Luke & Cheezit Fried Grouse


Last winter, Dylan and I had the opportunity (again) to hang out with some wonderful friends at their cabin in Northern Wisconsin. We woke up, made Bloody Mary's, took a long walk in the snow and Luke went grouse hunting. He got one, and made us some delicious cheezit fried Grouse. AMAZING.  


2 1/2-3 lbs fryer chickens, cut up

1 1/2 cups sunshine Cheez-It crackers, crushed to fine crumbs

1 teaspoon salt

1/4 teaspoon oregano

1/4 teaspoon celery salt or 1/4 teaspoon garlic salt

1 eggs, beaten

1/4 cup milk

1/2 cup shortening


Clean, wash, and dry chicken.

In shallow pan, combine Cheez-It® Cracker crumbs with salt, oregano, and celery salt.

Roll pieces of chicken in crumbs until well coated.

Dip chicken in mixture of egg and milk.

Roll again in remaining crumbs until well coated.

In a large fry pan, brown chicken a few pieces at a time, in shortening.

When all pieces are browned, arrange back in fry pan.

Cover and cook over low heat until tender, about 30 minutes.
