That’s one of “Baby Girl’s” favorite sayings. My “Dude Gene” was in gear tonight and as a result, tonight’s dinner was an epic failure.
After deep-frying those delicious treats on Sunday, I decided to try my hand at some chicken strips. After all, I had that little fryer already full of oil. So I gave it a try and it was nasty. That’s right I said nasty! In the middle of the process I saw it was going so poorly that I called Matt and instructed him to stop on the way home at the local chicken spot and pick up a box of chicken strips. Yeah, it was that bad.
I sliced, cleaned, dredged in floured but wound up with what looked like naked deep fried chicken. Every stitch of flour just fell off the meat as it cooked. I later learned, via a dear friend, that I should have soaked the strips in an egg wash before dredging in flour.
There will be no picture posted or handy link to the web sight that I used as a guide. Nor will I mention the friend whom tried to give me advise on the matter. We will simply forget that this ever happened and pack that little fryer back in the box, set it high up on a shelve in the pantry and forget that its there.
I’m a grill guy I guess…
