An Inexpensive Fried Chicken Dinner With A Kick
(NAPSA) - Fried chicken may be a down-home tradition during football season, but it didn't begin in the South. Fried chicken was known as pollo fritto in Italy and Ga Xao in Vietnam before it became a culinary habit in the Southern United States. But with food prices soaring, you can still create a delicious fried chicken dinner for friends and family on game day for less than $10. You can give your fried chicken a kick by using both ground peanuts and a special soybean and peanut frying oil blend.
Place oil in a large fryer, Dutch oven or another thick-walled iron cooking pot with a tight-fitting lid; heat to 350!. Combine 1 cup flour, 2 teaspoons salt and pepper in a shallow dish, stirring well with a whisk.
Place remaining 1/3 cup flour and nuts in a food processor; process until finely ground. Add peanut mixture to flour mixture, stirring well.
Combine buttermilk and eggs in a shallow dish, stirring well. Season chicken evenly with remaining 1 teaspoon salt; dredge in flour mixture. Dip chicken in buttermilk mixture; dredge in flour again.
Fry chicken in hot oil 15 minutes or until golden; move to a paper towel-lined plate. Serve immediately.
