The Spicy Olive’s Spicy Fried Chicken

SPICY FRIED CHICKEN
6 chicken thighs
6 chicken drumsticks
3 cups buttermilk
2 teaspoons salt
1 teaspoon pepper
3 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 cup cornstarch
1 tablespoon salt
1 tablespoon paprika
2 teaspoons onion powder
2 teaspoons garlic powder
1 teaspoon dried basil
1 teaspoon white pepper
1 cup of The Spicy Olive’s Baklouti Green Chile Fused Olive Oil
1/2 cup The Spicy Olive’s Herbs de Provence Olive Oil
1 cup of The Spicy Olive’s Lemon Fused Olive Oil
2 cup of The Spicy Olive’s Butter Infused Olive Oil
In a large mixing bowl, whisk together buttermilk, salt, and pepper in a mixing bowl. Add in chicken pieces. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and refrigerate 4 hours.
When ready to cook, pour all your oils into a medium size skillet, fill until it is about 3/4 inch deep. Heat to 350 degrees.
Prepare the breading by combining the flour, cornstarch, onion powder, garlic powder, basil, white pepper, paprika, and salt in a gallon sized resealable plastic bag or shallow dish. Mix it thoroughly.
Working one at a time, remove chicken pieces from buttermilk mixture. Shake each piece gently to remove the excess. Place it in the breading mix gallon bag and shake each piece inside until coat thoroughly. Tap off the excess.
Place the breaded chicken into the 350 degree oil. Fry 3 or 4 pieces at a time. The chicken will drop the temperature of the oil so keep it as close to 350 degrees as possible. Fry each piece for 14 minutes, turning each piece over about every 2 minutes, until the chicken reaches an internal temperature of 165 degrees F.
Remove from the oil and place on paper towels. Let them rest for at least 10 minutes before serving.

The Spicy Olive’s Mushroom Flatbread Pizza

MUSHROOM FLAT BREAD PIZZA
Flat Bread Dough:
2 1/2 cups of AP unbleached flour
1 cup warm water
2 tablespoons The Spicy Olive’s Wild Mushroom & Sage Olive Oil
2 teaspoons active dry yeast
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon granulated sugar
Mushroom Topping:
1 large shallot, thinly sliced
2 tablespoons The Spicy Olive’s Wild Mushroom & Sage Olive Oil
2 cups fresh sliced mushrooms such as Cremini, Shitake, Oyster, Porcnini, Chanterelle, etc.
sea salt & fresh ground black pepper to taste
To make the flat bread dough, mix together the olive oil, warm water, yeast, and sugar. Allow to sit for five minutes to bloom. Blend the salt with the flour and mix with the wet ingredients to form a somewhat moist dough.
Knead the dough for about five minutes adding just a bit of flour if it becomes too sticky, until a smooth dough forms. Divide in to two balls and set aside covered in a warm place to rise until doubled, for about 1 hour.
Meanwhile make the mushroom topping. In a large saute pan heat the olive oil over medium heat. Add the mushrooms and sprinkle with a bit of sea salt to taste. Saute until they just begin to turn a light golden-brown color. Add the sliced shallot and cook for an additional 2-3 minutes until the shallot is sweet, soft, and also gently caramelized. Adjust seasoning as desired with salt and pepper, and set aside to cool while the dough rises. Alternatively, you can use your bread machine or stand mixer to mix and knead the dough.
Preheat the oven to 450 F.
To assemble, roll each flat dough ball in to a very thin circle, approximately 8″ in diameter. Place the rolled dough on to a sheet pan or pizza pan either greased with olive oil, lined with parchment, or dusted with cornmeal.
Arrange the caramelized mushroom-shallot mixture evenly over both pieces of dough. Sprinkle each with equal portions of crumbled blue cheese, and another drizzle of Mushroom-Sage Olive Oil, and additional fresh ground pepper (if desired). Slide the flat bread in to the preheated oven and bake for approximately 15 minutes until the cheese is melted and beginning to caramelize and the crust is golden brown and slightly puffed. Rotate the flat bread half way through the cooking process to ensure that each cooks evenly.
