One win, one fail.
I made this for dinner last night:
I have to admit to liking KFC. I know, I know; it’s awful and bad for me and very likely unethically produced. I didn’t say I ate it all the time – in fact, I historically only ate there once or twice a year – but I do love the taste of original recipe. I was excited, then, to find a copycat recipe and hoped that it would come close enough to keep me from my semiannual haj.
It was delicious; tender and juicy, and seasoned just enough (with my addition of a couple shakes each of garlic and onion salt). It was easy, easy, too; one bowl for the milk I dipped the chicken breasts into and one casserole dish in the oven (the breading happened in a plastic bag).
This, however? This didn’t work for me:
I got browned bits and raw bits, and ended up tipping the whole mass into a frying pan to finish them off properly. I much prefer mostly crispy hash browns over somewhat crispy, somewhat tender hash browns.
The addition of a veggie medley of carrots, pea pods, onions, and mushrooms finished the meal. It was yummy, and is sure to be added to the Chili dinner rotation.
