Deep fried chicken and beer cheese dip!

Your probably thinking "Hold up Jamie, this is not a cupcake!" I know, I know but these recipes are just too good not to share. They are not just good, they are so easy to prepare as well. I'll start with the beer cheese dip. (Oh how I wish I had a bowl at this moment)

To make this dip you will need:

  • 2 packages (8 ounces each) cream cheese, softened
  • 1/3 cup beer or nonalcoholic beer
  • 1 envelope ranch salad dressing mix
  • 2 cups (8 ounces) shredded cheddar cheese
  • Pretzels (or whatever you want to dip into this deliciousness!)

Are you ready to see how easy this is? Brace yourself...
In a large bowl, beat the cream cheese, beer and dressing mix until smooth. Stir in cheddar cheese. Eat & serve. Refrigerate any leftovers...leftovers, ha!
I am serious, that's all it is! I prefer to dip pretzels just because I like the salty taste, but go ahead and try crackers, bread sticks, anything!
Now to the chicken. I have a deep fryer and realized the other night that it hasn't been used in awhile. Maybe that is because I am trying to do this whole healthy eating thing, yeah right, like that's going well by the looks of it huh!? We decided we wanted to make some crispy chicken sandwiches so I ended up going on Google and found a Triple Dipped Fried Chicken recipe. Makes my mouth water just thinking about it. The recipe can be found here @ All Recipes.com
After the second dip into the batter, I almost couldn't believe that it was going to fit IN my deep fryer.
It fit folks, and it was amazing!
To tell you the truth, it came out so crispy on the outside and juicy on the inside that I didn't even want a sandwich anymore, I wanted to eat it as it was! Not to mention the stinkin' things were so big after the triple dip that it would have been a bit hard to eat it on a bun!
I'll stop holding back and let you see these beauties!
I know the picture is not that pretty, but I take pretty pictures of treats, not meats. :)
If you are a crispy chicken lover as I am, I highly recommend this. Go ahead, give it a try I bet you can't stop after 1 bite!
