Binging with Babish: Pollos Hermanos from Breaking Bad

  • Published on: 15 September 2020
  • This week, we're faced with a very particular challenge, the likes of which I never thought I'd have to face: batter-fried chicken. It sounds innocuous enough, but a cursory glimpse at any given recipe eschews batter in favor of a sturdier, more reliable flour-and-egg dredge. Thanks to our new kitchen producer (Kendall Beach), we concocted a formula for batter that wouldn't bulk up, wouldn't brown too quickly, and wouldn't crack in the unforgiving oil. The results are annoyingly difficult but undeniably fantastic fried chicken, made in (what I imagine is) the Pollos Hermanos style!

    Speaking of hot dogs, perhaps it’s been requested elsewhere, I’m not sure, but since I’m here I thought I’d throw my suggestion into the box- can you please teach us how to make Japadogs? Or have you already, and that’s just an episode that I’ve missed? I’ve always wanted to try one but not only is travel up to British Columbia just massively inconvenient right now (hello and thank you for all the hours of absolutely delicious looking recipes and entertainment from MN/the Twin Cities, btw!), I am also not even close to financially stable enough to just jump on a flight every time I want to try a new weird and delicious looking hot dog. I am resourceful in the kitchen however...

    Trying this recipe in the air fryer before work this morning, first time using an air fryer or vodka in my chicken, hope it turns out good!

    The oil level in the pans makes me cringe. I'd use double the oil and triple the size of the pan. Less heat loss when chicken is added and way safer.

    low to mid heat for 5 minutes and grind them. You will get some "Merkén", which is a traditional chilean spice blend!

    Something about that Los Pollos Hermanos commercial from the show is REALLY unsettling to me. Like...the smiles of the employees give me a “Stepford Wives” feeling and I don’t really know why. Someone who’s watched the show: Is that commercial SUPPOSED to come off as unsettling or am I just seeing things? (I’ve never watched the show. I know I probably should.)Also, I would LOVE to see what you could make from those potato mushroom. Or what prank resulted from them.

    I have a recipe for those "potato mushrooms" left behind by the Kitchen Aid apple peeler attachment. I received it as a gift. I left it in the box for four years in a closet. I would never need a machine to peel fruit or vegetables. I never cook for more than 8... But, I did once need to peel about 20 pounds of potatoes, so I pulled out the device last Christmas and went for it. I was surprised to learn it even had a spiralizing feature. Those mushroom potato butter were a cute and funny surprise to find. So, of course, I played with them. In the end, they make a really fine roast potato in the shape of fungi for two servings. Every 20 lbs of potatoes... two slight servings. Cute as a button!

    "Spiralizer" sounds like a horrifying torture tool.

    This is what a Babish episode should be. No faff. No whinging bint. Just good fried chicken. Get on with it. If I could unsubscribe twice, I would.
