This week has been tech week for the show Marc and I are doing. That means the theater is our second home and we need quick dinners to get there on time after work! This quick and simple pan fried chicken was just the ticket. It came together in just 20 minutes! I made a flavorful flour mixture to dredge my chicken in that came together in a couple of minutes. The smoked paprika gave it just a little heat, with salt for good seasoning. Ground mustard, dried onion and dried oregano rounded it out gorgeously!
The dredged chicken went into my cast iron skillet that had about an inch of oil nice and hot already. I let them get golden and gorgeous for about 3-4 minutes on each side.
Once the pan fried chicken was done on both sides, I transferred the pan right into my 350 oven for a few minutes. That was to just be safe and make sure the chicken was completely cooked through. It also made the chicken even more golden! I took it out and let it rest for a couple of minutes before serving. Oh my goodness, the chicken was super juicy. The flour mixture gave it such an amazing crust. Best of all, it was done in 20 minutes! I just served it with dressed baby spinach on the side. It was the perfect light meal for lots of dancing in rehearsal. Enjoy, friends!
