I love having different sites on different food subjects. It allows me to explore different cultures, regions and parts of the world that motivate me food wise. As you know I am a New England girl and before we go starting a deep divided again let me just say I am very open minded and understand some places just do some foods better. Now with this said I told you I like exploring different foods and no exploration would be complete without the quid essential southern food of fried chicken.
When I set out to do anything outside my base I research the hell out of it and so does my staff. I would not begin to have done a Mexican food site without understanding it completely and I think over ten years I have built one of the best sources for Mexican inspired food on the internet corporate competitors included. Why because I put love into every recipe these have to get approved by five hungry guys and trust me being the only girl in a house of five guys they don’t cut me any slack when it comes to good food.
I think you will see that in this world made smaller by the internet we can understand others even if not having the luxury of living there. So I will put any one of my sites up against anyone’s and feel confident in the fact that we deliver top content on any subject we cover. Just like chefs travel and study so have we just in a virtual way. So as for this recipe it is a true southern based recipe and I think you will love the crispy texture to the crust this recipe achieves through the use of the corn flake crust. Finishing it off in the oven ensures a crispy crunchy chicken that is cooked through, yet moist inside and perfect on the outside as well. Continue reading
In Asian cuisine it is very common to fry food then cover it in a sauce. These sauces can range from sweet, to spicy, to somewhere in he middle. This one although it has a bit of bite is more or less a sweet sauce and warning not diabetic friendly. If you want that you will have to replace the brown sugar and white sugar with something like agave nectar but I have not tested this so it may take some trial and error.
This is one of the perennial favorites at Chinese takeout restaurants and it is no wonder. Americans love sweet and we love fried chicken in fact it is a core comfort food in many households so to combine these taste together is nothing short of culinary genius. I mean if you want to get an American to pay attention to a food item sugar and fried are two easy steps in the door.
I tried to keep this recipe straightforward as possible and although it does have a fairly long list of ingredients it is actually pretty simple to prepare. I mean the chicken is a simple dredge and flour kind of fried chicken so nothing to out of the norm there. And the sauce is all made in one pan and is mainly just some combing and whisking so it doesn’t burn to the bottom of the pan. If you want to make the sauce ahead of time and then just reheat it when you do the chicken just reheat it over low and be patient and it will be a pretty no fuss thing. Continue reading
The next time you want to make fried chicken, consider using Ritz cracker crumbs to make the coating instead of using seasoned flour. You will be able to taste the unmistakable flavor of these crackers in the finished coating, and they will also add an attractive color to the chicken. Perhaps you already have some Ritz crackers in the cupboard.
How to Make the Coating
Converting whole crackers into cracker crumbs is important, and the smaller you get the crumbs the better they will stick to the chicken, so you can either put them in a gallon-size Ziploc bag and smash them with a rolling pin or meat mallet, or else use a food processor or blender to do the same job in less time. You will also need to prepare a seasoned egg mixture and a seasoned flour mixture, because the chicken will be dipped in each one. If you want to double-layer the egg and flour mixture, that is your choice. It results in a slightly thicker coating if you do that. The chicken then needs to sit for a while so the coating can dry.
Although you can deep-fry this if you wish, pan-frying is perhaps more convenient, and pounded chicken takes no more than 10 to 15 minutes to cook to perfection. Feel free to tweak the seasonings if you wish, and even swap the Ritz crackers for saltines if you only have those. Some people like to add some cayenne pepper to spice things up, while others might throw in some parmesan cheese or crushed French-fried onions. Continue reading
Breadcrumbs are a popular coating for chicken, especially when combined with seasoned flour and egg, and you have the choice of dried or fresh breadcrumbs. If you have some stale bread to use up, consider making a breaded chicken recipe. The type of bread you use determines the flavor of the finished chicken, and there are lots of types to choose from.
Why Use Italian Everything Bread
Although ciabatta, whole wheat or even plain old white bread will all yield satisfactory breadcrumbs, Italian everything bread, which is widely available, is very popular in our household. This type of bread has seeds and grains on top, so you are going to get an interesting texture in the finished dish, along with more flavors. Just process the bread for a few seconds in the blender or food processor to convert it into breadcrumbs, then you can make the following recipe. The bread does not have to be stale, but if you do find yourself with leftover stale bread, this is a great way to use it up.
Depending how thick the slices of bread are, you will need about 8 slices to get 2½ cups of breadcrumbs. If you enjoy this recipe you might want to make it often. Something else you can try is coating fish filets in this breadcrumb mixture, then serving them with lemon wedges. Fish would have a much shorter cooking time of course. This Italian everything breadcrumb chicken is cooked in a pan in butter, so you can expect an incredible flavor along with a nice crunch. Continue reading
