Northern Fried Chicken

READY IN: 50mins
Recipe by threeovens

This recipe comes from "Blue Ribbon," a restaurant in NYC. It was featured in "Saveur" magazine. At the restaurant it is served with collard greens that are quickly sauteed in brown butter, a technique they invented when they ran out of greens and had to come up with something quickly!

Never had chicken come out with such a beautiful color, taste was great. This is about the way I always do chicken but never used just the white of the egg with a bit of water which must be the reason for the beautiful color. I used about a 1/4 cup of panko had no matzo. I always cook about 20 min. & use crisco which really makes a difference. brown than cover and keep turning. Great tasting chicken with a beautiful color. Thank you so much for this post.
