WHO'S THAT GIRL: A higher education obsessed foodie who is documenting her life in the kitchen. I love to cook delicious, gourmet-style foods for those I love and always welcome a challenge in the kitchen. With that challenge comes an impromptu nature. I tend to avoid following recipes to the exact, so you are not likely to find very many posted here. Being that I am a Libra and am learning to be free in the kitchen, the story always goes, "A pinch of this and a smattering of that!" Thank you for visiting -- and happy reading!

Looks Like Fried Chicken...

...but it's not! It is twice-cooked chicken. I love fried chicken. But, goodness, I do not want to eat it very often. I tried a new method, which had some pretty awesome results. I began with my spices of choice and rubbed them all over my chicken legs, placing them in a bowl. I then spritzed them with lemon, next putting them in a bowl with olive oil. This sat in the fridge for, I don't know, a half hour or so.

Next, I poached the meat, but then cooked it longer so than necessary on a very low heat. By this point, the meat was cooked completely through. I left it cool off to the point that I could handle it. At that point, I dipped each leg in eggs that I had beat until foam sat on top. Then I tossed them in a bowl of panko.

I then put the legs in the oven at 450 for about 12 minutes or so.

Delicious! I served the chicken with sriracha and a blue cheese dressing. The flavor was full and light at the same time -- without the greasy fingers fried chicken brings.


  1. Looks like it turned out pretty good. Interesting technique.

  2. This is somewhat like Chris' reverse sear technique. Track him down at cookeatshare. I confess I am now thinking about fried chicken.
