  • 4 eggs, well beaten, seasoned with 1 teaspoon salt and pepper
  • 4 cups flour
  • 4 new potatoes, sliced 1/4-inch thick

    Gathering around the TV for game day? These fried chicken skewers from Elizabeth Heiskell are a great snack — no utensils needed!

    Swap option:  Use chicken thighs instead of chicken breasts.

    Equipment needed: Deep fryer or large, deep pot for frying, mixing bowls, 10-inch skewers

    Preparation

    In a large bowl whisk salt and pepper into eggs.  

    In medium bowl combine: flour, Cajun seasoning, seasoning salt and Greek seasoning.

    Place chicken pieces, potato slices and pickles in egg mixture.

    Skewer in this order: chicken, potato, pickle.

    Once skewer is filled, dredge in flour mixture until all ingredients are covered.

    In a deep fryer heated to 375F, place skewers and fry until skewers float to top. If you don’t have a deep fryer, use a deep pot, being sure to fill it with oil no more than half full.

    After frying, place on plate lined with paper towels.
