Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Mix the flour and cornmeal together in a paper sack. Place each piece of chicken in the sack and shake thoroughly to coat completely.
  2. Mix the salt, pepper and buttermilk together. Place the hush-puppy mix in another paper sack. Dip each piece of chicken in the seasoned buttermilk and then drop it into the hush-puppy mix and shake to coat thoroughly.
  3. Heat vegetable oil to 350*F, and drop each piece of cooked chicken into it. Fry until a rich golden brown. Place in a flat baking dish and place in a 325* oven for an additional 30 minutes. Serve at once, piping hot.
  4. NOTE: If you cannot obtain hush-puppy prepared mix in your store, substitute the following: 2 cups white corn meal, 2 teaspoons baking powder, 1 teaspoon onion powder, 1/4 teaspoon salt, 4 tablespoons butter. Work all together until it is a fine consistency and then use as the breading mixture as specified in the above recipe. Hush-Puppy prepared mix is a timesaving shortcut.
