Fiery “Fried”Chicken and Heirloom Tomato Salad with Creamy Italian Herb Dressing

Friday, 02 Jan 2009


Tonight Matt requested the Amazon Fried Chicken I made a couple weeks back, but I was missing a couple of key ingredients.  But I did have Real Simple’s recipe for Fiery “Fried” Chicken.  This is a great oven-fried chicken with plenty of spice to keep things interesting.  However, tonight was a night of improvisation. I did not have the chili-garlic sauce or the pineapple juice called for in the recipe.  My substitutions came out well and the concoction I dipped the chicken in before the breadcrumbs came out was very flavorful.  Here’s what I mixed together for two chicken breasts:

2 tablespoons plain yogurt

2 tablespoons orange juice

2 dashes cayenne pepper

1 dash paprika

1 dash garlic powder

1 clove of garlic, put through a garlic press


I served it with a green salad topped with beautiful yellow heirloom tomatoes and a creamy Italian dressing with fresh dill and chives.  The cool herb dressing made a great foil for the fiery chicken.  However, I managed to botch the first creamy Italian herb salad dressing recipe I tried.  I got the idea from’s Creamy Italian Salad Dressing.  The red wine vinegar curdled the dressing and it couldn’t be salvaged.  [UPDATE:  Well, I have no one to blame but myself for how this dressing turned out.  The directions say to mix it in the blender and I just whisked it, so that’s why the dressing broke/curdled.  Also, it’s flavor improves if it’s left in the refrigerator for the flavors to meld.  Marie, the original poster of the recipe on RecipeZaar was kind enough to give me these much appreciated pointers!]   Anyway, after I destroyed the initial dressing recipe, here’s what I came up with:

2 tablespoons olive oil

2 tablespoons plain yogurt

1 tablespoon sour cream

2 tablespoona fresh lemon juice

1 clove of garlic, minced or put through a press

1 teaspoon honey

2 teaspoons minced fresh dill

2 teaspoons minced fresh chives

2 tablespoons freshly grated Parmigiano Reggiano

1/4 teaspoon salt

freshly ground pepper

1 dash garlic powder

The crucial part for me was keeping this mixture from curdling.  First, I whisked together the olive oil and lemon to blunt the force of the lemon.  Then I gradually added the yogurt, whisking furiously.  At this point, it didn’t curdle.  I added the sour cream, continuing to whisk quickly.  When even that didn’t curdle, I felt that the mixture was stable and I added the rest of the ingredients.  This is one of those recipes where you can add more of whatever you want to be the dominant flavor.  Just be careful if it’s the lemon juice — I think that’s best added at the start with the oil.  This turned out really well and I even put some on top of my chicken as sauce.

  45. DUI arrests require complete total of the special tools used in criminal court rooms. Defending a DWI begins by understanding none of one’s constitutional rights were trespassed. Because a cop is in direct contact with you, while they are basically the only witness all of the time, their training and MO is of the formula. We all make mistakes, and police are no exception. The Occasion begins with common suspicion that will lead to probable cause. For example, someone gets flashed over for speeding at 3 AM. A officer takes the usual suspicion that the driver has created a traffic offense, passingon a double yellow. Now, as the cop begins to start eye contact or steps in towards the automobile, the cop will point to the fact you are showing watery eyes, or there is an smell of liquor. This elevates the acceptabel intuition of speeding to providing the police a good chance that a person may be crusing around while intoxicated. 80% of cops will say odor of alcohol, watery eye balls, or slurred speech. The cop may usually say you were fumbling around getting your license and proof of insurance handy. At this point the driver will be likely informed to step out of a car and start universal field sobriety tests. These are SFST’s are learned under NHTSA (National road Traffic precautionary Administration) standardizations and need to be assumed per situation. when you do perform the tests, the officer will make mistakes that can have the check, or tests thrown out of from evidence. Things such as physical impairments and optimal street conditions should be integrated amoung the results of your check. (example: someone can not do a hop on one leg and pivot test on uneven pavement). Someone will also take a analkyzation of the breath tests. There are mistakes in these gadgets as well, after all they are devices that need to be maintained and specialized training on hours a week. The arrest is taped at the instance the law enforcement turns on their red and blues. It is through this taped evidence we are able to base an learned choice if the officer giving of the tests, to the clients ability taking the checks. If you consent to the manipukations or not, someone will go to lock up.
