Having fun with it

Cobbler’s made and the cake’s are done. Salad’s chilling and coolers are stocked.

Oldest boy smoked up two pork loins last night and I’ve got chicken soaking in buttermilk*, ready to be slow-fried shortly.

My tune’s are playing and the house is shining.

We can hear songbirds singing and I’m sure I saw Frankie smile.

Yep, today’s the day:  Aunts and Uncles, cousins and friends.  And birthday doings for grand-daughter MJ who just turned 3.

Summer gatherings are what summer’s all about!

MJ’s Buttermilk Fried Chicken:

delicious!

Soak chicken pieces in buttermilk overnight.  Don’t keep buttermilk around? Make some, it’s easy! Measure 1 tbsp of vinegar into a 1 cup container and fill the cup with milk. Stir, let stand for 5 min, then pour over chicken pieces. Double if necessary.

In a separate zip-lock bag or bowl, pour in a generous amount of “Kentucky Kernel Seasoned Flour” and dredge one piece of chicken at a time, coating all sides.  Remove and place the pieces on a cookie sheet covered in waxed paper.  When all are coated, place chicken pieces one by one into hot oil.  (I prefer Canola oil and use a large electric roaster set at 400.).

Generally speaking, I use enough oil to cover the bottom of the pan but not enough to drown the chicken.  Next, add sliced onions, fresh garlic and seasonings.  Cover the pan with the lid, crank up the Bee Gees and return about 30 minutes later to turn the chicken. Once both sides are browned, lower the heat and let the delicious goodness simmer for up to 3 hours. The chicken will be tender, crispy and fall-off-the-bone good.  And if that doesn’t make you get up and dance, I don’t know what will!

How about you … do you have “fun with it” when you entertain?
