Garlic Fried Peppered Chicken


Who doesn’t love chicken, especially when it is fried in garlic and pepper? This is a  chicken dish you will love! It is fried and seasoned multiple times but is well worth the crispy garlic crust that is formed along with the juiciness packed inside. This layers of flavors chicken was served with some Boiled Cabbage and my favorite Jalapeno Bacon Macaroni & Cheese!

Delicious Rating: This may not be the healthiest chicken but it is surely good. Make sure you have everything ready and read through the recipe before starting. There are a few flips and season layers that my throw you off if you aren’t paying attention to which one you are on! My DH loved it and thought it was a delicious change up to regular fried chicken or baked chicken recipes I use.

  1. Slice each chicken breast in half lengthwise.

Really infuse the oil with the garlic, the chicken will be that much more tasty!
You can change the amount of oil depending on how large your pan is for frying. I used a 7qt Le Creuset to fry the chicken. Just make sure that at least half of the breast is submerged in oil.
I started to forget how many times I flipped the chicken! Just keep track! The chicken will form some nice brown crust full of the spices and minced garlic…yum!
