Hi, I’m a picky eater and I’m not ashamed to be – I felt a great urge to just put it out there. If I were to describe my case , I will say I have an advance case of picky eating issues, because I hate to see onions in my food. Just before you list all the benefits of eating onions, let me  just stop you by saying I’m aware of them. All thanks to my very African mother – God bless her.

Growing up, I have been told that a woman cannot cook a delicious meal without adding onions, I didn’t think much of it until now. Partly because marriage and wedding bells will be ringing few years from now, and I will like to capture not only honey boo’s heart but his stomach through my food. This made me begin a research on all the delicious meal you can prepare without onions – hallelujah! and I will be sharing one of them with you. I hope you try it and comeback to thank me.

Fried chicken, spicy sweet potatoes Southern-style

The ingredients required are:

1 whole chicken

5 large eggs

2 teaspoons of salts

2 teaspoons of black pepper

4 cups of all-purpose flour

Buttered milk

Vegetable shortening

Step by step guide to prepare the meal

1. In a large baking dish, soak the chicken in the buttermilk overnight.

2. In a shallow dish, whisk together the eggs, 1 teaspoon of the salt, and 1/2 teaspoon of the pepper. In a second shallow dish, whisk together the flour and remaining 1 teaspoon salt and 1/2 teaspoon pepper.

3. Melt enough vegetable shortening in a cast-iron skillet over medium-high until the melted shortening is about 1 inch deep in the skillet. Heat to 325°F.

4. Remove the chicken from the buttermilk, allowing most of the buttermilk to drip back into the bowl. Dredge in the flour mixture; dip in the egg mixture, and dredge again in the flour mixture.

5. Carefully place the chicken in the hot skillet, and fry until golden and cooked through with an internal temperature of about 170°F, about 15 minutes, turning halfway through. Remove the chicken, and place on a baking sheet lined with paper towels to drain.
