Skinless of course. Why bread the skin and then not eat it? I dip in egg wash then a bread crumb, bread flour, herbs and spices mix, POG and a few other goodies from the rack.

For years I've been frying my thighs in a mix of 2/3 veg oil and 1/3 olive oil, we like the flavor. Too breezy to cook outside.

It takes about 7-8 minutes a side to get cooked through, comes out golden brown and juicy

Plate it up with a little tater salad and zukes, little glass of wine

Amazing how something so simple and easy can make you feel so good, no sauce needed, just plain old pan-fried goodness. Thanks for lookin'! RAY

Awesome looking chicken thighs and a beautiful plate! I love chicken thighs breaded and fried on a pan... Ray, this sounds great but..... why "little glass of wine" ? I know you are better than that!!! :emoji_wink:
It's the same 8 ounce crystal glass that I've had my Evan in Push. True, it's not a dainty little wine glass, but it's not a beer mug either! Thank you for the like Push, I appreciate it. RAY


Looks amazing ray. Love me some fried chicken
Me too Jake! Sometimes a man just craves fried chicken and nothing else is going to do. RAY

I used to love the Kentucky Colonel when I was kid John! Course that was back in the day I'd gobble down all that skin fat without a second thought. Now I make health food! RAY

Looks good Ray! I, too miss the days when eating the skin was acceptable. But it is what it is, right? Enjoy.

Yep, seems the older we get the more things we have to quit Mike, drugs, smokes, booze, food. That's why you don't want to quit anything too soon. If you go to the doctor's office and don't have anything left to quit I reckon you just die. Thanks for the Like, I appreciate it. RAY

Looks great Ray.
Yeah miss the simpler if less informed days ... and my mothers fried chicken, and Italian seasoned cube steaks.
If it wasn’t for the grandkids I’m about the age to be thinking what the hell ... at least I’m going happy and full!
Need to come up with some kind of vices trading matrix ... :emoji_thinking:

Hell Joe, when I think about I can't recall anyone ever saying "no thanks, I don't like fried chicken". That first crispy bite, the warm juicy oil, I love fried chicken! RAY


Fine looking chicken Ray! And you're right, sometimes ya just gotta have it Ryan
Because the human body craves fried food Ryan! It can be shrimp, or rockfish, or a chicken fried steak, but it's needs to happen. It's easy to quit sugar and cut down on carbs, tho the body will cry out for carbs after awhile. Breaded and fried? I need it about once a week, even fried zucchini will do. RAY


Been a long time since good ole fried chicken. Gotta do it again soon.
There's no time like the present Rider! Thanks for the Like, I appreciate it. RAY

Thanks you my friend! I imagine you are a little cooler than the 112º in the shade it is in my backyard right now, we just got out of the pool. We might blast off to up around Flagstaff soon, tho I have an app for roof maintenance on my camper come this Monday, I'm going to snoop around tomorrow for turkey tenders. Thanks for the Like amigo, mucho appreciendo! RAY

I can remember when my mama got margarine for my dad to eat instead of butter. Then they found that the poly unsaturated fats in the stuff were far worse than just butter. There are no trades, it's all just a crapshoot! Thank you for the Like, I truly do appreciate it. RAY

Those look amazing Ray!! Love chicken thighs.
Yes sir, and thank you! There was a time in life I lived on 3,000 acres of beets, barley and cotton, all mine to protect from outsiders. If we had $5.00 we'd buy a box of shotgun shells and some beer. Pheasants were always on the menu back than, roosters or hens, in season or out, didn't make a dammed bit of difference. I guess I should feel bad about that, but I don't. After 45 years they'd have all been poisoned anyway in the San Joaquin Valley. Thanks for the Like, much appreciated. RAY
