It had been a while since I did some frying in the outdoor fryer so I decided to fry some chicken today. I bought a couple of whole chickens, cut them up, seasoned them with my homemade Cajun Seasoning and put them to marinate in some buttermilk and about a half cup of Tabsaco sauce.
While that was doing it's thing I made a little homemade mayo for some potato salad.
I almost forgot that I juiced a couple of blood oranges and diced up half of a large jalapeno pepper and put that to simmer for making a glaze for the fried chicken for those that wanted it. Also added some diced tasso to give it a bit of smokiness to it and then some honey to sweeten the spiciness.
Of course it was about time to have a nice cold beer.
Potato salad tasting delicious!
Something else I wanted to make and today was boudin balls and since I had the fryer going I did.
Well, Just as well batter up some pickle slices and toss them in the hot oil too.
Some of the chicken in the fryer.
You know what else would be good? Some fresh cut sweet potato fries.
Biscuits would go really well with this meal so I whipped up a quick batch and did them a little differently and quick.
When all was said and done this was a pretty darn good meal!
