Buffalo Fried Chicken with Buffalo Gravy
I was feeling like fried chicken and gravy but the weather turned hot and the thought of typical country fried chicken and gravy with biscuit sounded a bit, well, blah.
I took the chicken, cutting it into tiny strips and marinated in a mix of buffalo hot sauce and milk.
In one bowl, I put flour with salt and pepper. In another bowl I put eggs mixed with Buffalo hot sauce. In another bowl, I put cracker crumbs mixed with 2 tsp of Cowboy Spice Company Sweet Heat.
I dipped chicken into flour mix, egg mix, then cracker spice mix. I heated up the oil and fried it.
I made a gravy with a roux of 2 T butter, 3 T flour, and when it was golden, I added 3/4 c milk, 1/4 c. buffalo sauce and 1/4 c. chicken broth. If gravy gets too thick while heating, add more milk.
I put the chicken on the plate with an open biscuit, added some of the cracklings from frying pan to the gravy and put that over the chicken and biscuit. Then, drizzled with ranch dressing.
This was a pretty mind-blowing experience!
