Sorry Vegetarians but July 9 is Fried Chicken Day. Yes, the day is so much more than going to your local Kentucky Fried Chicken fast food restaurant. You can have your choice of white meat (breast and wing), and dark meat (leg and thigh). However, when frying chicken, there’s so much more than just cooking the chicken in hot oil.
When making fried chicken at home, many home cooks will make pan fried chicken. The key to making it is the seasoning. If you are looking for a great pan fried way to cook, check out this recipe. Don’t forget the hot sauce too!
In order to celebrate July 9 Fried Chicken Day, we created a song list of the best songs with either the word Chicken or Fried in the song title.
