|What is Fried Chicken Day?|
Fried Chicken Day, like Chicken Wing Day and Cheeseburger Day, is a national celebration of a favorite American food. It falls on July 6th each year, when the average person has already had their fill of hotdogs and hamburgers on Independence Day. Local chicken franchises and home style restaurants honor the day with special pricing and coupons for customers. The European method of deep frying chickens in fat (rather than baking or boiling the fowl) comes from Scotland, while the addition of flavorful spices is characteristic of West African cuisine.
Back in the day, only young chickens were considered tender enough for fast cooking at such a high heat. This made fried chicken a traditional springtime and summer dish. These days, fried chicken is readily available all year through. While a popular chain restaurant may have a secret recipe, there’s no secret that you can easily pan fry your own chicken tenders at home to celebrate Fried Chicken Day. It’s a perfect time for a family dinner!
