It's Chicken Day Here At Pure Florida
Another view of chicken. This is a store bought bird....we are such weenies and make pets of everything, so our chickens are safe from the butcher block. I did kill and cook one years ago, but everybody treated me as if I had served up one of our dogs on a plate, so I canned that idea.
This bird is frying in peanut oil. It's a whole chicken split down the middle and rubbed with Tony Cachere's cajun spice. This was an experiment, I had planned to barbeque split birds, but it was a rainy day.
The results were good, skinnier parts came out a little dry as they finished before the meatier portions, but it was still tastey. I did 3 birds that day and it took 15 to 20 minutes each. No breading of course, if you season chicken before you fry, you won't miss the breading...but you will miss the oily calories!
