Momma’s Fried Chicken 7


I cannot say fried chicken without hearing the words in my head, “Fried chicken and watermelon.  Mmm. MMMM!!!”  You have to say that with a deeply Southern accent, and enjoy your food with as much gusto!!

My mom used to make fried chicken this way, and I thought it was a perfect July 4th entree!!  Add some BBQ baked beans, potato salad, fresh corn on the cob, and don’t you dare forget the watermelon!

Homemade ice cream would also just fit the bill.  I love homemade ice cream.  I am very likely making some this weekend!! Hopefully a post soon to come.  My Grandma used to make ice cream and she was known for her famous vanilla.  She also had an orange cream-o ice cream that we would drool over, but somehow that recipe has been lost!  Ahh!  Too bad she didn’t have a blog.  She was a much better cook than I am.  If you have an amazing orange creme ice cream recipe, be sure to leave me a note!  I am on the hunt.

Anyway, on to the chicken.  There are four basic steps:

      It does make for a tasty entree!! Plus, I don’t feel so guilty about eating that “fried” when it bakes for a while. I think it makes it much more tender! Thanks Keitha for stopping by and for hosting Tasty Tuesdays. Have a beautiful day!
