg (either purchased cut up (recommended) or purchased whole and broken down into pieces)
  • 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!

3 Reviews for Simple Fried Chicken

    I’m calling this recipe “the bomb.com 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!
