Maryland Fried Chicken with Creamy Gravy

What sets this fried chicken apart from the typical recipe is that milk is added after partially cooking the chicken so the pieces simmer rather than fry.

Maryland Fried Chicken with Creamy Gravy

Ingredients

Directions

  1. In a small bowl combine the egg and the 3 tablespoons milk. In a shallow bowl combine crushed crackers, thyme, paprika, and pepper. Dip chicken pieces, 1 at a time, in egg mixture; roll in cracker mixture.
  2. In a large skillet brown chicken in hot oil over medium heat for 10 to 15 minutes, turning occasionally. Drain well.
  3. Add the 1 cup milk to skillet. Heat just to boiling. Reduce heat to medium-low; cover tightly. Cook for 35 minutes. Uncover; cook about 10 minutes more or until chicken is no longer pink (170 degrees F for breasts; 180 degrees F for thighs and drumsticks). Transfer chicken to a serving platter, reserving drippings for gravy. Cover chicken and keep warm. Prepare Creamy Gravy. Makes 6 servings.
