An Imposter


Sometimes I have a craving for fried chicken – who doesn’t?  Sometimes when that happens, I’ll just go to KFC or Publix and get a tender meal to go. I hate frying but since I discovered the convenience and beauty of using a Fry Daddy, frying is so much easier and it’s not messy at all. I wouldn’t do it any other way.

It’s funny, my Mom didn’t fry much either. Well, she did some pan frying but not a lot of deep frying. And when she did, she’d use a cast iron skillet or Dutch oven. No matter what, there would be grease all over the stove top. No so with the Fry Daddy!

So, to satisfy that recent craving, I had some chicken cutlets, all the spices, and I just happened to have some buttermilk on hand. Perfect opportunity to try this recipe which is said to be very much like KFC’s recipe. I’ll let you decide if that is true or not. Regardless, it’s really good.

The beauty of fried chicken is you can have it for dinner and if there are any leftovers, it’s perfect for lunch the next day chopped on top of a mixed green salad or you can take it on a picnic.

Bon appétit!
