4 large boneless-skinless chicken breasts
1 egg
1/2 cup buttermilk
1 sleeve saltine crackers, crushed in a ziploc bag
1 teaspoon garlic pepper
1 teaspoon paprika (if you have it)
1/3 cup vegetable oil

Place one chicken breast at a time in between two pieces of plastic wrap. With a meat mallet smooth side, pound until about 1/2 inch thick. In a small bowl whisk together egg and buttermilk and then add chicken; set aside.

Crush the saltine crackers in a ziploc bag with a rolling pin. Add the garlic pepper and paprika to the bag; add chicken pieces and coat one at a time to the bag. Shake the bag and also pressing some of the crumbs with your hand into the chicken. Heat veg. oil in a large skillet on med. high heat. Cook chicken turning over to brown evenly several times about 11-13 minutes.

Chicken Gravy

1 (14oz) can chicken broth
1 (10-3/4oz) can cream of chicken soup
1 (.07oz) envelope Good Seasonings Italian dressing mix

Remove the extra fat (there shouldn't be much) from the pan that you fried the chicken in, saving the browned bits in the bottom. Stir about one cup of the broth in the pan and mix with chicken soup until well combined, scraping the browned bits from the bottom of the pan. Add remaining broth, stirring to mix well and then add the Italian dressing mix. Bring to a boil and then reduce hear to low; simmer about 5 mins (longer if needed).

**You can make this gravy without making this chicken recipe, just make sure you have some (alittle not much) oil left in pan from fried chicken. This is some what healthier than frying chicken in a deep fryer or in a big pot of oil.

This is a very easy recipe and wont take that much time at all once you get started. Enjoy!

Well thanks! You might be right about the seasoning pack, would be nice but I have no clue if there is such a recipe for that or not.

You make a big batch silly.....you probably have all that stuff in large quantities sitting in your spice rack aready.....exept for the Cup of soup stuff......sounds like something you'd find at big lots now days. I remember when "cup-of-soup" was really cutting edge stuff. :mrgreen:
