Better Than Best Fried Chicken

This was awesome! I made it at Scout Camp and it turned out great.
Prep Time: 15 Mins
Cook Time: 30 Mins

8 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves
2 (10.75 ounce) can condensed cream of chicken soup
2 eggs
seasoning salt to taste
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 cup cornstarch
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon paprika
salt and pepper to taste
oil for frying


In a shallow dish or bowl combine the soup, egg and seasoning salt (be careful, as soup is already salted); mix together. Dip chicken in mixture and turn to coat completely. Set aside.

In a resealable plastic bag mix together the flour, cornstarch, garlic powder, paprika, salt and pepper. One at a time, place chicken pieces in bag, seal and shake to coat. Add more flour and/or cornstarch as necessary, but add them in equal parts (there should be an equal amount of each in the mixture).

Place coated chicken on a platter and allow to sit until it becomes doughy (this is critical, to ensure crispiness when fried). Heat oil in a deep skillet over medium heat; be sure to use enough oil to cover chicken pieces. Once chicken is doughy, test oil by dropping a piece of the 'dough' into it; the oil is ready when it starts to fry immediately.

Fry chicken pieces in oil for about 7 to 10 minutes each, or until cooked through and juices run clear. Drain on paper towels and serve.
