Fried Chicken and Champagne

Image from
Last night we went out for a casual dinner and stumbled upon something pretty incredible at Max's Wine Dive: Gluten free fried chicken. The crispy coating on tender chicken, served with mashed potatoes and collard greens was a decadent way to end the day. Plus, it paired perfectly with G.H. Mumm Cordon Rouge.

I love the restaurant's slogan, emblazoned on the shirts of their employees:"Fried chicken and champagne... why the hell not?!" This will definitely be a repeat destination for us in Austin, but you can find Max's Wine Dive outposts in Chicago, Atlanta, Denver, and all around Texas.

I've been thinking of trying this Buttermilk Fried Chicken recipe from Martha Stewart (substituting with GF ingredients), but the chicken at Max's was so delicious that I'm not sure I want to put the effort into cooking it!

Do you have a tried-and-true fried chicken recipe?
