Grandpa's chicken

I do so love my Grandpa's chicken - we all do!  This is more of a braised chicken breast - but we always called it Grandpa's chicken because that is what my Grandma always called it.  She said it was my Grandfather's favorite chicken!

4 chicken breasts - cut to be no thicker than 1/2 inch thick and now bigger than a deck of cards.  I usually get 8 to 10 pieces out of four chicken breasts.
Eggs - beaten
garlic powder
bread crumbs
onion powder
chili powder
water - 1 to 2 cups

set out two plates and a bowl.  In the bowl beat 2-3 eggs.  On one plate just put flour.  On other plate put flour and all seasoning.  Mix well. 

Put oil in large pan - heat until hot.  Take each chicken breast -first coat with just flour mixture, then put in beaten eggs, finally cover in flour spice mixture.  Fry until brown.

Once browned put in baking dish.  When all chicken is brown and in baking dish you make a pan gravy out of drippings in the frying pan you just used.  To do this - have pan still be hot.  Had water to pan and drippings - wisking it together.  It will be hot!  When all drippings have been mixed with water - pour over chicken in baking dish.

Pre-heat oven to 350.  Cover baking dish.  Bake for one hour.
