I used to be petrified to fry chicken in a skillet. The hot oil popping, blasting like liquid fire balls. It’s a 2nd degree burn just waiting to happen! I’ve tried many methods to fry chicken, but I came to conclusion that there’s nothing like the perfect crunch & tenderness that comes from frying chicken in a skillet. So to get over my fear, I said a quick prayer & made a simple fried chicken recipe on my own.

It was pretty dang good if I do say so myself!! So, today I want to share with you a simple (gluten free) recipe for pan-fried chicken called “Tender Zingy Chicken Crunch.” Because who doesn’t love a fun name for a delicious recipe!
