Fried chicken and mac 'n' cheese are clearly meant to be together. But anyone can eat mac 'n' cheese as a side dish. You, however, are an individual who doesn't follow traditional rules. So your ideal solution is to obviously combine the two somehow into one glorious foodgasm.
You can take the easy option and just sandwich some mac 'n' cheese between to pieces of fried chicken or you can play the food game in expert mode and stuff that macaroni right into those strips. That's exactly what the wonderful minds at Oh Bite It did, and they were kind enough to include the recipe and instructions.
- 6 cooked fried chicken strips
- 3 cups of prepared mac 'n' cheese
- 1 cup of bread crumbs
- 1 cup of parmesan
- 2 eggs
In a large bowl, mix the macaroni with the flour and the eggs. In a separate bowl, mix the bread crumbs and parmesan. Grab a chicken strip and coat it entirely in mac 'n' cheese, then quickly drop it in the bread crumbs. Heat your oil to 350 degrees and fry them until they are perfectly golden.
