My fear of fried chicken
Growing up in Kentucky, you’d think I’d be pretty good at fryin’ up some chicken. Heck, I’ve even been to the birthplace of Colonel Sanders’ famous recipe. For some reason, fried chicken and I have issues. I have problems with the oil temperature. I find a way to splatter oil on every wall in the kitchen.
Along with my fried chicken disasters (do you see the oil on my backsplash?), now I’ll have the pressure of the cameras and live broadcast. I hope I’m not that chef who ends up with raw chicken, a chopped finger or a grease fire. The producers already advised me to have a fire extinguisher and first-aid kit nearby. It’s like they already know me.
I received a copy of Krissi’s recipe in advance, and let me just say it is absolutely going to be Zestuous. She’s not afraid of flavor. I’m looking forward to cooking alongside her to learn some helpful tips on how to do chicken right.
If you’re new to Zestuous, welcome. I’m Christie, coming to you from the wonderful culinary city of Las Vegas. You are now officially a Zestie. Through this blog, I share my experiences of eating around the world as an Army wife. I develop recipes based on my travels in Europe, Asia and the good ol’ USA. I invite you to pour yourself a glass of wine and browse around. You can also find me all over social media:
Mystery Box Challenge
I’ve been playing along with the challenge at home. You can see the recipes I’ve created at http://www.zestuous.com/category/mbc/.
The chefs are planning to reveal a very intriguing mystery box June 19. The promos for the show, which airs at 8 pm on FOX, have me nervous for the next challenge. I can’t wait to tune in to see what’s inside.
