Binging with Babish: Louis C.K.'s Potluck Fried Chicken

  • Published on Mar 16, 2016
  • Sometimes an existential crisis makes you want to actually attend that potluck, so you have to make something, but you don't do desserts, so you make fried chicken, but you don't have time to brine it, so you follow Louis C.K.'s trick in this video.

    Is a mortar and pestle a common thing in people's kitchens today? Guess I need to get one. Then I'll just be tempted to wear a hooded robe and make potions and shit. I'll need a staff, maybe a one-handed sword. Crystals, spellbooks.

    My only issue is that Louie used rice crisp cereal, not corn. However I'm noticing that your early videos have incredible quality, cooking, video and otherwise. Thanks for all that you do!

    I can only chicken fry flat things... well if you want it to be fantastic, if I do stuff like fried chicken it is only very good no idea why that is though. I mean I gave what is basically a chicken fried steak with venison to my dad and his freinds and I found 4 50$ bills in my wallet that I did not have I was confused, they eventually me they paid me for that and just got too drunk and never said so. I never asked for money in fact for the first half hour I was very standoffish granted I did totally give in as it was a fun group but one guy demands I never pay for anything as it quote "Made me give up and get mad at being homophobic" food bring light to the world.
