Southern fried chicken, also known simply as fried chicken, is a dish consisting of chicken pieces which have been coated in a seasoned batter and pan-fried, deep fried, or pressure fried. The breading adds a crisp coating or crust to the exterior of the chicken while retaining juices in the meat. Broiler chickens are most commonly used.
The first dish known to have been deep fried was fritters, which were popular in the European Middle Ages. However, it was the Scottish who were the first Europeans to deep fry their chicken in fat (though without seasoning). Meanwhile, a number of West African peoples had traditions of seasoned fried chicken (though battering and cooking the chicken in palm oil). Scottish frying techniques and West African seasoning techniques were combined by enslaved Africans and African-Americans in the American South.
This is a delicious recipe for a nice Celery soup. I prefer using sour cream instead of cream to add a little tang and keep it light, though cream is delicious as well should you prefer:)
2 tablespoon olive oil, or butter
1 onion, diced
4 fat garlic cloves, rough chopped
I missed the chance to submit this in the last recipe challenge, but still thought I would share it so others could see that a "common" recipe like Fried Rice has infinite variations! Everyone has a different spin on this classic, so here's mine. My fried rice is not a one-pot affair; every...
I recently made XO Sauce. Wife and I have been eating a lot of it. I decided I wanted fried rice. But it’s raining. So I chopped everything. A quick break in weather I set up the burner, cooked the fried rice, and put away the burner. slight burn on my hand moving a hot burner out of a fast...

In the US, fried green tomatoes are a joyful part of summer, and what better way to showcase them other than putting them on a sandwich? BLTs (bacon, lettuce, and tomato) sandwiches are quite popular here in the US as well, so why not substitute the ripe, red tomato for crispy, flavorful fried...
This is a simple dish that can be used in a number of ways. I chose to use mine in BLTs (bacon, lettuce, tomato sandwich) in lieu of using ripe tomato slices and they were great like this, but these can be enjoyed on their own as an appetizer with a yummy dipping sauce like this one: Recipe -...

Making fried chicken and just wondering what the best flour to use is. Seen some recipes say to use some cornstarch with the flour and others say to add baking powder. I have potato starch should I add some of that? Would you add baking powder too? Only made fried chicken once before along time...
I’m fortunate to have a high BTU wok burner to use outdoors.
I tend to have lots of leftover rice on hand. fried rice is my go-to quick meal to burn up leftovers. Bonus points, it’s fin to make.
I’ll never tire of it.

Talking with people the last few days, apparently this dish isn't as widely known as I'd thought. They are well worth making. I made 24 to shoot this video; giving them away made me very popular with my neighbors and the rest freeze and thaw just fine, especially in an air fryer.
This southern portguese dish is traditionally made with clams but I don't like clams and always replace them with shrimp.

For this month's Mushroom Recipe Challenge I made a vegetarian substitution to one of my favorite recipes: Kimchi Fried Rice (kimchi-bokkeum-bap). The diced mushrooms will replace the need for meat in this dish, which is usually cubed pork belly or minced pork.

This recipe is very easy to make. Anchovies are one of the cheapest fish and can be found quite easily. I have used remilled semolina flour (which comes from the durum wheat) instead of white flour for a crispier result. In Italy, remilled durum wheat flour is widely used in the South...
Recently I've been trying to perfect fried chicken. I may have said before, I'm not really very adept at deep frying, but with the acquisition of a thermometer I feel things are improving greatly, though my results to date have been 'OK' but not yet my 'dream' home-fried chicken. I've...
Recently, I'm increasingly annoyed that I see the fast food fried chicken sandwich wars going on in the US online and I can't try any of them in the UK! I've taken to making my own spicy chicken sandwiches to compensate; I tend to bread in panko rather than using traditional breading or...
I've been making these for a decade, my preferred alternative to french fries. They're sliced potatoes layered either with an infused cream or flavorful stock. You can cook them in a flat dish and then fry them, but I've always liked the way the layers look when I bake it in a deep bread pan. I...
