Fried Chicken

Skin on chicken parts ( we like breasts and wings)

2 cups flour

1 tsp. baking powder

1tsp. onion powder

1 tsp. garlic powder

salt and pepper


I soak my chicken in buttermilk and dip in batter and lay on a baking rack let sit for about 10 to 15 min. Have iron skillet hot with oil 1/2 way of chicken. Fried until one side is brown turn over and turn down the heat, cover and let cook about 30 minutes or until done, I test mine and take out when temp. reaches 160 degrees. But, last few minutes on frying add 1/4 cup water and put lid back on and let steam

Green Peas

1 bag frozen green peas

1 small onion chopped

2 or 3 slices bacon cooked crisp

1 tablespoon bacon grease or olive oil

Sautee onions in bacon grease and add peas, 1/2 cup chicken broth, cook til tender add butter if you like and sprinkle bacon over the top for garnish and yumminess.

MY mash potatoes are just  made with butter and sour cream for creamy mash taters

Buttermilk Biscuits

2 cups all purpose flour

2 tsp. baking powder

1/4 tsp. soda

1 tsp. salt

1/2 cup shortening

1 cup buttermilk  add a little more if needed.

Combine all dry ingredients, add shortening and work into flour with a fork or with your hands. Now add buttermilk and fold in gently. don’t overwork the dough. Roll out and cup with a biscuit cutter or a glass will work. dip in flour before cutting.
