Late Summer Gazpacho

This delicious was developed by @vegukate.

Bubbie’s pickles are so tangy, crisp, and flavorful that they make each and every spoonful of gazpacho out of this world. It’s the perfect combination of sweet, salty, sharp, sour, and delicious – you’ll be obsessed too.

I’m very picky when it comes to my pickles, and Bubbies ticks all my boxes. Unlike several pickle varieties (the ones that you find in the shelf-stable section of the grocery store, not refrigerated section), Bubbies pickles are lacto-fermented, meaning that bacteria cultures naturally present on cucumbers (also known as lactobacillus) are responsible for transforming cucumbers into tangy, fermented pickles. This is how fruits and vegetables have been fermented and preserved for centuries, way before we started using vinegar to pickle.

The result is a perfectly fermented pickle loaded with flavor and naturally occurring good-for-you bacteria. What could be better?
Juicy heirloom tomatoes + cooling cucumber + fresh herbs + flavor-loaded Bubbie’s Dill Pickles = a late summer gazpacho to stay cool the last few hot days of summer.

To begin, cube your chicken and place in a container or bag with buttermilk and preheat your oven to 400 degrees.

In a deep dish/wide plate add your breadcrumbs, flour, salt, pepper, and paprika to set up your assembly. Next, remove your chicken pieces from the buttermilk and place in the breadcrumb
mixture one by one, coating entirely.

Place on a baking sheet with parchment, spread apart. drizzle on a little olive oil over the coating nuggets to get crispy in the oven. Place in oven for 20-35 minutes until cooked through and crispy.

In the meantime, make your oil by heating up oil on medium-high heat. In a separate bowl, mix all your dry ingredients. Once your oil is hot, remove from heat and add in your dry ingredients to the hot oil. Mix well and add your vinegar and hot sauce.

Once your chicken is ready and crisp, dunk your nuggets in the hot oil and cool on the baking sheet with paprika and salt to top. Serve with pickles!
