Many years ago with a house full of children and Saturdays on our small boat
this one would fry 2 chickens, make potato salad, stuffed eggs, a desert and cooler
full of drinks and always a big bag of chips. Vivid memory that being on the water always
makes you hungry. We would consume my lunch and still pull over at a water eating place
later in the day
where we would eat hamburgers, hotdogs, have more drinks and ice cream. Good memories of fun times. Returning home everyone slept so good that night even with sunburns.
the freezer is being slowly emptied. A few chicken thighs removed from a bag and thawed.
The only way to cook fried chicken is to soak it overnight in buttermilk, s&p and a
little cayenne pepper. Since up at 4:30, they thawed quickly and were put in the
buttermilk bath for about 7 hours.
A big bowl filled with 1 1/2 cups flour, 2 tbs or more of turmeric (good for inflammation)
sea salt, black pepper for dredging chicken. Did this several times
and then into my iron skillet with - oil on hand about half way up side of skillet,
when it starts to bubble put chicken in skillet (I am cooking just for one so everything is reduced.)
was so pleased, it looked beautiful (turmeric added color)
and was so good along with mashed potato's and made small amount of gravy
dinner complete with some frozen peas.
When chicken was done I put on a wire rack with paper towel underneath to catch drippings.
Having thoughts of next time family visits will cook this chicken.
