Buttermilk Pan-Fried Chicken with Creamed Corn Recipe

Pan-fried chicken is an excellent choice for dinner! While fried chicken isn't as healthy as other types of chicken, you're still getting a dinner that's packed with protein. It's okay to indulge a little sometimes, especially with a dinner that tastes this good.

With this recipe, we recommend serving creamed corn. We've included a creamed corn recipe below that we think is fairly easy. But, if you're low on time or energy, canned creamed corn is always fine, too. Or, try another creamed vegetable of your choice!

When frying, always remember to exercise caution. We don't recommend letting children help with this recipe, as hot oil is very dangerous. Make sure all of your younger kids know to stay away from the stove when hot oil is involved. Older children should know to act safely around the stove when something is being fried.
