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.

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