Inspired by the Obesity thread, it occurs to me we need some decent and simple comfort food recipes to wean people off of junk food. Maybe we could begin to do it? Here's a starter. Make your own Kentucky Fried Chicken. I do it by whizzing up a couple of slices of bread in the food processor with a bit of chilli, onion whatever herbs I have and frankly whatever else I fancy which is usually only a bit of salt an pepper, maybe a clove of garlic. Coat the chicken portions in flour, dip in the egg and smother them with the breadcrumb mix. And then I bake them instead of frying. You have all the fat you need from the chicken to make it work, and taste even better. You want chips with it? Why not have a baked potato instead? Far tastier and more comforting. Cook it in the oven instead of the microwave. Start them off half an hour before you're ready to cook the chicken, and serve with a **** of butter. A bit of coleslaw maybe? Make your own. It's only grated cabbage, some grated carrot and mayonaise, a bit of grated onion if you like. Fresh beats the packet stuff for enjoyment and comfort anyday. And for desert, an apple crumble. Make half the amount of crumble you might expect to do but add a similar quantity of breadcrumbs to the mix. Fantastically light crumble. For the apple, just peel, quarter and core. Don't cook it beforehand or it will have no texture. Sprinkle with sugar if you're usng Bramleys, cover with the crumble and bake along with the chicken. I can't think of anything simpler to cook that takes less time than popping to the KFC, and I know which I'd prefer, which is why I haven't eaten a KFC in donkeys ages. We need a lot more comfort food recipes besides these few.
