Country Fried Chicken & Corn on the Cob

I don't make fried chicken very often, but every now and again it's a good comfort food. I don't have a recipe per se but here's how I fry it up! I use boneless, skinless chicken thighs.

1. Marinade: If you are organized, try to soak the chicken in buttermilk overnight. This is also where you can add seasoning and/or hot sauce.

2. Dry: Coat chicken in dry mixture of flour, lots of salt, seasoning salt, pepper and garlic powder.

3. Wet: Then drudge in egg and milk.

4. Dry: To make extra crispy, coat and press in panko flakes.

5. Fry: I just fry them up in a large sauce pan with either canola or vegetable oil. Make sure the oil is really hot. Each thigh should fry for at least 6-8 mins per side, or until golden brown. Then place in baking dish, dash some salt on them and bake @ 350° for about 20 mins.

And just in case nobody ever told you how to cook corn on the cob:
- boil in water for about 8 mins
- smother with butter
