Crispy Fried Chicken with Potato Wedges

Being so emotional yesterday makes me crave for food. You know what they say is true, when you feel stress and problematic you think of food, you feel like you can eat anything. But this entry is not solely because I was quite stress yesterday but also I want to share something delish and easy to make "Baked Potato Wedges" and "Crispy Fried Chicken".


 First stop -  we have here my favorite "Crispy Fried Chicken", me and my husband loved it. Crispy in the outside but soft and tasty in the inside.

The Ingredients : Chicken breast
                             Bread crumbs (Italian)
                             Italian Herbs - optional if you will use plain bread crumbs
                             Flour
                            2 Eggs
                             Salt and Pepper
                             Vegetable Oil for frying
The Directions: Slice the chicken breast thinly or according to your preferences.
                          Put the flour, bread crumbs and eggs separately in each bowl or plates. Seasoned the sliced chicken with salt and pepper.
                          To prepare the chicken this is how you gonna do; put the chicken in your first  plate of flour, then dump it in your egg wash and lastly to your plate of bread crumbs.
                          Put the oil in the frying pan, wait for few minutes and make sure the oil is ready and hot before you put the coated and breaded chicken. Fry them at least 2 to 3 minutes both sides or until it's golden brown. Enjoy!

And now the second one - the side dish - "Potato Wedges" this is by the way my first time baking a potato which I really enjoyed. But there are some things that I've learned in baking this potato. First, don't cut it too thinly and second, don't over baked to the point that you burned them. It really taste bad, you don't wanna eat burned food right?

The Ingredients: Potato
                           Vegetable oil or Olive oil
                           Salt and Pepper ( 1 teaspoon )
                           Rosemary ( 1 teaspoon )
                           Paprika ( 1 teaspoon )
                           Garlic Salt (1/2 teaspoon )
                           Italian Herb - optional
The Directions: Slice the potato and put it in a microwave for at least 5 to 6 minutes. If you don't have microwave you can boil them for at least 5 to 8 minutes and then put them in a paper towel to dry.
                         Mix the vegetable oil, salt and pepper, rosemary, paprika, garlic salt and Italian herb in a big bowl or in a sealed plastic bag and then put all the sliced potatoes inside the bag and marinade for 10 minutes. The other option for this if you don't want your spices a little bit burned you can add them after you baked your potatoes for 25 minutes because you need to flip the other side then bake them for 20 to 25 minutes again. Either way, it can always taste good at the end.
                           Bake the potatoes in 425 to 450 degrees F for 20 to 25 minutes each sides or until golden brown. Then served with crispy fried chicken, enjoy!

Have a great day folks! #PicturePerfect #HolidaySeason countdown...
