How to Make a Homemade BBQ Fries
The following recipe is from the cookbook Cooking for a Happy Family: How to make homemade BBQ Fritters for a Healthy Family.
The recipe calls for the following ingredients: 2 large chicken breasts, diced 1 onion, diced 2 cloves garlic, minced 1 tablespoon olive oil 2 tablespoons minced ginger 1 tablespoon red chili flakes 1 tablespoon ground cumin 1 tablespoon cayenne pepper 1 tablespoon dried oregano 1 teaspoon kosher salt (optional) 2 tablespoons butter, melted 1 tablespoon cornstarch 2 cups (8 ounces each) all-purpose flour 2 teaspoons baking powder 1/4 teaspoon baking soda 1/2 teaspoon salt 1/8 teaspoon cinnamon 1/16 teaspoon pepper 1/32 teaspoon nutmeg 1/12 teaspoon cayman powder (optional, but good) Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Spray a baking sheet with nonstick spray.
Place chicken breasts in a large nonstick skillet and season with salt and pepper.
Cook, flipping halfway through, until golden brown, about 5 minutes per side.
Remove chicken from the skillet and set aside.
Heat the oil in a small saute pan over medium-high heat.
Add onion and cook until translucent, about 4 minutes.
Add garlic and ginger and cook for another minute or so.
Add olive oil, cook for about 3 minutes.
Stir in the cumin, cayanne pepper, cumin powder, cinammon, salt, pepper, and oreganos.
Cook until fragrant, about 1 minute.
Add the chicken, ginger, olive oil mixture, and flour mixture, stirring to combine.
Add baking powder, baking soda, salt and cinnamon, and stir well.
Using a rubber spatula, stir in the butter.
Cook for 2 minutes.
Turn the heat to medium-low and add the cornstech mixture.
Stir for about 2 minutes, until it’s a soft, but not wet, mixture.
Add cornsteches to the pan, and cook, stirring, for about 1 additional minute.
Remove from heat.
Place the chicken back in the skillet, and pour the remaining 1/3 cup cornstec mixture on top of the chicken.
Sprinkle the corn starch mixture over the chicken and cook over medium heat, stirring frequently, until the corn stech mixture has melted and browned, about 30 seconds.
Transfer the chicken to a plate and return to the oven for a further 2 minutes or so, until browned and crispy.
Serve hot with homemade BBQ sauce.
Notes This recipe uses homemade barbecue sauce that I found at Whole Foods Market.
I also use a can of white wine and a small can of diced tomatoes.
The wine can also be substituted for homemade barbecue sauces if you prefer.
If you don’t have any barbecue sauce on hand, this is a great way to use up leftover sauce from chicken or pasta dishes.
You can also make this recipe in advance, and reheat in the oven if you like. 3.5.3208
