In a medium bowl, beat together 125ml milk and egg. In a resealable plastic bag, mix together the flour, garlic salt, paprika, pepper and chicken seasoning. Place chicken in bag, seal and shake to coat. Dip chicken in milk and egg mixture, then once more in flour mixture. Reserve any remaining flour mixture.
In a large frying pan, heat oil to 185 degrees C. Place coated chicken in the hot oil and brown on all sides. Reduce heat to medium-low and continue cooking until the chicken is tender, about 30 minutes. Remove chicken from frying pan and drain on kitchen towels.
Discard all but 2 tablespoons of the frying oil. Over low heat, stir in 2 tablespoons of the reserved flour mixture. Stirring constantly, cook about 2 minutes. Whisk in chicken stock, scraping browned bits off bottom of frying pan. Stir in 250ml milk, and bring all to the boil over high heat, stirring constantly. Reduce heat to low and simmer for about 5 minutes. Serve immediately with the chicken.
