Red Wine Marinated Fried Chicken… that’s a mouthful, literally

I always have chicken and wine in my kitchen, as do most people, I would guess. And after a long trail of boring dinners, I decided to combine the two using a recipe from epicurious.com

The marinade combines red wine, red wine vinegar, dijon mustard and garlic. Let the chicken sit in this overnight, although 5 hours sufficed when I made it this time. Take half the marinade and combine it with 1 egg. Dip the marinated chicken in the egg then into a bowl of flour, salt and pepper. Fry with vegetable oil and done! An absolutely wonderful, flavorful dinner.

Serve with steamed broccoli and carrots. And more wine… although mascato would have probably been a better idea.

Next chicken experiment… beer battered fried chicken!
