I love serving fried chicken when we have a Southern meal to family and friends, but I don’t like standing over a hot stove frying the chicken at the last min! One evening when we were having friends over for dinner, we weren’t sure what exact time they would get here due to their grandchild’s event! So because of that I came up with frying the chicken a couple hours before we expected them and made gravy to pour over the chicken pieces. Baked it in the oven for about 20-30 min in preheated 300 degrees until gravy was bubbling! This time I added something that I hope will make it a true southern dish….1/2 stick of melted butter over the chicken before pouring the gravy over the top! Paula Deen, you would be right at home serving this! Serving this alongside a new potato casserole (a friend is bringing) a green salad (another friend is bringing), deviled eggs, green beans with bacon, Corn muffins, Sister Schubert rolls, and ending the meal with pecan pie and chocolate cream pie with whipped cream! Heart Dr is on speed dial!
4 chicken boneless chicken breasts, cup up and soak in buttermilk
1 egg, beaten
After u have soaked the chicken pieces, remove to a piece of waxed paper. Add the beaten egg to the buttermilk in the bowl
Dip each piece in the buttermilk mixture then the flour mixture. Fry in hot oil until all chicken has been fried.
Place in a greased baking dish and distribute the melted butter evenly, trying to get each piece a little bit of the butter. If u have too much chicken for that amount of butter, just melt more butter to make sure each piece has a little taste. After all, what is a southern meal without butter?
2 packages of Pioneer Gravy Mix
1/2 stick (4 oz) unsalted butter
