Ingredients

  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1/4 teaspoon rubbed sage

  • Oil for frying
  • GRAVY:
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1-1/3 cups 2% milk

Directions

  1. In a large resealable plastic bag, combine the first five ingredients. Add chicken, a few pieces at a time, and shake to coat.
