JULY 6, 2013 – NATIONAL FRIED CHICKEN DAY

NATIONAL FRIED CHICKEN DAY

In the United States, National Fried Chicken Day is celebrated each year on July 6.  On this day, fried chicken lovers, across the country, celebrate this American favorite at a nearby restaurant, at home or at an outdoor picnic.

The Scottish immigrants brought their tradition of deep frying chicken in fat to the southern United States.   After it’s introduction to the American South, fried chicken soon became a common staple.  Over time, seasonings and spices were added to  enrich the flavor of the chicken.

Fried chicken is a dish that consists of chicken pieces which have been floured or battered then pan-fried, deep fried or pressure-fried.  The breading adds a crisp coating to the exterior of the chicken.  Crisp well-seasoned skin, which been rendered of the excess fat, is the make-up of well made fried chicken.

Traditionally the chicken is fried in lard, however, corn oil, peanut oil, canola oil or vegetable oil are also frequently used.

Following is a “tried and true” recipes for you to enjoy!

I like it but it doesn't go with mine and my Dh's low carb diet.  I can live without it but it's tougher for him.  He loves it.

I like it a lot but have never mastered it like my grandmother did .Having her fried chicken as a standard helps me pass it up easier.
