Foodies…Fried Chicken & Biscuits

I have a couple resolutions to maintain but wanted to start the New Year off right.  So I made The Boyfriend fried chicken and biscuits from scratch.

I at least tried a slightly healthier version.  I have an old school recipe for fried chicken, in which coat the chicken in seasoned mayonnaise, bread it then fry it in Crisco.

It’s hard to make something that sounds like it’s going to kill you healthier but I used skinless tenders, replaced mayo with a mustard/chili mix and fried in olive oil.

To accompany my healthy fried chicken, I made free formed cheddar and dill biscuits.  I met a super talented personal chef/caterer, Callie Salls of Linguine & Dirty Martinis, at a party recently and bought some of this Strawberry & Black Pepper jam which was perfect to top the savory biscuits.

But we are back on track for a healthy New Years so it was a rude awakening this morning when The Boyfriend was given Special K and Light Silk.

Unhappy camper…
