World Famous Chicken Lips





Prepare the chicken:

I use large voluptuous chicken breasts! Wash chicken thoroughly, place on a cutting board and remove any fat or skin. Cut the chicken into long strips about as thick as your thumb.


Breading the chicken:

Place three medium-sized bowls on the counter. Fill the first with flour, the second with buttermilk and the third with flour again. Season all three bowls with salt and pepper. Dip the chicken a few strips at a time into the flour, then the buttermilk, then the second bowl of flour. Coat the chicken well in each stage. Place the coated chicken on a cookie sheet as they are breaded and reserve until ready to cook. Place breaded chicken in the fridge for an hour before frying.



Heat fryer oil in a large skillet, pot, Fry Daddy or outdoor cooker to 350 degrees. Re-Roll the lips in flour again just before frying

Fry the Lips in batches until they reach an internal temperature of 165 degrees. Place them on a platter lined with paper towels and keep warm until ready to serve.


To Serve:

Dip the Lips into Hot Lip Sauce and place on a serving platter.

Serve immediately with Budweiser Blue Cheese Dressing on the side.


Hot Lip Sauce:

Melt the butter in a saucepan; do not allow it to boil. Pour the melted butter directly into a blender. Turn the blender on high, remembering to put the lid on first. Remove the stopper from the lid of the blender. Slowly pour the hot sauce through the hole until incorporated. The sauce should be bright orange and become emulsified or slightly thick. Season with garlic powder and blend again for about 30 seconds.


If you have any left over sauce, pour it into a jug and keep it at room temperature. Do not refrigerate. Hot Lip Sauce will keep in an airtight container for up to three days.

  • PROCESS: Roast Tomatoes: Wash the tomatoes and remove the cores. Cut in half along the equator and squeeze out the seeds and juice. Lay the tomato halves on a baking sheet with the inside facing up. Drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle with salt, pepper and garlic. Pre-heat the oven to 325-degrees and roast the tomatoes for 20-30 minutes depending on the size of the tomatoes. When the tomatoes are done, allow them to cool to room temperature. After the tomatoes have cooled, pull the loose skin off and cut each half into six pieces. Roast Tomato Bruschetta: While the tomatoes are roasting, cut the loaf of bread into 1/2 inch slices and arrange on another baking pan. Brush the bread liberally with olive oil. Season the bread with salt and pepper. Sprinkle with grated parmesan cheese. Place the bread in the oven with the tomatoes and cook for about 10-minutes. To Eat: Place one fresh basil leaf on each bread slice, Top with a piece of roasted tomato and sprinkle with more fresh grated parmesan cheese. WOOF!

  • PROCESS: The Dip: In a large saucepan at medium heat, melt the butter until the foam subsides, add the flour and cook to make roux. Cook the roux at low heat for about two minutes until it is tight and smooth with no butter weeping out of it. If you burn the roux, start over. Slowly add half and half, about a cup at a time, stirring constantly to incorporate and avoid roux lumps. Allow the sauce to simmer, stirring frequently with a whisk, rubber spatula or wooden spoon until the sauce becomes very thick like mayonnaise. Remove from the stove, and allow it to cool down to room temperature. Thaw and Squeeze ALL the liquid/juice from the Spinach. Stir spinach into sauce, add the remaining ingredients, stir. To Serve: Place the Spinach Dip into a microwave safe bowl, top it with cheddar cheese and wrap it with plastic wrap. Microwave it until the cheese melts and the dip is hot in the center. Unwrap and place on a serving platter. Top with chopped bacon bits, sour cream and diced red onions. Serve with assorted tortilla chips. INGREDIENTS: Spinach Dip: 1 stick of butter 3/4 cup flour 6 cups half and half 3 pounds frozen spinach 2 cups parmesan cheese 1/2 cup Franks Hot Sauce 1 tablespoon salt 1 tablespoon black pepper Toppings: 1 cup shredded cheddar 2 tablespoons chopped bacon 2 tablespoons diced red onion 2 tablespoons sour cream Your favorite tortilla chips
  • When it comes to chicken wings, there are many different ways to make them. The first question is breaded or not. Un-Breaded Wings: The original buffalo style wings were cooked and served whole, not breaded. Wings are deep fried naked until done and then some. They’re overcooked on purpose, so the meat becomes dried out, which makes it easier for the wings to absorb the sauce. Buffalo sauce is made by melting butter in a skillet and adding hot sauce and stirring with a whisk. Seasoning hot sauce with celery salt is optional. Mild Wing Sauce is equal parts of hot sauce and butter Medium Wing Sauce is 2 parts hot sauce 1 part butter Hot Wing Sauce is Straight Hot Sauce . If you want the sauce hotter, add minced jalapeno peppers or habaneros if you dare! I use Frank's Red Hot Sauce. Place the wings in a large tub with a TIGHT fitting lid, add the sauce, and cover with the lid and shake vigorously to absorb the sauce. Be careful not to get sauce all over yourself. Serve with extra sauce, so they can continue to absorb. Breaded Wings: The second technique is to bread the wings. Place flour in a large bowl, season with salt & pepper. Cut the wings into 3 pieces, discard the wing tips. Roll the wings in flour and fry in hot oil until they look like fried chicken. Here's another hot sauce technique: Melt the butter, don’t allow it to boil. Add the hot sauce in a slow stream while blending with an emulsion blender. This technique helps the sauce stay emulsified. Breaded wings should be dunked in the hot sauce carefully to avoid tearing off the breading. The breading should absorb the sauce. These are two great ways to fix wings. When you’re ready for the real deal, check out the recipe for Chicken Lips!
