Superbowl of Chicken, Part II

5 Comments

Before I begin, apologies for the serious lag between posts. (Has it really been almost 2 weeks since I last wrote?) There isn’t a special excuse as to why I haven’t been posting as often; mostly, it’s because I’ve been too busy/lazy/tired to write. I’m sorry to say that this will likely be a continuing trend because I’m moving in 3 weeks to a more spacious apartment (hurrah!), so I’ll be preoccupied organizing, de-cluttering, and packing. Just wanted to share that with y’all, since I know some of you out there worry when I’m not posting (bless your hearts!).

Part II: How homemade buttermilk fried chicken made me care about Superbowl XLIV

Even though I just came from a big meal at Zuni, I couldn’t resist the pull of KP and JA’s homemade fried chicken, which they were making for KP’s Superbowl party. If you ask me, I think they were just using the Superbowl as an excuse to fry chicken all day long. Anyway, the recipe came from the Cook’s Illustrated The New Best Recipe cookbook. Battered in buttermilk and flavorful seasoning before being fried in oil in a dutch oven (my beloved, red Le Creuset oven to be exact), this fried chicken was the bomb. I had two pieces but would’ve definitely eaten more if I wasn’t already so full.

  1. Yo, I made some HELLA amazeballs fried chicken the other night, with my signature homemade french fries. The awesome secret ingredient? Mixing Mi Pueblo’s spicy ass red salsa into the egg + 1/2 and 1/2 mixture, before battering up. SO DAMN GOOD.

  2. I believe even Dixie Lee would be impressed! Way to go-xoxR

  3. I really must say thank you for giving me something to escape studying. Well, back to work for me. Thanks so much!
