All-Natural Cornmeal Pan Fried Chicken

Get this deliciously crispy chicken on the table in under a half hour!

  • Total Time: 25 minutes
  • Yield: 4 1x





  1. In a shallow bowl, whisk together egg, sour cream, and Cajun seasoning. In another bowl (with a dry utensil), stir together cornmeal and flour.
  2. Pour enough oil in a 10 or 12″ skillet just to cover the bottom (about 1/8″ deep). The amount will vary depending on the size of your skillet. Heat over medium-high heat until oil is very hot.
  3. Meanwhile, dip each piece of chicken into the egg mixture, coating both sides, and allow the excess to drip off. Then, press both sides of chicken into cornmeal mixture, and shake off excess.
  4. Cook chicken pieces in hot oil. Cook for 5-7 minutes per side or until internal temperature reaches at least 160 degrees F. Serve immediately to enjoy crispy coating.
