Replied to Fried Chicken Recipe : Ree Drummond : Food Network

Sunday 6 days ago on FoodNetwork.com

When even I do fried chicken I use my electric skillet. It keeps the oil temp consistent without me having to use a thermometer.

You could try ricotta cheese, I did a search for substitute for goat cheese and that was what was suggested.

I made this for my husband and I for dinner tonight. It was quick and easy to prepare. I do suggest you use a good quality beef broth, I used a store brand and it had a week beef flavor I added about a tsp of beef bouillon granules to help bump up the flavor. The sauce was a bit runny so I ended up making a flour slurry to help thicken the sauce....

I have seen other recipes that call for a banana. May add that next time. It tastes similar to a pina colada mixed with strawberries. So basically a strawberry...

I used a name brand white chocolate chips and it was fine. Whenever I am going to do something like this, I don't use a store brand or genetic brands. I made this today for a gift basket and it looks amazing. I used pistachios instead of the walnuts.

I am offended by your first sentence. I know Mexicans that can't make menudo. It would be nice if you would have said my fellow cooks. I found what you posted on how to make menudo as their are no amounts or clean instructions. Guess you don't know how to cook either.
