Happy first Friday of 2023!
I packed up Christmas. Had a little helper – not so much help – but definitely on guard until I loaded stuff up to take to the storage unit. ha! Meet Kidd.
Beautiful moss growing outta the bricks in my driveway. Look at the brilliant green!
My Finders-Keepers wreath I have been building for several years. I find random toss aways in parking lots or on paths I walk and add to the one-of-a-kind piece of art in progress. Finders-Keepers!
Found yesterday! A cool find in the road where I walk. A discarded or lost fishing lure. Gonna add this treasure to the Finders-Keepers wreath!
There’s fried chicken and then there’s this fried chicken recipe. Outstanding!!

HIPPIE COWBOY FRIED CHICKEN
This knock-your-socks-off fried chicken recipe is the BEST. The addition of toasted sesame seeds + the spices is what sets it apart from other recipes, or your tried and true. Faithful customers at the Hippie Cowboy were devoted to this chicken. As an entree or star in a wonderful green salad.
- Canola oil or Crisco, for frying, in a skillet of choice
- 2 cups buttermilk
- 4 cups flour
- 1 TBSP pepper
- 2 tsp ground cayenne pepper
- 2 tsp onion powder
- 2 tsp garlic powder
- 4 TBSP toasted sesame seeds
- 3 pounds boneless, skinless chicken breasts – sliced to preference
Pour buttermilk in a small, non-metallic bowl.
Combine dry ingredients and pour into a deep dish pie plate or flat baking pan.
Place chicken in buttermilk and let it hang out for about 15 minutes in the liquid.
Next, dredge chicken in seasoned dry mixture. (Help the coating stick by patting the flour mixture onto the chicken pieces with your hand.)
Carefully place the chicken in skillet of hot oil. Watch and turn the chicken once (maybe twice) until chicken is cooked through. Transfer to paper towels to drain.
** You can either toast sesame seeds in skillet on medium on top of the stove or in oven about 350*.
Careful! Seeds brown quickly – so watch them like a hawk or they will burn and become inedible. Don’t worry – it’s an easy task. Just have to pay attention.
