Country Fried Chicken

Well this isn't the healthiest, but it's so good!

Country Fried Chicken
Jayne Swapp

1 frying chicken
3 tsp. Garlic salt
½ c. milk
1 tsp. Paprika
1 egg
¼ tsp. Poultry seasoning
1 c. flour
1 tsp. Black pepper

Blend milk and egg. Combine flour and seasonings in paper or plastic bag. Shake chicken in this seasoned flour. Dip chicken pieces in milk/egg mixture. Shake chicken a second time in seasoning mixture to coat evenly and thoroughly. Melt shortening in skillet to about ½ to 1 inch deep and heat to 350˚. Brown chicken on all sides. Reduce heat to 275˚. And continue cooking until chicken is tender, about 30-40 minutes. Do not cover. Turn chicken several times during cooking. Drain on paper towels

Search Box

I was trying to find a recipe earlier and I couldn't (took too long, dumb computer, etc...). Anyway, I decided that we really need to have a search box on the blog. Ladies, what do you think? :)

Brats with Spicy Stewed Peppers

1 large red bell pepper
1 large yellow bell pepper
1 medium jalapeno chile pepper
1 medium red onion
1/4 cup unsalted butter
1 teaspoon fennel seed
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
2 tablespoons spicy brown mustard
5 fresh bratwurst
5 large hot dog buns

Remove and discard the stems and seeds from the bell peppers and jalapeno pepper. Cut the bell peppers lengthwise into 1/3-inch strips. Finely chop the jalapeno pepper. Cut the onion in half through the stem and root ends. Cut each half crosswise into 1/2-inch slices. Melt the butter in pan. Add the peppers, onion, fennel seed, salt, and pepper. Mix well with tongs. Cook the vegetables in the pan over direct medium heat, with the lid closed as much as possible, until they are tender and golden brown in spots, 10 to 15 minutes, stirring occasionally. When the vegetables are tender, add and mustard. Mix well with tongs.

Prepare Brats per the directions on the packaging

Put the Brats in the buns, cover with the pepper mixture, top with condiments of choice (I prefer ketchup) and enjoy.
