Garlic Fried Chicken
Why This Recipe Works
To deeply season the chicken, we marinated it in a mixture of extra-virgin olive oil, fresh minced garlic, and granulated garlic for at least an hour. To ensure that the coating adhered to the chicken, we dipped the pieces in egg whites before dredging them in flour seasoned with granulated garlic, salt, and pepper. For the sauce, we sautéed some minced garlic in just 1 tablespoon of the butter and a little water (the water kept the garlic from burning) before combining the mixture with the remaining butter and parsley.
