  • 1 lb. boneless chicken breast sliced into cubes
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon paprika optional
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 3 to 4 cups cooking oil


  • Place chicken in a bowl. Add garlic powder, ground black pepper, salt, and paprika. Mix well. Let the chicken absorb the seasonings for 10 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, Crack the eggs in a bowl. Beat.
  • Place flour in a bowl. Line-up with the bowl of beaten egg and then the one the marinated chicken breasts.
  • Heat the oil in a cooking pot to 300F.
  • Dip each piece of chicken in beaten egg, and then dredge in flour. Make sure that the chicken gets coated with flour all over. Put in a clean plate or bowl.
  • Double coat the chicken by repeating the previous step (dip in egg again and then dredge in flour).
  • Deep fry each coated chicken piece for 3 to 5 minutes or until light to medium brown. Remove from the pot and let the excess oil drip.
  • Arrange in a a serving plate with your favorite dip. I suggest that you serve this with ranch. Here is the recipe.
