I have always said that I have the heart of a country girl, but I belong in the city. I love southern comfort food. It gives my mouth and belly such satisfaction. Oh how I often wish I could live off of it . But unless I want to look like “Big Bertha” I better keep up a well-balanced diet while eating southern comfort foods in moderation.
I don’t know what would be my favorite southern comfort food. Hmmmm, let me think about that for a second (and the Jeopardy song plays).
Ok! I got it. buttermilk biscuits, baked macaroni and cheese, and collard greens cook in pork fat. That is my idea of a good time. All of those side dishes gives my mouth such pleasure. Now I know what you are thinking, “Nicole, where is the meat?” Well that is where this Smothered Fried Chicken comes in. There is no way in good consciousness I can eat smothered chicken, baked macaroni and cheese, collard greens, and biscuits at the same time. I would be as big as a house. However that does sound like a wonderful idea. Nevertheless, I can eat the smothered fried chicken over brown rice? Yes?…… Okay I messed up a good thing. I get it! But this dish is absolutely wonderful guys. The gravy came out gorgeously delicious and creamy and the chicken has the perfect amount of crunch that it wont matter what it’s served with. Its good enough to eat alone.Print
