If you’ve been following along for a while, you’ll recall my visit to Hill Country. Since that visit, the same guys opened up Hill Country Chicken in Flatiron. I joined a couple friends for lunch there a couple weeks ago.
They offer two different kinds of fried chicken, Hill Country Classic or Mama Els’ Recipe. Classic is just how you’d expect and the Mama Els is fried chicken without the skin. I know that fried chicken without the skin sounds crazy. I definitely did.
I ordered a thigh of each kind. The classic was delicious with crispy, tasty skin and a juicy inside. The Mama Els was surprisingly great. It was so full of flavor that it didn’t even need the skin. Of course, I’ll probably choose the classic if I had to pick one though. In addition to the chicken, I got to try some of the pecan pie my friend got. Quite delicious as well. Did I mention that there was Maker’s Mark in it?
