Smothered chicken – A soul food that looks delicious and has a unique wonderful flavor. In this post, I will teach you how to clean the chicken properly then take you through the steps to making this smothered chicken recipe.
I fell in love with Soul food after coming to the US. Soul food is all about enhancing the taste of the main ingredient which in our case today is the chicken.
There are spices used but the spices are all mild in flavor and do not take over the whole dish and that’s what makes a mouthwatering Southern Smothered Chicken.
The first step in making this dish is to properly clean the chicken, so pay attention to these steps:
Run the sharp side of the knife several times and lightly over the chicken skin.
Wash the chicken in cool water and rub with salt for a minute then rinse again. Pat dry and it is ready. Drying the chicken is an important step, remember that you are going to use oil to fry the chicken and any drop of water will make the hot oil splatter.
Making Smothered Chicken.
Smothered Chicken goes well with rice, mashed potato, and bread. The chicken was juicy and the sauce had the perfect creamy texture. The sauce gets thicker when it cools down.
