That might be how you could describe me. I could go on for a while being 'the' ugly chicken or 'an' ugly chicken or just 'plain' ugly chicken. I feel like a chicken sometimes like at the very top of the steepest water slide at the water slide park the very first time - you know the feeling dont you that really tall one that all the teenagers go on that drops straight down? I certainly feel ugly both inside and out. I have been posting my poems lately, these were written 14 years ago but they still ring true today. I am not always the victim in my writings in fact I am often the grief giver. I tried to use them as a catharsis but it only worked as a reinforcement. I should have created an art movement like 'dada' or 'bauhaus' I could have called it 'ugly inside and out'. I could still do it! We could criticize each other to the point of anger. It could be ruthless. No one is a winner everyone cheats and things end up missing. Loves are lost hearts are broken but we will keep on recruiting because its fun to be ugly inside and out and we want others to join us.
I made ugly chicken
It looks even more ugly in person. Full of flavor though, buttermilk bath for over an hour loaded with seasonings and then a flour dusting and a bread crumb coat. If you are noticing you see I left out egg bath....big mistake. All the dry goods fell off in the oil and I had to keep fishing them out so they wouldnt burn. I left the egg out on purpose. 1) it freaks me out a little to coat chicken with egg is that oedipal or is it me? 2) there is no number 2 I feel like its overkill to use chickens with their eggs. Any other meat no problem, duck egg bath and chicken would even work for me but chicken on chicken - I try not to does that make me wussy. Leave out the egg bath and this is what you get. You can do it but baking is the key - not frying.
