Labor Day Weekend Eats Part II: Football Eats
Yesterday, I went over to my parents' house to watch some games - specifically the UCLA-Houston game - with my dad. That's as good a reason as any to break out the unhealthy snacks, right?
I diced up a couple of breasts of chicken into pieces that I felt would last two bites, and rolled them in flour. Next I dragged them through an egg wash, the rolled them in Panko bread crumbs. They fried in a pot of 350-degree oil, taking less than four minutes for each batch.
They were fantastic: crispy and juicy, the exact opposite of any store-bought popcorn chicken. I whipped up a sauce on the side - mayo, Sriracha and cilantro - that went perfectly with the chicken. Of all the things I made yesterday, these were the only ones that completely disappeared.
UCLA lost, but what else is new? For several years now the highlight of watching their games has been the food I make during the games.
