Did you hear abt that MJB Burger King commercial? The one where she single-handedly set black people aaaaaaaaaallllllll the way back? I’m talmbout like way back! Waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay back! Past slavery!!!
You can find a link to the ad here.
Since Burger King already pulled the ad, I’m not sure how long the commercial will be at that link. But in case you missed it, just believe me when I tell you that MJB get the of a lifetime award for that one!
But serious up tho I cannot stop singing that damn song! ‘Wrrrrrrrrapped up in a….Flowa tore-tee-yuh!!!!!!!!!!’ lol!
Aaaaaaaaaaaand why was her hair layed like rock-a-doodle tho? 0_0
So wrong…on so many levels!
In the spirit of today’s post, I thought I’d post a recipe for fried chicken of the crispy variety.
- a whole chicken, cut up into the 8 pieces (2 of each: wings, legs, thighs and breasts)
- oil for frying
- 3c buttermilk
- 2 1/2 c flour
- 2 eggs, beaten
- 1/4 tsp cayenne pepper
- dash of hot sauce
- 2 tsp cinnamon
- 3 tbsp paprika
- 1 tsp thyme
- 2 tbsp garlic powder
- 2 tbsp onion powder
- 1 tsp salt
- 1/2 tsp black pepper
Place washed and cleaned chicken in an air-tight container and season with all of the spices thoroughly. Pour the buttermilk over the chicken to cover it and wrap it in plastic wrap. Refrigerate it for at least 2 hours but overnight is best.
Preheat a heavy cast-iron skillet over medium high heat in order to heat the oil. But don’t make it too hot or it will burn and the chicken will be crispy on the outside but raw in the inside.
Once you remove the chicken let the excess buttermilk drain off but do not rinse it off. Add a dash of buttermilk to the eggs and coat the chicken before coating it in the flower. Fry the chicken until golden brown and crispy on each side, no more than 6 mins for larger pieces.
Remove from the oil and drain on paper towels. You can season with salt and pepper if you want.
