I am a sucker for fried chicken but rarely eat it. It’s so tasty….but I have to keep health issues in mind so….if I am going to indulge, go all out, right?! This isn’t a great opener to review a cookbook but c’mon….as responsible adults we know fried food doesn’t need to be on the menu every week.
Fried chicken is a comfort food for me. If it’s done correctly it’s moist, flavorful and you eat more than you should. This book is dedicated to lovely fried chicken ……mmmmmmmmmm.
Chicken and waffles has become very popular lately, have you noticed that? First time I ever heard of it was at Ft Stewart Army post and now I see it in frozen sections at Costco and on menus. The version in this book doesn’t use frozen waffles, you make them from scratch. I’ve never tried that combo but I am always willing to try something once.
This cookbook has great photos that accompany most of the recipes. Gets your mouth watering. The Mexican-Lime Fried Chicken Tacos are certainly on my wish list. There are several traditional type chicken recipes but there are also a good sampling of Indian, Asian and Spanish takes on this traditional Southern fare. Included are recipes for condiments, sauces and side dishes.
Overall I would give this specialty cookbook an A+
