Naturally, that caliber of praise is going to come when a fighter goes on a six-fight winning streak and leaves a collection of top-ranked talent wrecked in his wake, but circumstantial descriptors are not what Johnson chooses to focus on. The... Granted, being the champion of the 125-pound division is a position he covets, but a title is nothing to rest on in his world. via split decision to earn the inaugural flyweight title, the Matt Hume-trained fighter has shifted gears and elevated his game in every showing since. Whereas some fighters have fallen victim to complacency once they've obtained the label of champion, Johnson resides at the opposite end of the spectrum. Rather, Johnson is continuously looking to find new physical limits and push his talents to new levels. It makes me happy that people think I keep showing new things because I believe I am as well. I'm always showing that I'm a very versatile champion and I'm not just good at one thing.
The term “classic” can be freighted with wildly varying baggage, especially when attached to something as iconic as fried chicken. Many Scottish immigrants settled in the South, bringing the deep fried dish with them (fellow Europeans preferred to bake, roast or boil chicken). According to The Urban Daily , “When African slaves who worked as cooks were brought to the country, they put their own spin on the dish using seasonings and spices not found in most Scottish dishes. ” As with many classic dishes, generations of home cooks, chefs and fast food chains have put their own spin on fried chicken, making defining a single classic version impossible. What’s impossible to miss is how fried chicken has been on a major upswing the past several years. Chicken shacks have been opening practically around the clock north of the Mason-Dixon Line, it seems, with many well-pedigreed chefs at the helm. Our own efforts to explore the phenomenon here in Chicago have been thwarted by long lines and places running out of chicken every night. So when I came across a couple of recipes for chicken that was fried for a bit, then baked, I was intrigued. See, another problem I have is that I have never deep fried anything.
