National Fried Chicken Day – July 6

NATIONAL FRIED CHICKEN DAY

In the United States, National Fried Chicken Day is celebrated each year on July 6th.  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.

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