...and there it is! Salt Water Fried Chicken stuffed with Meatballs. I decided to make the old Francese sauce that goes with it too.
You can tilt the pan and spoon away any unwanted oil that came out of the meatballs...but don't throw it out! This delicious oil can be used again to start a Risotto or to make the roux for another batch of Francese sauce.
Who has ever heard of Fried Chicken Stuffed with Meatball ? Nonna style.
Stuffed Fried Chicken with old style Francese sauce.
When Italian people try to make French Fried Food; it's Francese style; also pronounced Fricasee in English.
My family kept making this old Brooklyn recipe although it was nearly lost and forgotten to the world due to the rise of KFC and the trend toward low fat cooking.
We simply spooned out the excess oil and used it to make Risotto or more Francese sauce.
