I love chocolate muffins and I love coffee. So I thought it only made sense to combine both into one muffin, perfect for a indulgent breakfast treat.
I used my absolute favorite chocolate breakfast muffin by King Arthur Flour. It’s moist and very chocolatey without crossing into dessert territory. They’ve actually tweaked their original recipe. I haven’t tried the tweaked version, maybe next time.
Following up on my baked bacon wrapped eggs, I tried making a fried version.
The nice thing about the fried version is that it’s quicker to cook than baking. These babies are ready in minutes though they don’t look nearly as pretty as the baked version.
KFC released their new boneless chicken last week and we immediately went to get some this weekend.
Our fast food ingestion has significantly increased these last few months. I’m not sure what it is. I think it’s a little of a mid-life crisis since we both just have birthdays and have the sudden urge to eat like we did back in our college days.
The new boneless chicken is fried in KFC’s original recipe batter. They offer both white and dark meat. We got a 4 piece meal that comes with two pieces of each, biscuit, drink and two sides ($4.99).
From the outside appearance, it’s a little hard to tell which one is white meat and which one is dark. The boneless pieces resemble chicken wings in shape. Once you break them open, it’s pretty clear which one is white and which one is dark meat.
The white meat reminded me of KFC’s chicken tenders, except more dry. It appears to be chicken breast meat which tends to get dry when it’s fried, but this was even more dry than usual. The batter was very crunchy, though quite salty. I don’t remember the original KFC recipe being quite so salty, but it’s been a little while since I’ve had it. Normally we opt for the spicy wings when we visit.
