Since yesterday...when looking at my calendar....I was toying with the idea of advertising the rest of the chickens on craigslist.
My heart was not in butchering 19 chickens all by myself. Then I remembered I had a whole bird in the fridge that I had put in to marinade last night. I had to cook it tonight.
I decided on fried. I mixed flour, italian bread crumbs, salt, pepper and coriander. I fried it in my cast iron and I wish I could explain my change of mind. As soon as I began to smell it cooking...as soon as I cut my first piece and the juice squirted out...as soon as I took that first bite.....my mind changed.
I will be investing in a good industrial vacume sealer soon. I want fried chicken this winter.
