What is weed fried chicken?
Weed fried chicken is a dish made by frying weed with butter and spices, such as salt or pepper. It’s usually served on top of mashed potatoes, rice.
- The only thing you need to make weed fried chicken is a pound of ground beef, some flour, and your favorite seasonings.
- Preheat the oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit.
- Combine the ground beef with seasonings. It’s best to start off by adding salt and pepper, but you can also add some garlic powder or basil.
- Add a little bit of flour at a time until it starts getting difficult to mix together and form into balls because there is too much flour mixture. The perfect ratio will vary depending on how moist your meat was when mixed in earlier; if it was dry, more flour may be necessary than if it were wetter (i.e., adding less).
- Form the meatballs into bite sized pieces – about two inches across for an average size person who likes their fried chicken as I do! Promise me this: always have dental floss around when eating weed fried chicken because of the flour that’s used.
- Put them on a tray and place them in the freezer for at least one hour, but overnight is best – this allows the meat to harden a little more so it holds up better when frying!
- Use an oil with higher smoke points (i.e., can tolerate cooking temperatures without burning) such as soybean, grapeseed, or vegetable oils; don’t use olive oil unless you have high quality extra virgin cold processed variety that has low levels of polyunsaturated fats). Fry your frozen weed fried chicken pieces until they are about five minutes from being done based on how large each piece is – if they’re very small, cook only two minutes per side just to get them crispy. Making weed fried chicken involves frying up some buttermilk breaded cutlets before adding them to a hot pan drenched in oil flavored with cannabis butter sauce. The trick here is getting just enough heat so that they crisp up nicely without burning while also not drying out like crazy. We like to start by frying them at low heat for seven minutes, then turning the stove up and cooking for six more.
- Remove from the oil and place on the paper towel for about five minutes.
- Add your weed fried chicken to a plastic container with a wire mesh lid (like Tupperware) or layer in a Ziploc bag so that they are not touching each other, then seal tightly. This is important because you don’t want them to stick together!
- Place containers into the freezer until ready to use — heat up one piece at a time by microwaving it for 45 seconds per side. The nutritional information will vary based on how many pieces you fry and what kind of oils/seasonings used; my recipe uses less than two tablespoons of cannabis infused butter mixed with flour, salt, pepper, garlic powder, and onion powder). Cannabis can be added for an extra kick if desired (be careful not to overdo it!)
2.Weed fried chicken can also be made by substituting for panko breadcrumbs instead of flour – this will give it more flavor but less crunchy texture than regular frying would produce.
- Melt butter in a deep pot or frying pan on medium heat.
- Add flour, salt, pepper, garlic powder, and onion powder. Stir until well combined. Slowly add the milk to create a batter type consistency. This should help cut back on any potential stickiness that can happen once the chicken is fried!
- Dip pieces of chicken into the mixture one at a time – make sure it’s completely coated before letting go and dropping them into the oil! Fry for about six minutes per side or until browned. If you’re using cannabis infused butter be careful not to overdo it with too much THC content because you don’t want your guests getting “too high”!
This recipe will yield four servings if made as listed above.Serve with cannabis-infused honey mustard, ranch, or BBQ sauce!
Pros and cons
- Tastes great;
- Allows you to get creative and create a new dish that’s both delicious and healthy, but still, cannabis infused!
- More intense flavor from cannabis infused butter.
- Too much THC content can cause an itchy mouth, dry eyes, or paranoia.
The recipe is very time consuming. It can take up to an hour depending on how many pieces of chicken you’re cooking at once; it may also take more than one person if you want the process to go smoother. Cannabis needs to be legal in order for this meal to taste right (unless using cannabutter or marijuana extract). If your state hasn’t legalized weed yet then unfortunately your fried chicken will not have any THC content and would just taste like regular old tasty fried chicken!
You can use a deep fryer or Dutch oven for this recipe and just fill it up with enough oil to cover the chicken pieces. Be careful when frying as you don’t want any of the oil to bubble over and make a mess in your kitchen! You also need more than one pot on hand depending on how many people you’re cooking for because fried food is always better served fresh out of hot grease! Once all the chicken is cooked, give them some time to cool before serving so they won’t burn anyone’s tongue off – but we know that never really happens anyway…right? 😉
In conclusion, weed fried chicken is only going to be fried chicken but it tastes better than normal and we always like to say that everything tastes better with weed!
