Spice up your date night with a Calabash Chicken Dish

Updated: Jul 13, 2022

There are many ways to spice up an amazing date night! But, what starts an amazing date? This can be up for a debate, but i will stand by FOOD! Food sets the tone to an amazing night in or on the town. Food that you can speak too and Food that speaks back. Weird right!? Hahaha.

A food that speaks back is this amazing, scrumptious, juicy, mouthwatering , golden ,flaky and crunchy CALABASH CHICKEN; Just imagine, feeding your person a warm and crunchy bite of heaven, that slaps their taste buds with joy from the subtle hint of cayenne pepper and hot sauce. The small amount of juice that will roll down the side of their lip from the oozing juiciness of the chicken. In every bite the chicken IS talking to you and them, begging you to want more and more.

Our calabash chicken is marinated overnight. Marinated in buttermilk, cayenne pepper, smoked paprika, special hot sauce, and our (HF) all purpose special spice blend (our power secret, AND IT IS FOR SALE). We marinate it to lock all the flavors down to the bone marrow, because we chew on that too. We are not weird , I promise and are not the only ones (thank god!). This can be served with a plethora of different side dishes. Our favorite is whipped garlic mashed potatoes and nutmeg/ 3 cheese cream spinach. We just dropped a gem, so don't let it go over your heads! Mac & cheese (recipe for sale on site), coconut peas & rice, macaroni salad, loaded baked potato , etc..etc..etc. Moving along, you get the picture. SUPER VERSATILE.

Deep Fry it at a steady 350 degrees, after coating it in 1/2 flour and 1/2 cornstarch mixture. Why cornstarch you may ask? That's the golden ticket to this and any crispy fried chicken. That's the southern roots kicking in I guess. There is such a satisfaction, when chicken hits the hot grease. This is another sound that speaks to you, letting you know, when this chicken comes up, it's going to be sooooo crunchy, juicy and golden. It is out! now you may want to make a dripping and sticky sauce that's going to stick to you and your dates lips with icky deliciousness. An amazing go to is a soy ginger honey hot sauce. We won't go into that here, but the sky is the limit with sauces for this calabash chicken. Dream big and date spicy!
