Kentucky Fried Wanna-Be
I love fried chicken. I think I got my taste for it when I would go to my grandmother’s house and she fried it in a wonderful black cast iron skillet. That chicken would be perfect every time. I have two skillets of my own. One is for grill marks and the other is just a regular round skillet. I haven’t done too much frying in the round skillet but I gave it a run for its money last weekend.
Hubby went to the commissary and on the list was wings, family pack-please. I had it in my head that I would have him grill them outside. The weather has been really warm lately and it’s time to fire that bad boy up and get it going. Two weekends ago, we grilled pizzas. Too yummy.
I got home from work and decided that I really didn’t want to cook so I would have hubby fetch some KFC. NO money, so I had to cook. I decided that I wanted my wings both fried and BBQed. So I whipped out my skillet and tried to emulate my grandmother’s fried chicken.
I cut the wing tips off and made stock with them. I can’t waste any parts! Then, I put s&p on them, dipped them in a beaten egg, and dredged them in flour. A few minutes in the oil (about 20) and they were done. I did this cycle four times. It takes a while so no need to be in a hurry.
Once the chicken was fried, I put it on a paper towel to drain. I didn’t really care if it got cold, because I knew it was going to be dunked and then grilled.
Here is the finished product…..
