Julia Turshen's No-Freakout Fried Chicken

July 26, 2016

One of the best parts of Julia Turshen is that she finds the good in everything.

Her new book, Small Victories, is all about the little milestones you pass as you go through a recipe. With her Buttermilk & Pimentón Fried Chicken, there's more than one opportunity to pat your back—starting with the fact that you can fry chicken without greasing your whole kitchen. Watch to see the small victories in Julia's fried chicken—and you'll find recipe right after!

For more small victories, Julia's book, out in September, is full of 'em!

I've been brining chicken to oven-fry today, but am now encouraged to give Julia's stovetop method a go! I'm coveting your book, Julia - it's next in line for my cookbook stash. :-)

So excited for Julia's book! Loved the video. So nice to know you don't need a vat of oil to fry chicken. Looks delish.
