Cooking with Kids - Fried Chicken

The next generation foodies are starting to cook at an early age. My grandson Josh is one of them. He loves to cook because he says “it allows me to use my creativity and make people happy too.“ This dinner was his gift to his sister Anna for her birthday. He chose the menu based on her likes and he cooked at my house in case he needed help. My job was to show him techniques for the best results and he produced a fabulous feast on his own. 

A favorite in many households, this chicken is fried only for a few minutes then baked when needed. It is superb and the technique of brining with buttermilk opened Josh’s eyes to the science of cooking.
