This Buttery Garlic Fried Chicken is an addicting, flavorful and melt in your mouth comfort food. You won’t want to make fried chicken any other way!
What makes this chicken taste so delicious, is partly due to the simple marinade. For 1 hour, the chicken sits in the mixture of olive oil, minced garlic, and garlic powder. Then when your ready to fry, the chicken is coated in egg whites and covered in a seasoned flour mixture and left to sit in the fridge for 30 minutes to set.
While the chicken is being fried, the garlic butter sauce is prepared. Garlic butter is perfect on top of a nice steak, baked potato and of course those Red Lobster biscuits! This time, we are going to add even more butter to these beautiful pieces of fried chicken to give it that ultra succulent bite.
The marinade is important to achieving the right flavor of the meat. It is just as important to let the dredged chicken set in the fridge as well. This helps the flour mixture really hold onto the chicken. In the hot oil, you’ll want that breading to remain in place to cook it’s way to that extra crispy texture.
