Fried Chicken & other things!


It’s been a busy weekend, we had my folks down for the weekend, with lots of cooking happening!  Sausage Rolls for lunch, Roast Beef (or Roast Beast as Cayden use to call it!) and Roasted Veg for Saturday and  Minestrone Soup and Apricot Chicken for yesterday.  Plus we had White Chocolate Panna Cottta and I also made George’s Creme Brulee from Masterchef’s masterclass last Friday.  MMMM, that was GOOD!!!  You can get the recipe here.

Last week we had good old finger lickin’ Fried Chicken.  This is good stuff!

Finger Lickin' Chicken

This is pretty simple and doesn’t really need a recipe.  I soak the chicken pieces (enough for the family) in 500ml of buttermilk overnight.  I then place each piece into seasoned (salt and pepper and some paprika) into dried breadcrumbs and cover the chicken.  It’s a good idea to then put this in the fridge uncovered for an hour or so if you have the time as it helps set the crumb.  Heat some oil in a large frypan or wok or is you have a deep fryer use that, and then carefully place chicken into oil cooking approx 8-9 minutes each side until cooked.  I then tend to place it in the oven for about 15minutes just to make sure the chicken is cooked.  Drain on paper towel and serve with sauce or mayo.  Mmmmm, yum!

It’s Emma’s Birthday tomorrow and my folks gave her a present yesterday of some clothes…oh man this girl is going to be a clothes horse as she gets older, she already is bad!  She pulled out a vest and her comment … Oh wow, it’s my favourite … now!
