3 cans red beans
1 smoked ham hock or 1/4 teaspoon liquid smoke
1 1/4 cups water
1/2 teaspoon onion powder
1/2 teaspoon garlic salt
1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes
1/2 teaspoon salt
3 tablespoons lard
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
Cooked long-grain rice, for serving

Pour 2 of the cans of beans into a 2-quart saucepan and add the ham hock and water. Simmer on medium heat for an hour, until the meat starts to loosen from the bone.

Remove from the heat and cool until the hock is cool enough so you can remove the meat from the bone. Place the meat, beans, and liquid from the pot in a food processor. Add the onion powder, garlic salt, red pepper, salt, and lard. Process for only 4 seconds. The beans should be chopped and the liquid thick. Drain the remaining can of beans and add to the processor. Process for just a second or two; you want these beans to remain almost whole.

Pour everything back into the pan and cook slowly on low heat, stirring often, until you’re ready to serve. Serve over a premium long-grain rice.

Popeye’s(™) Fried Chicken Po Boy

Today I have a secret recipe for a tasty Louisiana style sandwich served at Popeyes.  Their chicken Po’Boy has handcrafted chicken tenders on a French baguette, loaded with lettuce, pickles and mayo.  The chicken is double breaded in a hot sauce and egg mixture along with a seasoned flour mixture.  The result is an extra crispy and spicy chicken tender.

Serve these Po’Boys with Popeyes cole slaw by following this recipe on our forum: Go Here

3 eggs
1/3 cup water
1 cup hot sauce
2 cups flour
1 teaspoon pepper
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon paprika
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 ½ teaspoons cayenne pepper
2 cups butter milk
2lbs boneless skinless chicken breasts (sliced into strips)
oil (for frying)
4 sub rolls
olive oil (for spreading)
2 cups shredded iceberg lettuce
4 pickles (sliced)
mayonnaise

Place chicken strips into a large bowl and pour the buttermilk over the top of the chicken. Cover and refrigerate for 2 hours.

In a large bowl mix together eggs, water and hot sauce. In a gallon freezer bag combine flour, pepper, salt, paprika, garlic powder and cayenne pepper. Mix well. Remove the chicken from the buttermilk and place into the freezer bag, seal and shake until evenly coated. Remove the chicken from the bag and dip each chicken strip into the egg mixture and then put back into the freezer bag. Seal and shake again.

Heat oil in a deep fryer to 350 degrees F. Fry chicken in batches for about 5-7 minutes or until golden brown and fully cooked (the internal temperature has reached 165 degrees F.), turning as needed. Drain on a plate lined with paper towels.

Cut the loaf of French bread in half lengthwise. Lightly brush olive oil onto the cut sides of the French bread. Place cut side up onto a baking sheet. Place into the oven and broil, 5-6 inches from the heat for 1-2 minutes or until golden brown on top. Remove from the oven.

Spread mayonnaise onto the top and bottom of the toasted side of the bun. Top the bottom half with sliced pickles, cooked strips and shredded lettuce.

Popeyes Extra-Crispy Spicy Fried Chicken

3 eggs
1/3 cup water
About 1 cup “Texas Pete” hot red pepper sauce
4 cups flour
2 teaspoon pepper
2 teaspoon paprika
3 teaspoons cayenne pepper
1 quart buttermilk (optional)
Salt, Pepper, and Garlic Powder (to taste)
1 (1 to 2 1/2-pound) chicken, cut into pieces
Peanut Oil, for frying

Place cut-up chicken in a large bowl, and cover with buttermilk. Cover and chill for two hours, or overnight. This is an optional (but recommended) step.

In a large bowl, add eggs, water, and red pepper sauce. Whisk until combined.

In a large gallon freezer bag, mix flour, pepper, paprika, and cayenne.

Remove chicken from buttermilk (if marinated) and sprinkle lightly with salt, pepper, and garlic powder.

Place all chicken pieces in freezer bag with flour mixture. Shake until all pieces are evenly coated.

Remove chicken pieces one at a time, shaking excess flour. Dip each piece in the egg mixture, and return to bag of flour. After all pieces of been dipped in the egg mixture and put back in the bag, give it a second shake to coat chicken pieces again.

Heat oil in deep fryer or deep pan to 350 degrees. Working in batches, drop each piece of chicken into the hot oil. Fry for 15-18 minutes, or until golden brown, turning occasionally if oil does not completely cover chicken. Keep in mind that dark meat chicken takes longer to cook than white meat. Watch your wing segments, as well; these will finish cooking first.

Serves 4

Copycat Popeye’s Dirty Rice

We used to have a Popeye’s in my neighborhood, but unfortunately it closed.  I always loved the side dishes that they offered.  This recipe for Popeye’s Dirty Rice could not be more quick and easy!  Cook this up with some fried chicken, and you will be set!

1lb Spicy breakfast sausage
1/2 cup long grain rice
1 (14oz) can of clear chicken broth
1 tsp dry minced onion

Brown the sausage in a skillet until cooked through.  As it cooks, crumble the sausage with a fork.
Stir in the broth, rice and minced onion.
Cover and simmer for about 15-20 minutes or until the rice is tender.  Most of the broth should be absorbed.
