I do make a lot of chicken dishes, and I am always trying to re-invent the bird.

This is just another one of those dishes!

I would have had more pictures but my batteries died.

Method:

Deep Fry

Ingredients

4 chicken thighs { skin on bone in }
2 cans vernors ginger ale
1 orange { cut in ½ and juice squeezed into the pot and add the 1/2s }
3 green onions { sliced }
1 teaspoon fine sea salt
1 to 1 & ½ tablespoons flour
1 to 1 & ½ tablespoon unsalted butter

BREADING FOR THE CHICKEN:

1 cup all purpose flour
1 teaspoon chipotle seasonings
1 teaspoon fine sea salt
1 teaspoon fresh ground pepper

Directions Step-By-Step

1
In a sauce pot put the ginger ale, orange, salt and green onions, and bring it to a boil, then add the chicken, cover and turn it down to a simmer. Simmer for 30 minutes. Turn the chicken off, remove the cover and let it cool in the broth.
2
When it is cool put the chicken in a container, broth and orange too! Put it in the refrigerator overnight.
3
Then the next day { when you are ready to cook it } skim any fat that has collected on the top of the liquid and then discard the oranges.
4
Remove the chicken and wrap it in several layers of paper towels to absorb the wetness on the chicken.
5
TO COOK THE CHICKEN:
6
Mix the flour with the chipotle seasoning, salt and pepper. Dredge the chicken in the flour and shake off any excess.
7
Once you bread the chicken, let it sit out on a cooling rack for 30 minutes to set the flour. Then shake it in the flour again!
8
Fry in oil till the chicken is completely cooked { this will depend on how big your chicken pieces are }.
9
TO MAKE THE GRAVY:
10
Put the butter and flour in a sauce pan and cook it on low { you’re making a roux } whisking it till it gets to the medium dark brown stage and then add the jelled broth to it and bring it up to a boil. Keep whisking it and as soon as it starts to thicken, turn it down and continue to cook it for about 10 minutes on low. Check the gravy for seasonings {salt and pepper}.
