Had a nice dinner with Grumpys Mom last night... then of course had to come home and work... I am really going to retire one day just not sure when but when I have busy months like I have had this month I think it might be tomorrow...
This  recipe for Kentucky fried chicken is very easy to make, either in a regular skillet or deep fryer.
It is actually perfect for a deep fryer. Either way, just make sure to cook the chicken right through

Kentucky Style
Fried Chicken
1 whole chicken, cut into pieces
2 to 3 eggs, beaten
3 to 4 tablespoons oil for frying

Coating Mixture:
2 cups flour
4 teaspoons paprika
2 1/2 teaspoons salt
1/2 to 1 teaspoon pepper
1 teaspoon poultry seasoning
1 teaspoon thyme
1 teaspoon oregano
1 teaspoon tarragon
1/2 teaspoon garlic salt
1/2 teaspoon onion salt
1/2 teaspoon celery salt

Mix together all the coating ingredients and place in a clean plastic bag. Dip each piece into beaten egg, then into the flour mixture in the bag. Coat the chicken completely with the flour mixture.
Place the oil in a skillet and heat. Brown the chicken in oil slowly (225ºF if you are using an electric skillet), uncovered. Cover the skillet and continue to fry at a very low heat until the chicken is fully cooked, approximately 1 hour.
Drain well on paper towels.


Below are a few Mushroom Tips: I have up posted from a blog that I follow

1. Mushrooms will last longer if you store them in a paper bags in the crisper compartment of the refrigerator.
2.   For the best flavor: Sauté mushrooms on low to medium heat.
3.    For the best texture: Sauté mushrooms on high heat.
4.  Only clean mushrooms when you are ready to us them.  Gently wipe mushrooms with a damp cloth or paper towel or clean them the good old fashioned way, by running them under cold water.
5.     Dried mushrooms: Soak dried mushrooms in hot water for 30 to 60 minutes.  Rinse and chop.  Save the soaking liquid to add to soups and sauces.  I use dried mushrooms more like a seasoning than a vegetable.
6.  You can freeze cooked mushrooms, but not raw ones.  Frozen mushrooms will last several months.
We have a big job tonight when Grumpy gets home we are going to drain our hot tub.. have it serviced and then refill and start to enjoy again...
PS .. was wondering if some followers could please post a comment on my blog , have had a few people say that they are not able to post.. so if you do post please email me at ribbonpalace@shaw.ca and let me know... thanks....
