Classic Southern Comfort Meal: Fried Chicken, Grits, and Biscuits
You will need:
- Chicken pieces
- Spices (salt, pepper, paprika, garlic powder)
- Cooking oil
- Stone-ground grits
- Cheddar cheese
- Biscuit mix
- Start by marinating the chicken pieces in a mixture of buttermilk, salt, and pepper. Leave it in the fridge for at least 2 hours.
- In a separate bowl, mix flour, paprika, garlic powder, and a pinch of salt and pepper.
- Dip each chicken piece in the flour mixture, then in beaten eggs, and back in the flour mixture.
- Heat the cooking oil in a deep fryer or large frying pan. Fry the chicken pieces until golden brown and cooked through.
- For the grits, bring 4 cups of water to a boil in a saucepan. Gradually whisk in the grits, reduce the heat to low, and cook, stirring often, until the grits are creamy.
- Add butter and grated cheddar cheese to the cooked grits, stirring until the cheese has melted.
- For the biscuits, follow the instructions on the biscuit mix package, which usually involves combining the mix with milk, kneading the dough, cutting out biscuits, and baking them in the oven.
- Serve the fried chicken with a side of cheesy grits and warm biscuits.
This meal is best enjoyed hot and fresh. You can add a side of coleslaw or green beans for a complete Southern meal.
