All of the Instructions

Fried chicken with 11 herbs and spices

Prep: 30 minutes

Soak: 20-30 minutes

Cook: 15-18 minutes

Makes: 4 servings

2 cups all-purpose flour

2/3 tablespoon salt

½ tablespoon dried thyme leaves

½ tablespoon dried basil leaves

1/3 tablespoon dried oregano leaves

1 tablespoon celery salt

1 tablespoon ground black pepper

1 tablespoon dried mustard

4 tablespoons paprika

2 tablespoons garlic salt

1 tablespoon ground ginger

3 tablespoons ground white pepper

1 cup buttermilk

1 egg, beaten

1 chicken, cut up, the breast pieces cut in half for more even frying

Expeller-pressed canola oil

1 Mix the flour in a bowl with all the herbs and spices; set aside.

2
Mix the buttermilk and egg together in a separate bowl until combined.
Soak the chicken in the buttermilk mixture at room temperature, 20-30
minutes.

3 Remove chicken from the buttermilk, allowing excess to
drip off. Dip the chicken pieces in the herb-spice-flour mixture to coat
all sides, shaking off excess. Allow to sit on a rack over a baking
sheet, 20 minutes.

4 Meanwhile, heat about 3 inches of the oil in a
large Dutch oven (or similar heavy pot with high sides) over
medium-high heat to 350 degrees. (Use a deep-frying thermometer to check
the temperature.) When temperature is reached, lower the heat to medium
to maintain it at 350. Fry 3 or 4 pieces at a time, being careful not
to crowd the pot. Fry until medium golden brown, turning once, 15-18
minutes. Transfer chicken pieces to a baking sheet covered with paper
towels. Allow the oil to return to temperature before adding more
chicken. Repeat with remaining chicken.

A note on MSG:
A number of readers have asked how much MSG to use in the recipe above.
Although KFC has confirmed that its present-day recipe uses MSG, that
ingredient was not part of the list of herbs and spices we received from
the Colonel’s nephew, so we didn’t include MSG in the published recipe.
But we did taste the fried chicken with a sprinkle of MSG. If you want
to try the chicken with MSG, we suggest doing as we did: Sprinkle a
little on the finished chicken pieces right before eating.

Even More movies that Would be improved by the addition of a Giant Telepathic Squid

Let’s get right to it

50 Shades of Gray Grey

BDSM and Sensuality are nowhere to be found in this hollywood bean flicker about Dakota Johnson and some Dude who is #notmychristian. It’s a Hollywood take on a BDSM movie that doesn’t star Rosie O’Donnell and Dan Akroyd.  Without that dynamic duo, who has the time for it?

How would this movie be improved by a sprinkling of Calamari with evil intent?

Two Words.  Slimy Sex. Okay, three.  Slimy Wet Sex? No, moist.  That’s it.  Moist.  Everything would be moist.  I have it on good authority that moist is a wholly despicable word,  So I’ve taken the liberty to moisten this whole paragraph up in anticipation.  I got nothing, I remembered the Dan Akroyd Rosie O’Donnell Sex movie and my mind went to its happy place and didn’t want to come back.
Lemmie take another swing at this.
Christian Grey? Or Gray, what way is it.  Not Still stuck on Rosie in Bondage gear.
It was just startling, she was already middle aged and so was Dan Akroyd.  It’s called Exit to Eden.  THAT Movie could have used some human sized squid, to ink out our memories!  I have exactly three good memories about that movie and they have little to do with the movie itself.

King Kong

King Kong is the story about how a girl can go away on an overseas adventure, come home and her summer romance follows her home in steerage,  Things are all going well for him, he has a show on Broadway, he’s even the star; but when the Girl isn’t on his same wavelength he takes things to extremes and ends up getting hurt,

How could King Kong be improved with a Giant Squid?

For once the Giant Squid is not one of the “bad guys”  Gail finds herself alone in the wilderness; next to a blue pond when a massive, squishy head emerges.  Another Giant Monster.  It looms over her, tentacles caressing and teasing her, a massive beak just feet from her.  Fetid air around it.  It opens it’s mouth and… says “Gurrrrl, you should get away from Kong now, he’s only going to snatch you up and run away with you”
Later, standing over Kong’s body Gail gets a telegram with the words ‘I told you so.  Squid”

Mrs. Doubtfire

How could Mrs. Doubtfire be improved by adding a Giant Squid?
