Yes, there will be oven-fried chicken.
What's on Ina Garten's Fourth of July menu? Barefoot Contessa classics, of course.
Here's what will be stealing the show in the Garten household: "My Oven-Fried Chicken is the best of all worlds. I marinate the chicken in buttermilk so it’s moist, then fry it quickly on the stove so it’s crispy, and finally, I roast it in the oven so it’s not at all greasy. Even better, I can do the messy part (the dipping and frying!!) before guests arrive and just throw the chicken in the oven to finish cooking before dinner," she wrote in a recent blog post regarding her Independence Day menu selection.
Her entire Fourth of July menu and links to the recipes are featured on her site's homepage. Just thinking about the dishes that will accompany the chicken is making our stomachs growl: Tomato feta salad, sautéed fresh corn, guacamole and then s'mores with homemade toasted coconut marshmallows and flag cake to round out the feast.
