Been experimenting with Hillbilly Southern Fried Chicken recently. I've been researching different styles of FC, while also trying to "bust" the 11 herbs and spices SECRET. It's a pretty easy secret to bust, and I've been trying different proportions of ingredients.

This is the first really over-the-top recipe, it's buttermilk soaked with my own special herb recipe, and HOLY JUMPING JEHOSHAPHAT it was THE YUM:


I had buttermilk left over, so I made buttermilk donuts:

I soaked overnight, yup, and I actually tried a new version yesterday based on a REALLY old Civil War era recipe, but it didn't work at all.

I'm trying a new one maybe tomorrow, and won't stop until it's freakin' awesome. The two school of buttermilk fried chicken are:

1. Soak. Dredge in flour. Fry. Eat.
2. Soak. Dredge. Soak again quickly. Dredge AGAIN(!). Fry. Eat.

I'm not going to form any preconceptions about what tastes best until I actually do it. Ya never know.

"Narrow Face"?!?!?! Really?!?!?!? Hahahahah!

Cammo...My Brother in Law was in the Army and when he was in Korea and Georgia, he was around a lot of good ole southern boys and that was the term used for Chicken...I loved it.

I have seen many cooks these days doing a salt brine on the chicken overnight/rinsing the next day and then soaking in Buttermilk...never tried it but they swear by it.

Here is our latest...homemade Calzones using Rhodes bread dough (not pizza dough) and filled w/ sauteed Mushrooms/Peppers/Onions, Black Olives, Pepperoni, Italian Sausage and Mozz/Provolone/Parm Cheese blend w/ a zesty sauce. The one one marked w/ the mushroom on top also had Hot Banana Peppers. A NYC Italian explosion of flavor. OGR

Those Cal-freakin-zones look TASTEEEE.

You're right about the chicken brine, and I'm experimenting with what's called a "Buttermilk Brine" which is 1/2 water, 1/2 buttermilk, salt, etc., overnight soak. Best of both worlds.

Will post results today. Buzzy's invited to lunch, mostly because I want it taste-tested by a guy whose professional name is Buzzy.

So Buzzy came over for lunch and we tried pretty much every Fried Narrow Face variation you can think of, and I think we nailed the perfect recipe.

Here's the winner:


It tastes great, has a controllable crispiness on the outside, and is pretty healthy all things considered.

I was using chicken breast strips for testing simplicity and clinical uniformity, this would be amazing on a full drumstick or skin-on bone-in chopped-up breastmeat.

As Buzzy also pointed out, the fryer (how deep, how hot, type of oil used) has a lot to do with it. I think he wants to test the next version with his own pro deep-fryer.

And - I'm thinking of making a book of Hillbilly Recipes for Oasis. It will have at least these three recipes:

1. Buttermilk Fried Narrow Face
2. Buttermilk Donuts
3. Chess Pie

Any other recipes anybody want me to include? You get a free book if your recipe goes in!!!!
