Southern Comforts Buttermilk Fried Chicken!

Ladies and Gentleman, here is our recipe for our award winning Buttermilk Fried Chicken w/ Warm Bleu Cheese Slaw and Milk Pepper Gravy.

Start off by taking two boneless, organic, hormone-free chicken breasts (your local supermarket will have them) and soak in buttermilk overnight in your refrigerator – please make sure they are completely covered.

In a mixing bowl take 2 cups of self rising flour and mix with 1T of sea salt, 1/2 T of ground black pepper, 1 T of granulated onion, 1 T of granulated garlic, 1tsp of cayenne pepper, 1 tsp of paprika and 1tsp of cumin.

In a sauté skillet, place 1 cup of canola or olive oil and heat to around 300 degrees or until the oil is completely clear – don’t heat up too high or it will burn. Place your chicken breasts in the flour mixture and cover on all sides. Place in the skillet and brown on both sides. When brown, place chicken on a baking tray and place in the oven preheated to 350 degrees for about 15 minutes.

While the chicken is cooking, shred 1/4 head of green cabbage, and sauté with 1T of butter. While the cabbage is still crunchy, add1/4 cup of bleu cheese crumbles and 1 T of heavy cream. Cook for two to four minutes, or until it begins to thicken a little (we call that Nape) and divide cabbage between two dinner plates.

In the same skillet, add 1 cup of heavy cream, 1tsp of sea salt and a couple of cranks on your fresh pepper mill (if you don’t have a pepper mill then 1 tsp of ground black pepper will work). Reduce in the pan until Nape as well.

Place your cooked chicken breast on top of the bed of cabbage, and pour your milk gravy on top of your chicken.

Garnish with chopped parsley or a little paprika and voila! Our award winning Buttermilk Fried Chicken w/ Warm Bleu Cheese Slaw and Milk Pepper Gravy – your family, friends and/or dinner guests will think you’re a southern chef!
