Well as I scrolled through Pinterest and I found this recipe!! Wow! I showed the hubby and it was decided that we should have this for dinner.
Since we decided upon this we had to go to the grocery store to get buttermilk, sriracha sauce, coleslaw, and buns. Yummy here I come!!
My luck of spicy is not the greatest so I decided to only do half the desired cayenne pepper. Hopefully it was still be yummy and not burn my face off.
The bacon will be cooked later. First I must deal with the chicken.
I decided to cut the breasts in half and do six smaller chickens. The recipe said to do a full breast for four breasts. I did three and made it into six-ish servings.
When doing the smashing I got out the smaller of my two rollers. The hubby was next to me and he said, “Use the bigger one.”
I said, “I want to use this smaller one, in case it breaks.”
Him: “You don’t have to worry about that, you won’t have that much force…”
Me: “SMASH! Smash! Smash!” -the hubby walked off. Since one of my hits, broke off a piece of chicken from its whole. 😂 haha!
We have gotten to the point that one pizza can feed all three of us. It should be able to feed another person but the hubby was hungry…one piece for Eli, two for me, and the rest to the crazy eating machine!
The recipe said to let it marinate for at least four hours. So I will be back in a bit to complete this blog…
Prepare the coleslaw and let it sit for a bit in the fridge.
I know some people are not a fan…I wasn’t either, but now I love it on certain foods!
🥵 wow! That sauce is killer…as in melt my head off!! I split the concoction in half and added way more honey!!
We got this pot from someone who was moving…best pot ever! Sturdy and free!!
That’s a lie!! Coat that chicken with the flour mixture, until you think it can no longer take anymore…then add more!!
That is for one sandwich… maybe next time I’ll cut the chicken breasts into thirds…
I also found out, that you should never place fried chicken on paper towels; it ruins the crunch. So I used my cookie rack.
Tunes are key to a successful dinner!! 😎
I know this is strange, but as I’m writing this post, the song, “Let’s Get It On,” came to my brain…haha 😅
It will be a challenge, but somehow this sandwich is going to fit in my mouth. 🤨
Looks Like Photo: 10! My sandwich is taller but that perfectly fine. Bigger is better!!
Taste: 10!!! 100!! Wow! It was amazing! Worth the wait and time! But for my sandwich I put the coleslaw on top of the chicken and bacon. My bun was not soggy!!
Easiness: 8…since there was lots to do and it did take some time. But I will say…it was easier than making orange chicken. Will definitely be making this again!!
I’m currently in a food coma… Enjoy your day! I will be trying to move…in the next hour…or more…🥱
One thought on “Journey With Cookbooks #23”
Try coleslaw on fish tacos, it’s yummy!
