Southern Cookin' Sundays #3

Day 80!

Today, I made another Southern Cookin' Menu. On today's plate: Chicken Fried Chicken (LoL), Lima Beans & Corn, Southern Style Biscuits, and Sweet Potato Pie for dessert!

Here are some recipes...

Chicken Fried Chicken (Why do they call it that? Wouldn't Fried Chicken do it?)

  • 2 1/5 lb chicken (I used boneless, skinless breasts)
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 tsp sea salt
  • 2 tsp black pepper
  • 3 large eggs
  • 3/4 cup milk
  • peanut oil for deep frying
How it's Done:
  1. Heat oil in a large skillet with high sides over medium heat.
  2. Meanwhile, combine flour, salt, and pepper in a pie plate. In another pie plate, combine beaten eggs and milk.
  3. Dip chicken in flour, then egg, then flour, then egg, then flour and egg again. THREE dips each dish.
  4. Fry 8 to 10 minutes, then flip chicken and fry another 8 to 10 minutes.
  5. Serve with gravy if desired.

Sweet Potato Pie

  • 2 large eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1/4 cup melted butter
  • 2 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp ground ginger
  • 2 cups cooked, mashed sweet potato
  • 1 can evaporated (PET) milk
  • pie crust for a single crust pie
How it's Done:
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a deep dish pie plate with your crust. Set aside.
  2. In your food processor, combine eggs, butter, vanilla, sugar, cinnamon, and ginger. Add sweet ptoatoes. Process until smooth.
  3. With food processor running, slowly add milk.
  4. Pour into pie crust.
  5. Bake for 45 to 60 minutes, until almost set. Let pie cool completely before serving.

I believe a key ingredient has been left out of the sweet potato pie recipe....

LOL Maybe I should have called it Sweet Surprise Pie? Thanks for pointing that major error out. I fixed it! ;)

I love your Southern Sunday menus. I, however, gain 10 lbs just by looking at the wonderful photos of your delicious treats :)

I think in the south Chicken Fried Chicken has the double chicken in the title because they (meaning the South) tends to fry everything in that method, like steak :) Consequently, its all delicious too LOL
