Moreover, it is important that you always read the labels on every product you buy to see if the product could cause an allergic reaction or if it conflicts with your personal or religious beliefs. If you are still not sure after reading the label, contact the manufacturer.

Try Sweet and Spicy Chili Sauce For Korean Fried Chicken, Pan-Fried Chicken Dumplings with Sweet and Spicy Dipping Sauce, and Thai Chicken Skewer Appetizers with Sweet and Spicy Chili Sauce for similar recipes.

Riesling, Sparkling Wine, and Zinfandel are my top picks for Southern. In general, there are a few rules that will help you pair wine with southern food. Food-friendly riesling or sparkling white wine will work with many fried foods, while zinfandel is great with barbecued fare. You could try RELAX Riesling. Reviewers quite like it with a 4.1 out of 5 star rating and a price of about 10 dollars per bottle.

RELAX Riesling

Imported by Schmitt Sohne, "Relax Riesling," was designed to be simple, uncomplicated, yet sleek and alluring. The tagline, "Chill and Unwind," convey what this wine is all about. It's a wine that goes well with anything, anytime with anybody. Relax has a wonderful fruity bouquet, with the flavors of apples, peaches and a hint of citrus. It is a touch sweet and will compliment any meal.Serve chilled and enjoy.

  1. 1.For the short marinade/pre-rub: In a large bowl, mix the first 3 ingredients (salt, pepper, and hot sauce) with the chicken pieces until thoroughly coated. Let sit for at least 15 minutes.
  2. 2.For the batter: In a large bowl, whisk together all dry ingredients. Slowly whisk in the water and whisk until smooth. Add more cornstarch or flour to get a thick, pancake-like consistency. Let the batter sit at room temperature for 15 minutes.

Fry the chicken until deep golden brown and just cooked through, about 12 minutes.
  4. 4.Transfer to paper towels to remove excess oil and cool. Serve with sweet chili sauce or sauce of preference. Enjoy.

Tips

Health Tips

  • You can easily swap half of the white flour in most recipes for whole wheat flour to add some fiber and protein. It does result in a heavier dough, so for cookies, cakes, etc., you might try swapping in whole wheat pastry flour.

  • Although the body needs salt to survive, most of us get too much. The problem with consuming too much salt (what chemists call "sodium chloride") is actually the sodium part, which is why people concerned about high blood pressure go on low-sodium diets. If you are trying to reduce salt in your diet, you can try salt substitutes like potassium chloride or try to make do with less salt by using more black pepper, herbs, and spices.

  • Many people will tell you to remove the skin on your chicken to cut down on fat. This is true, but if you like the taste, leave it on! You're only gaining a little fat for a lot of flavor. Plus, a little over half of the fat in chicken skin is monounsatured fat (that's a heart-healthy kind) and the notion that saturated fat is unhealthy is being questioned too. So in our opinion: dig in, skin and all!

  • Sea salt is not healthier than table salt, contrary to what you may have heard. Sea salt is usually 97.5% sodium chloride (same as regular old table salt) and the minerals accounting for the rest are too insignificant to make a difference?unless you plan on consuming sea salt by the pound, in which case the health benefits from the minerals will definitely be outweighed by the negative effects of all the sodium you are consuming!

Price Tips

  • Sea salt can add a unique texture or provide bursts of salty goodness, but ONLY when it isn't being dissolved. So if you have expensive sea salt, save it for sprinkling on salads or dark chocolate cookies, don't try to use it in your pasta sauce or soup. Once sea salt dissolves, the flavor is indistinguishable from table salt from the shaker (after all, they are chemically the same thing, sodium chloride).

  • If you find meat (especially grassfed and/or organic meat!) on sale, stock up and freeze it. Ground meat will stay good 3-4 months, while steaks, chops, etc., will be fine for at least 4 months.

Cooking Tips

  • Corn starch, potato starch, arrowroot powder, and tapioca powder are all comparable in terms of thickening ability, so you can usually substitute them 1:1. Flour, on the other hand, is only half as effective, so if you are using flour instead of corn starch or one of the others named, you'll need to use twice as much.

  • Corn starch can be added directly to cold liquids, but to avoid lumps corn starch must be mixed with a cold liquid (usually water or stock) before it can be added to hot liquids like soup or gravy. This mixture of corn starch in a cold liquid is called a "slurry."

  • If you normally rinse your chicken?stop! You could be spreading bacteria around your kitchen and it isn't really necessary.

Green Tips

  • Choose pasture-raised chicken if it is available. If it is not at your supermarket, visit a farmers' market and ask around.
