I finally got my flank steak thawed and am using it tonight!!!! I know I have said that so many times.

It is marinating in red wine vinegar, soy sauce, onion, garlic, rosemary, olive oil, and s & p. Then I will grill it, slice it thin and serve it over greens with a red onion vineagrette and baked potatoes.

Ahhh!!! So I am not the only one that occasionally starts jonesing for some KFC?? LOL.

Out of curiosity, have any of you ever brought home KFC extra crispy, coated it with your favorite BBQ sauce, then baked for about 10 minutes in the oven at 350F to thicken the sauce and 'bake' it into the crust??
Yum!!

Are you kidding? Fried chicken with mashed potatoes and gravy are major comfort food for me, and I haven't made fried chicken in years because it's so messy.

I like that idea of coating it with BBQ sauce and baking - sounds delish! I'll have to try it.

It was really good....I made a few adjustments in the recipe to suit our tastes but I'd def. make it again and again.
I know what you mean I've been searching for all kinds of various dishes. My tomatoes are about to all ripen and I have basil out of the ying yang so lots of Italian dishes will be being served this summer......love it!

We love it that way! We had a guy just down the road that ran a pizza/sub/chicken restaurant that did it that way and it was the best. Unfortunately he decided to retire and the new owners converted it to a pizza/taqueria and don't do the subs or chicken anymore. The subs were huge and full of fresh veggies very good.
I cheat and use KFC to make it, but I bet it would be real good with homemade fried chicken.
And fried chicken with mashed potatoes and gravy are a huge comfort food for me too. The kids all ways know when I order it, "Oh, Daddy wants his comfort food tonight!" LOL.
