Good Eats, WIXYgrad Style

For all those who are curious about what the rage is about Barberton chicken, as a public service, I will provide you with a link to the Barberton Magics website. Here you will find the recipes for the chicken, hot sauce and cole slaw pictured in the post about our gathering last night.

There is even a recipe for a healthy alternative to the traditional recipe for the chicken, for those not willing to throw caution to the wind.

bon appetit

I stopped by the site and marked it on my faves so i can go back later and check it out.

The chicken does call for a lot of lard. Well, if I am going to leave this world some day then I might as well leave it fat and happy. HE HE HE HE HE HE :-)

No offense, but I was born and raised in the south where they know how to make REAL fried chicken. The stuff Barberton calls chicken must be filled with hallucinogenic drugs for people to rave about it. I think it is the greasiest, most disgusting tasting chicken around. When my parents and all the kids moved up here we went out to one of the chicken houses that were recommended and ordered up. Food came out, we all took a couple of bites and then spit it out. He asked for the check, paid it, and told the manager that if they were in the south and tried to pass that swill off as fried chicken they would be out of business in two months. Figuring maybe it was just that place, we went to a couple of other Barberton chicken houses and, not wanting to take a chance on getting stuck with a huge bill, he ordered only one dinner, tasted it and tossed it. We have never been back to any of them and it just amazes us that people actually think that stuff is good fried chicken.
