Oven Fried Chicken

oven fried chicken recipeWe recently have started a new little tradition. For the last few months, we have been going out for a late Sunday brunch. Even though I am not a huge breakfast eater, I do like to eat breakfast food later in the day. We try to go someplace different every week, but we keep going back to Gram & Dun, we all love it. It is in Country Club Plaza, and not only is the food amazing, but it is a gorgeous restaurant. I love the look and feel, and the mix of elegant and casual. Another reason why I love this restaurant so much is because I have never been anywhere that does such a good job of mixing sweet and savory. There is nothing that makes my mouth happier than salty and sweet together. Many dishes on their brunch menu achieve this perfect bite. I try not to order the same thing every time, but one of us always gets the chicken and waffles. It is plate of corn flake fried chicken, cheddar and herb waffles, hot sauce, and maple syrup.

One of my favorite things to do is to try and recreate something that I love in a restaurant at home. The chicken at Gram & Dun is far more complicated than I am willing to take on at home. The chicken is brined, sous-vide, and then flash fried. Instead, I made something inspired by the dish that I love. I marinated in buttermilk to tenderize the chicken, and made sure that there was a lot of flavor in the marinade and the coating. I add a few Tablespoons of oil to the corn flakes and it helps the chicken get crispy in the oven. This chicken is so moist and tender on the inside, and crispy on crunchy on the inside. What more could you ask for? I served this with some ranch on the side and a simple salad. But when I am missing our Sunday Gram & Dun brunches after we leave Kansas, you can bet I will be making some waffles to go with this.
