While you're frying up some eggs and bacon, we're cooking up something else: a way to celebrate today's food holiday.
Winner, winner, chicken dinner! - July 6 is National Fried Chicken Day!
Roll up your sleeves, plunk your elbows on the table and sit down to some crispy fried slap-somebody-it's-so-good chicken. Whether you're a wings lady, a legs man or you're not picky at all, enjoy this deep-fried traditional Southern favorite today - hot or cold.
Southern belles ourselves, my mom and I will be the first to tell you that the secret to perfectly fried chicken is as follows: soak the chicken in buttermilk, season your flour (spices are up to you) and be sure to dip the chick in egg BEFORE your dredge it through the seasoned flour. Give it a whirl in the oil until golden brown and BAM! You've got some darn good chicken.
