San Antonio Non Dairy Fried Chicken Recipe from the Meadow Restaurant

Fried Chicken – San Antonio “Meadow Restaurant” Dairy Free Feb 2023

A recipe gleaned from a San Antonio Cooks cookbook from the Meadow Restaurant. Author of the book is Julia Celeste Rosenfeld. The book is available via Amazon or your local bookstore. I note that it calls for smoked paprika and also Spanish paprika. Now, historically, one defaulted to Spanish paprika when one wanted a smoked paprika. Also noted, I'm not too sure about that Mexican oregano. If I make this, I will probably reduce the amount or eliminate altogether. I'm comfortable with the other ingredients and I think that dry mix for the batter is going to be a good one. The soy sauce in the marinade is another interesting riff. That adds salt. 

I look forward to dining at The Meadow, to sample their fried chicken on a future visit to San Antonio.
