A recipe for Spicy Corn Relish
Mix celery, coleslaw, blue cheese dressing, salt and pepper and cilantro to make a slaw and refrigerate.
Cook the sugar, vinegar, paprika, Tabasco and salt until the sugar is dissolved then turn it off. Cut the chicken and dip in flour seasoned with salt. Fry until golden in a large frying pan on medium-high heat, about 6 minutes total. Turn the chicken when it is browned, then drain 1/2 of the oil, add the hot sauce, stir to coat and then turn it off and spread the chicken out onto a baking pan to cool to room temperature.
To plate spread a ring of corn relish around the outer edge of the plate to the rim, fill the center with slaw, leaving a center well. Place cooked Buffalo chicken in the center well, mounding the pieces. Garnish the chicken pieces with a scallion brush that appears to be growing out of the center of the chicken.
Suggestion: Serve chicken at room temperature.
