Sunny days are made for celebrating! If a summer picnic is top of the mind, then these recipes are calling your name! Skip the same old sandwiches or cold salads and whip up a picnic basket worthy of envy with Max’s Wine Dive’s Famous Southern Fried Chicken as your star, alongside several suitable sides…
Marinated in a spicy and delicious jalapeño-buttermilk mixture, then breaded in a special seasoned flour and deep fried “low and slow,” this famous fried chicken is one of the most crave-worthy eats anywhere!
Calories definitely don’t count when indulging in this meal, but you get a pass. 😉
The slow crackle of the fried chicken, fresh off the pan, is plated here with Max’s mashed potatoes and cooked Collard Greens. It’s enough to make our mouths water just thinking about it…
Pair it with a favorite frigid beverage like this signature Windflower Grapefruit Iced Tea or Chef’s Backyard Re-hydrating Lemonade [below] and your picnic basket is all set. The PERFECT portable lunch!
For a little punch, try these spicy Pickled Cherry Tomatoes – delicious hot or cold – with your chicken. This recipe comes from my friends at the Culinary Institute of America. I’ve made it many times, and it’s always a huge hit.
If there’s room for dessert, sneak a couple of these yummy Peanut Butter Sriracha Cookies…sweet, spicy and chewy. Just the way we like’em:
