Those pickle jar crackers started staring at me. Mocking me. Enticing me to eat them when my stomach was full. They had to go. With a rolling pin they were turned into a coating for this fried chicken recipe. It was the day pickle jar chicken was born.
Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 40 minutes
Total Time: 45 minutes
- pickle jar crackers or your favorite seasoned crackers
- chicken pieces
- olive oil
- smoked paprika or spice of choice (optional)
Here's how to make it:
Crush the crackers in a plastic zipper bag until they are fine crumbs.
Melt about 2 tablespoons of butter in an oven-proof skillet or baking pan (I used my cast iron pan).
Pour the cracker crumbs into a bowl. Season the chicken with black pepper, to taste.
Dip the chicken pieces into the crumbs, pressing so they adhere.
Place the chicken in the skillet with the melted butter. Sprinkle with smoked paprika or spice of choice. Drizzle with a little olive oil.
Bake in a 375-degree F oven until chicken is cooked through, crisp and golden brown, about 40 to 45 minutes, depending on the size and parts of the chicken you used.
