Do you want a “lick your plate clean” kind of meal? Then you need to eat more fried chicken. If you already love fried chicken- no worries this recipe has a twist that is sure to keep your taste buds guessing.
I eat fried chicken at least once a week. That’s right- I said it. I’ll repeat myself. I eat fried chicken at least once a week. I freaking LOVE fried chicken. I have to have it once a week. It’s what I crave. No, no it’s a necessity. I’ve tried so many fried chicken recipes I lost count a few years ago. Fried chicken was one of the foods I perfected making my first year at college.
Since I make fried chicken so often- I thought I would change things up and try [GASP] someone else’s recipe. When I found “Fried Chicken” by Rebecca Lang- I knew it was written especially for me. Do you now understand exactly how much I love fried chicken? When it arrived- I was joyous. I did a happy dance, texted my husband and told everyone I was texting at the time. I really, truly love fried chicken.
The Cookbook “Fried Chicken” written by Rebecca Lang is a great addition to my collection. What I was most excited about was that there is a great selection of recipes. The book is based off of three chapters:
1- Skillet fried
2- Deep Fried
3- Combination Fried
I thought this was a really cool way to divide the recipes. While I personally prefer to skillet fry chicken (in my cast iron skillet) I’ve enjoyed several of the other recipes.
So… back to trying out someone else’s recipe. After flipping through the book several times, running recipes by my husband I decided to make the “Chicken Milanesa with Chimichurri”. To properly test out this recipe we decided to try it out on two different test group/parties. My husband prepared it for a “boys night” and I prepared it while my sister and her husband were in town. I can truly say this recipe produces a delicious, scrumptious, lick your plate clean kind of meal.
Here’s the recipe:
My advice: If you don’t have THAT much olive oil you can fry the chicken in vegetable oil- it tastes practically the same. To make a friendlier Chimmi Churri sauce for the kids or picky adults simply blend the chimichurri sauce all the way. It’s more inviting for the kids when they don’t see large green chunks.
This recipe is delicious, succulent and a hit with two different dinner parties! If you love fried chicken, or want mind blowing recipes you should check this cookbook out.
Do you finally understand my obsession with fried chicken? What’s your favorite food?
