Tonight I made Fried Chicken with Red Beans and rice. Normally I am the only one that eats the red beans.. but tonight I told the 10 year old I would give him $1 to try some. He was scared it would be too spicy (I use Zatarains)
anyway he tried some, said it was ok, finished his chicken and then had a helping of red beans and rice and then had seconds ... on the plus side he is now open to new food.. on the negative side , I have competition for the red beans and rice
Fried chicken - I use 2 cups flour, some paprika, chili powder, onion salt, garlic powder (not garlic salt), black pepper, dried mustard, several other spices - I soak the chicken in a egg and milk bath and then toss it into the seasoning. I coat it and put it on a plate after a few minutes I toss them back into the seasoning mix.
I use a cast iron kettle and have about 3 inches of oil going... I fry it until the center is 160 degrees

We have an old West Bend (?) electric skillet from back in the lae 60's.
Cut up chicken goes into the milk/egg liquid, . . . then into the flour/corn meal where it is rolled around big time.
Put it in the skillet with a little salt N pepper, . . . fry till golden brown all over, . . .
Great stuff, . . . reminds me way too much of Mom's. Sometimes the eyeballs tend to leak a bit while eating the chicken.
May God bless,

Excellent MM excellent!
Next time add some Andouille sausage to the red beans, a sweet onion and some Tony Chechere's seasoning https://www.tonychachere.com/
and you have a great meal. Fried Chicken is just a bonus. If you want to cheat a bit, use some Blue Runner canned Red Beans
Red beans and rice, and fried chicken! Dinner at MM's house! I am pretty sure I can out muscle a 10 year old for his share.

Sounds good. We sub out the rice for cornbead in this part of God's Country. Now we do eat Spanish Rice with mexican food. Not sure why they call it Spanish Rice cause there aint been no Spaniards in this part of the world in 400 years or so. Guess it sounds more political correct than Mexican Rice.
... and now that you got him eating 'new' stuff, your wallet will be a bit lighter and easier for you to carry around.

Slippy's Famous Gluten Free Fried Chicken Strips
Cut chicken breasts into strips
Take Rice Flour and dump a handful into a paper bag.
Add Salt, Pepper, Lemon-Pepper and Tony Chechere's Seasoning
Toss chicken strips into bag and shake it like a polaroid picture
Heat veggie oil to 375 degrees. Drop chicken strips into oil and fry for around 15 minutes. The lightly coated chicken comes out light and tender with not a lot of flour coating.
When finished drain the oil and take the drippings and add some milk and a bit of rice flour to make a roux-gravy. Add some pepper and you have a nice dipping sauce for your chicken strips.
Give it a try! You'll say "Thanks Slippy"!
I'll say "that's Colonel Slippy to you knuckleheads"!
