Recipe: Beer-Battered Fried Chicken

This recipe comes from the Standard-Examiner Recipe Exchange Cookbook and was submitted by Pat Groustra.


  • 1 1/2 pounds boneless, skinless chicken breast halves
  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour, divided
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 1/2 cup cold beer
  • 3 cups oil for frying


Rinse chicken and slice into 1-inch strips. In a medium bowl, stir together 1 cup flour and the baking powder.

Mix in the eggs and beer. Place remaining 1/2 cup flour in a small bowl.

Heat oil in a deep, heavy skillet to 375 degrees. Coat chicken strips in flour. Dip floured strips into the batter.

Fry a few at a time in hot oil, turning once, until coating is golden brown on both sides. Remove and keep warm until serving.
