Cream of Mushroom Soup (or cream of: celery, onion, 'insert ingredient here' soup): Cream of Mushroom Soup Wanna-Be Chick-fil-A (for girls like me who live 30 minutes or more from this divine gazillion chemicals and ingredients in their food restaurant and want to be a little healthier)
Ingredients (serves 2)
·2 large chicken breasts, cut
into bite-sized pieces and seasoned with salt & pepper
·3/4 cup milk
·1/4 cup pickle juice
·1 1/4 cups flour
·2 Tablespoons powdered sugar
·2 teaspoons salt
·1 teaspoon pepper
·1/2 cup peanut oil, divided (or
canola or vegetable oil)
For the Honey Mustard Dipping
·1/2 cup plain greek yogurt
·1 1/2 Tablespoons yellow mustard
·1 Tablespoon Dijon mustard
·2 Tablespoons honey
·Whisk together egg, milk and
pickle juice, and pour into a large ziplock bag or bowl. Add chicken pieces and
marinate in the refrigerator for 2-4 hours.
·Combine flour, powdered sugar,
salt and pepper in a large ziplock bag. Shake to combine. Remove chicken from
the marinade and add into the bag. Shake to coat the chicken completely.
·Heat half the oil in a large
skillet or dutch oven over medium-high heat (6 or 7 out of 10.) Test the oil by
dropping in a bit of the flour mixture. If it sizzles, the oil is ready, if it
pops, lower the temperature a bit.
·Gently place chicken pieces into
the oil with tongs. Do this in 2 batches, as you don’t want to overcrowd the
pan. Cook the chicken for 3-4 minutes, or until golden brown on one side. Turn
the chicken over and allow to cook for 3-4 more minutes. Remove to a
paper-towel lined plate. Heat the remaining oil and continue with the other
half of the chicken pieces.
