Fried Chicken Taco + Chipotle Corn Gourmaise
of about 100 different ways to enjoy a fried chicken taco, this may very well be my most favorite. it would be yours too, if you tried it. make this, i dare you! a crispy, golden chicken tenderloin laid over a bed of romaine lettuce, chipotle corn gourmaise and chopped green onions.
take a bite out of that. crispy golden fried chicken with savory juices on the inside, sweet yellow corn simmered into the subtle, but bold flavors of a chipotle gourmaise.
this recipe requires fried chicken. =) i season chicken with lawry’s seasoning salt, salt, garlic powder and pepper. i fry on low to medium heat until golden brown.
the chipotle corn gourmaise will take, at best, 15 minutes to prepare. i chose to use low fat half and half for a healthier alternative for a creamy base. if you would like the full creamy experience, feel free to use heavy whipping cream.
