Fried Chicken side dish and serving ideas

Fried Chicken

Fried Chicken

Crunchy and golden on the outside, tender and juicy on the inside. Fried chicken is the undisputed king of the fried food. For the best flavor make fried chicken with bone-in and skin on chicken pieces. You can of course fry boneless, skinless chicken but it may be prone to drying out.

Some people soak the chicken in buttermilk for hours, other just for a bit before frying. Then there is the dip into the flour, seasoned to perfections, now to double dip or not to double dip? That extra dip into the buttermilk and flour again can make your chicken extra crispy. When frying be sure not to crowd your pan so you get a nice crunchy skin and properly cooked inside.
