Happy National Fried Chicken Day!
Yes, there is a National Fried Chicken Day and this is the first time I’m “celebrating” it. It’s something I should probably leave to Paula Deen, but I don’t think she’s celebrating much these days.
Fried chicken isn’t just fried chicken. Although we associate it as a Southern comfort food from the States, many cultures have their own version of this deep fried “delicacy”. There is the traditional American deep fried chicken, chicken fried steak, Japanese karaage, Korean Fried Chicken “KFC”, Taiwanese fried chicken knees, Chinese Crispy Chicken, sweet and sour chicken and the list goes on and on.
I’m not obsessed with finding “the best fried chicken”, but it’s nostalgic even though I didn’t grow up with it. Comfort food will always have its place in my heart and it might just slow it down as well. On that note, here are 10 of my favourite fried chickens I’ve had since starting Follow Me Foodie.
