Nanny’s Chicken

The best meat for this is boneless thighs or breast.  You can have the skin on or off, whatever your preference is.  I won’t really put a measurement since it really depends on how many you’re making and how much garlic/onion/salt you like to taste. Use a lot more cracker crumbs than the other dry ingredients.  Judge for yourself.


  • a bit of savory
  • a bit of onion salt (I’ll use dried onion or onion powder)
  • ground cracker crumbs (put them through a food processor or magic bullet if you have one)
  • salt to taste if you haven’t used onion salt
  • a bit of pepper
  • 1 eggs or more as needed


Mix the egg(s) up in a bowl.  In another bowl, mix the dry ingredients together well.  Heat up a frying pan with oil in it.  Take a piece of chicken, coat it well in the egg mix then lay into the bowl with the dry ingredients and coat well.  Place in the pan and continue until you have a panful done (or less if you don’t have many).  Brown them and remove from the pan. If you don’t want to put them in the oven to finish cooking (below), cook well in the pan and serve hot.

Optional:  This will make them moist and melt in your mouth.  Place in an oven-safe dish and pour a small amount of water in it and heat to 350 degrees F. for 20-30 min. whenever it’s cooked all the way through.  Cover for 10 min. and then remove from oven.  Serve hot.  Another recipe that’s soooooo good!
