fried chicken and biscuits Don’t you just love fried chicken and biscuits? We do.

And T makes stellar fried chicken. He learned how from his grandmother (or was it one of her daughters: his aunt or his mother?) Whoever this wonderful person was, I am forever grateful. Because I get to eat the best fried chicken in the world.

Here is our facsimile of my grandmother-in-law’s recipe for buttermilk fried chicken. T made a couple of changes the other night though. Instead of adding the spices to the flour, he added them to the yoghurt (we didn’t have any buttermilk) and marinated the chicken in spiced yoghurt.

onions browning for gravy Because T isn’t wild about the gravy he usually makes with this, he switched and made onion gravy using water and chicken stock instead of left over yoghurt sludge.

While T slaved over the hot stove, I made the biscuits.

And then we served everthing with steamed green beans. Our dinner was spectacular! I want fried chicken and biscuits EVERY night!

    I can’t imagine a better meal. Do my eyes deceive me or is that a cast iron skillet you’re using? Apparently they’re best for making fried chicken.

    Thanks for sharing the recipe!

    Your eyes do not deceive you, Ivonne. That is indeed a cast iron skillet for the chicken. I didn’t know for sure that they were best but it’s what we’ve always used.
