Cooking with JP

Tri This - No. 2
By JP Severin

Fried chicken is one of those staple foods that everyone who is anyone loves. It is as American as the flag... or Ted Nugent. Show your national pride and get cooking… This patriotic bear is doing his part. I have scoured the world over, sniffing out fried chicken wherever it may hide, and I think I can safely say this is some kickin’ chicken.


A lot of Siracha (chili paste)
5 tbsps Sugar
1 tbsp Salt
2 tbsp Garlic powder
20 oz water

5 eggs
2 bowls full of flour mixed with curry, garlic salt, and sugar
As much chicken as you want
Some sort of oil (canola or peanut)

combine brine ingredients in a big bag and let the chicken sit over night
Take chicken out and place in flour
Cover the floured chicken in egg
*Batter again*
Fry in 1 inch deep pot of oil (oil should be about 300-350 degrees)
Fry time should be about 10-15 minutes
Place in paper towel for 10 minutes to allow cool
Enjoy (with honey obviously)
