Mozzarella covered southern fried chicken thigh, sweet potato, and broccolini


I’m really enjoying these prepared pieces of southern fried chicken thigh. I buy them as a two-pack. Back in the day, I’d eat both in one sitting. Now, what I should do is cut each piece in half and keep half for lunch the next day.

If you haven’t tried using a mortar and pestle to pound your black whole peppercorns, I highly recommend it. It’s like the pepper sings in your mouth.
