I can feel my arteries clogging right now and I don't care.
It was delicious!
Don't judge me...
And the story goes like this...
Girl [me] goes to DC for Health Policy Society happy hour.
Girl meets up with college roommate [my wifey] who lives in Brooklyn but is from DC and is actually in town, for drinks [yes, more drinks] and dinner in Union Station.
Girl has Navajo Fry Bread Chicken Sandwich at overpriced train station restaurant.
Girl falls in love with Navajo Fry Bread and vows to make it herself one day.
Seven days later, girl fulfills that vow.
(there was non-stop giggling and laughter that night. and navajo fry bread. and more laughter. good times!)
2 cups flour
1 tbsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
1 tbsp vegetable oil
3/4 cup warm water
Sift dry ingredients together, then stir in liquids. Work the dough into a ball on a floured cutting board. wrap tightly in freezer bag (or plastic wrap) and refrigerate for at least one hour.
Chicken:4 Bone in, skin on chicken thighs
Red pepper flakes
1 Onion, sliced
Gruyere cheese, shredded
Season chicken generously, set aside. Heat some oil in cast iron grill pan on high heat. Grill onions in grill pan until translucent and browned, set aside. At this point, turn oven on to 375. Leave grill pan on a high flame until it's hot [you should smell it]. Add chicken, skin side down first. Grill on each side about 5-7 minutes. While chicken is sizzling, quarter the avocado, shred some cheese (as much as your heart desires) and set aside with onions. When all the chicken has been grilled, put in glass dish, cover with foil and finish cooking in oven, about 20-25 minutes.
Take dough out of fridge, roll it out into a rough square (I don't bake and therefore don't own a rolling pin, but a can of chicken broth got the job done). I used a drinking glass to cut out perfect circles and then rolled them wide and thin.
Add vegetable oil to a frying pan, at least half and inch high, set on high heat until hot, but not smoking (don't burn down your house!). Add rolled out dough (only 1 at a time!) to hot oil. It should fry up golden brown in about 1 minute on each side.
Put it all together...
*go ahead, drool*
