I am pretty sure that God eats fried chicken in heaven, he would have to because it’s that good.
Peach and I eat a lot of chicken, and trying to find ways to make it interesting and different sometimes is hard to do, but there is one way it is always acceptable and that’s fried. Golden brown and delicious with just the right seasonings and crunch and there is no better food on this planet.
Think back in to your youth and one food you will remember having always will be fried chicken. Fried chicken is one of those foods moms just know how to cook, they need no fancy cookbooks or ingredients. Just a cast iron skillet (those observant ones of you will notice mine was done in an electric skillet, I have a cast iron ‘Lodge’ skillet, I chose the electric because it was out already and I’m sometimes lazy) some oil (I use vegetable) and chicken. Yes, there are shakes and dredges and drenched you can use but you don’t have to, salt and pepper work fine. I cook it at 325-330 till the interior is 160 (carryover heat does the rest). My mom does flower and eggs as a breading (I cannot compete with moms but I think mines ok) I’ve done it with or without breading, funny I’ve done chicken with or without the skin to (without skin is harder to do without making the outside tough so be careful) and we like it both ways.
Fried chicken, comfort food, y’all don’t forget it in today’s times where everything has to be fancy or healthy, cause it’s just plain good stuff.
