Salmon & Asparagus

Fried Chicken!

Who doesn’t like Fried Chicken? It’s a guilty pleasure that when seasoned and made well, is a plate full of joy and happiness. I love fried chicken and while it’s not the best food in terms of health and nutrition, it more than makes up for in taste and flavor. The crispy skin on the…
