A little bit of chicken fried...


One thing people in the South love--fried food. They will fry anything and everything down here, and while it's definitely not stuff you want to eat on a regular basis, every once and awhile, it's pretty darn delicious. For no apparent reason, Cam and I decided to make a very Southern dinner last night (and then had the leftovers tonigh!) He has been wanting to try to make Alton Brown's fried chicken recipe for awhile now (since Cam loves AB and thinks he's a genius...which is true), so he decided to fry up the chicken drumsticks we had in our freezer. Alton Brown's recipe uses a delicious blend of smoked paprika and other spices, giving the fried chicken a nice reddish color. I made some buttermilk biscuits to use up the extra buttermilk we had on hand from making the chicken. Not to toot my own horn, but these biscuits were DELISH, and the perfect complement to the chicken. (We did have roasted asparagus (so random I know) with our chicken and biscuits, so the meal wasn't completely unhealthy...right?) So while this isn't a meal that will be making the menu rotation again for awhile, it was super yummy, and I figure when in Rome!
