Yes, my post really is about chicken.
And it has nothing to do with pregnancy or babies.
Ok, I'm full of shit, my post is just about fried chicken.
While watching The Help on my flight out to NYC a few weeks ago I decided I should make fried chicken one night when I got back home.
Once home I promptly forgot.
Then about a week ago I got out of my car at Safeway and there was this heavenly scent in the air...fried chicken!
Oh right, I was going to make fried chicken!
So, Saturday when we planned out our weekly meals (this is new for us btw and AWESOME, I highly recommend weekly meal planning!) I threw fried chicken on the list for Thursday night.
Now here we are, it's Thursday and I'm left with one small problem.
I HAVE NO IDEA HOW TO MAKE FRIED CHICKEN.
I've never made fried chicken before.
It's not that hard is it?
I've looked up a bunch of recipes and I've decided it goes something like this.
Heat some oil in a frying pan.
Make an egg wash, coat chicken in the egg wash and flour and fry.
But is that all there is to it?
I also HATE touching raw chicken!!! How am I going to coat the chicken in an egg wash and flour without touching it?
Maybe I should just say screw the chicken and order some pizza.
I know there must be some southern ladies out there (talk about a stereotype! ALL southerners know how to fry chicken clearly =) Anyone have some fried chicken tips? Or great fried chicken recipes?
