Craving Southern Style Chicken?
Make 2017 the year of delicious Southern style chicken meals. From fried to barbecued, Southerners sure know how to handle chicken. Step up your chicken game in 2017 with these three delicious recipes.
1. Buttermilk Chicken Biscuit with Habanero Peach Hot Sauce & Honey Butter
You read all that correctly. We could've stopped at the buttermilk chicken, but crisp fried chicken needs delicious accompaniments. It may seem like a lot of components, but once you gather all your ingredients, it should only take an hour, and trust us, that's an hour well spent. These biscuits have swirls of cream cheese, adding creaminess and that special tang. The habanero peach sauce is perfectly spicy-sweet, and the honey butter is incredible alone with the leftover biscuits. What's more is the cook points out these are great for breakfast, lunch, or dinner. Get the recipe here.
2. Double Crust Chicken Pot Pie
Ask anyone the best part of a chicken pot pie, and the answer is typically the same: the crust. There's nothing quite like a golden, flakey crust, and the makers of this recipe knows that. Using pre-made pie crust cuts down on prep time, and pre-baking the crusts cuts down on sogginess. Lots of herbs and veggies make for hearty pot pies, while the chicken cooks quickly and absorbs all the added spices during baking. It might be better than your mom's pot pie, but don't tell her!
3. Cajun Stuffed Chicken Breast
Get a taste of the Big Easy with this Cajun Stuffed Chicken Breast. A zesty Cajun spice coats the chicken, while inside gooey pepper jack cheese melts together with bell peppers, mushrooms, and onions. This dish is relatively simple and quick to prepare. The cook even has a video showing the stuffing process, so don't think you'll have trouble tackling that step! Serve alongside a green salad or pasta for a heartier dish.
