Pan Fried Chicken Quarters

We are big chicken eaters. I like how versitale chicken is and that I can cook it many different ways. Pan fried chicken gives the skin and meat a nice, crisp flavor and eliminates the extra grease used in frying. This recipe will work for any chicken cuts, just adjust your time for the size and variety of the cuts of chicken.

To ensure the meat has good flavor, I season the skin as well as the meat underneath.

Pan Fried Chicken:

3 chicken quarters

2 tsp. Olive oil

Garlic Powder

Smoked Paprika

Onion Powder

Season Salt


Heat oil on medium heat. Season meat and skin with seasonings to your liking. Once oil is hot, add quarters to pan, cover and cook 10-15 min on each side. Cook until chicken is no longer pink and juices run clear.

Serve with oven roasted potatoes. (Recipe to follow!)
