I will be going through my 'Zaar books and moving some recipes here, just to get more specific. This can include Cajun, Creole, Traditional, and Decadent. Hopefully, photos for all recipes, because I am visually tempted when it comes to recipes!
This recipe was inspired by a Recipezaar thread where I requested Zaar Southerners to suggest their favorite Southern recipes. Talk about Southern hospitality -- what a response! I learned a lot -- I think I'm part Southerner now! About the stuffing: It does not call for broth, as the cornbread is on the moist side, even after toasting. I like a more crumbly stuffing, and find that the chicken exudes plenty of moisture to make it just right.
On a rare occasion we have leftover mashed potatoes. Using recipe #27361 (the BEST), I added a modern twist to my mom's old Southern recipe. Increase or decrease onion, garlic, hot sauce, and S&P as to your preference. Crispy on the outside, soft on the inside. Bet you can't eat just one!
This recipe yields the best tasting greens I have ever eaten! I have yet to have a batch of bitter greens when cooked this way. This recipe has the potential to change the minds of green-haters and may even bring about a cute southern accent. Blanching the greens before adding to the slow cooker helps remove the natural bitterness. I usually make it with kale and beet greens but other greens work as well. The greens pair well with pilsner or an off-dry riesling, especially if you use the balsamic vinegar.
This is a "no-fail" recipe for people who have trouble making good fried chicken. It averts the problem of the coating falling off, it's very tender, and it's big on flavor. There are three "tricks" here that make this recipe so successful: "dusting" the chicken ahead of time, using Crisco, and not "crowding" the chicken in the skillet. If there are certain herbs or spices that suit you better than the ones listed, go ahead and make changes but remember that not all of it gets on the chicken as you dredge it so you'll usually add more (about twice as much) than if you were putting it directly on the chicken as it cooks. Good luck and good eats!
IN MEMORY OF MY MOM. This chicken, taught to me by my Mom when I was about 12 years old, was the way everyone I knew did it in Mississippi and Georgia. I hope you like it. It has a crispy, huge thick coating with the southern "touch" (the magical ingredients being the vinegar and baking powder) and tender inside. Oh ! my ! never a chicken like this.
Red hot cinnamon candies have been 1 of my favorite ingredients since my childhood & this is the 1st of 2 recipes I'm entering that feature them. I found this at allrecipes.com & it was posted by SMTHJG who said "My grandmother used to make this simple sweet-spicy dish every yr for the holidays. It's so delicious that you'll want to make it all yr." I agree w/her & hope you will as well. Just imagine this dish along side a lovely glazed ham! Yum!
This is a great way to use leftover turkey or chicken. This is pot pie how my grandma makes it. Turkey and vegetables with a creamy gravy and biscuit topping. Great comfort food. Changed to add: If you can't find Veg-al, frozen mixed veggies is fine. I often add leftover green beans or corn on top of the veggies.
From About Southern U.S. Cuisine website. This recipe makes some delicious black-eyed peas for New Years Day or anytime of the year. A true southern delight. Note: you can use chicken broth in place of some of the water for more flavor.
This is how my Granny made sweet tea and it is some kind of sweet. Know that and beware. Pa-Paw used to down 2-3 glasses after working in the garden all day. Back off the sugar if you can't handle it. This one is for true southerners only ;)
Better than fast food takeout, brining is the key to this tender juicy chicken, any leftovers can be stuffed in between a crusty bun topped with mayo, mustard and a leaf of lettuce, this also works well using bone-on chicken pieces but frying time will need to be adjusted --- plan ahead the chicken needs to soak in the buttermilk for 8-24 hours (24 hours is even better). Try to purchase large thick chicken breasts for this to make the slicing in half easier, use a sharp knife for slicing. I usually serve this with my recipe #149547 --- if you cannot find Old Bay seasoning, use 2 teaspoons of seasoning salt in place of regular salt --- you will *love* this fried chicken! :)
