Chicken Fried What? A New Food Crush
Chicken breast, marinated and baked, is a staple at our dinner table. John usually makes it, and really knows what he's doing! It's delicious. When the kids were young and health wasn't much of a concern, I would coat and fry chicken legs, for traditional Fried Chicken. Rolling them in beaten eggs, and then in seasoned flour with plenty of pepper, right before popping them in the hot oil. So, anyhow, that is the method that is used on small beef steaks to come up with a dish I have never actually tasted, Chicken Fried Steak. But my point, and I actually do have one, it that this morning I found out the the "Chicken Fried" method of cooking is not limited to Chicken or Steak - this morning for breakfast at one of my favorite Tulsa restaurants Smoke On Cherry Street, I had Waffles with Chicken Fried Bacon. Yep - Chicken Fried Bacon! Was it good? Well, for starters, it's Bacon, so yum - then it has this crunchy, peppery coating. In fact it was so good that there aren't any pictures of it - it didn't stay on the plate long enough for the camera lens to focus. Just one more good thing about Oklahoma!
