Blogstalking – Dinner preparation

So, since I was planning to make one of my favorite recipes anyway, I decided to make it my blogstalking post for the week. So, without further ado, Alton Brown’s Fried Chicken, a photo essay.

Two chickens, dismantled.
A buttermilk bath.
A coating of spices.
A dredging of flour.
A rest.
A hot oil bath.
Halfway to heaven.
Golden brown and delicious.

    Omigod – my mouth was literally watering as I read your post! I love Alton Brown – Willow and I watch him together all the time as it is something me and the 4 year old can watch together and understand… and it isn’t a bloody cartoon!

  • Bezzie

    Oh man, delicious! But no scientific commentary like Alton Brown? 😉

    I wish it wasn’t so hot here, I’d totally be frying some chicken tonite!

  • bradyphrenia

  • bryghtrose

    YUM! I love AB’s recipes, but I’ve yet to make his fried chicken. That’s one of my favorite episodes. I’m starving now….

  • hellahelen

    OMG YOU MADE ME HUNGRY!!! What kind of spices? What kind of oil? How long is the buttermilk bath? Is that a standard-issue cast iron frying pan I spy?

    So–do you serve this deliciousness with homemade mashed potatoes and country gravy, like my coworker did every Sunday as her kids were growing up?


  • Rebekah

    Yum. don’t you just love Alton.
