4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts, pounded to even thickness

1 cup all-purpose flour

1 teaspoon paprika

1 teaspoon garlic powder

1 teaspoon salt

1/2 teaspoon black pepper

2 eggs, beaten

1 cup milk

Oil for frying

For the Gravy:

2 tablespoons reserved frying oil

2 tablespoons all-purpose flour

2 cups milk

Salt and pepper, to taste


  1. Prepare the Chicken:
    • In a shallow dish, combine flour, paprika, garlic powder, salt, and pepper.
    • In another dish, whisk together eggs and 1 cup of milk.
    • Dredge each chicken breast first in the flour mixture, ensuring it’s evenly coated.
    • Dip the flour-coated chicken in the egg mixture, then dredge it again in the flour mixture for a double coating.
  2. Fry the Chicken:
    • Heat oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat.
    • Carefully place the coated chicken breasts into the hot oil.
    • Fry until golden brown and cooked through, approximately 4-5 minutes per side.
    • Once cooked, transfer the chicken to a paper towel-lined plate to drain excess oil.
  3. Make the Gravy:
    • Discard all but 2 tablespoons of the frying oil from the skillet.
    • Stir in 2 tablespoons of flour and cook for about 1 minute over medium heat to form a roux.
    • Gradually whisk in 2 cups of milk, ensuring there are no lumps.
    • Continue to cook and stir until the gravy thickens to a creamy consistency.
    • Season with salt and pepper to taste.


Serve the fried chicken with creamy gravy poured over the top or on the side for dipping.

Garnish with fresh herbs for an extra burst of flavor.
