Butter fried chicken is very simple to make. It tastes as well as smells so great. The texture of outer layer is crispy and the inner part is juicy and tender. Try it out, you will love it..

Take a bowl. Add flour, bread crumbs, oregano and salt. Mix them well until all incorporated.

Note: Instead of adding breadcrumbs and oregano separately, you can also use Italian seasoned breadcrumbs.

Take a chicken piece, dredge it in the flour mixture, then dip it in the egg mixture. Now again coat it well in the flour mixture. Keep the flour coated chicken in separate plate.

Repeat the same for rest of the chicken pieces.

Step 5: Shallow Fry the Chicken

Melt butter in large skillet over medium flame.

Shallow fry the chicken in all sides, until it cooked well and the outer layer turned to golden brown color. ( it took 15 minutes for me to fry. Keep an eye on it, do not burnt it)

Remove excess oil using paper towel.

Note: While frying the chicken, cook it in medium flame or else the outer layer would burn easily before the chicken get cooked well.

Step 6: Serve HOT!

And it's done! The buttery taste with the Oregano worked just right!

Carried the leftovers for lunch the next day and they were awesome!

Next time I have to put in a little more pepper powder to build up a bit of heat.

Overall it was a hit with the family!

If your chicken isn't fully done you can finish it in a 350 degree oven. It will stay crispy that way.
