To know me is to know that I know fried chicken. I’ve probably eaten at over 1000 establishments in my lifetime that serve fried chicken. I’ve eaten fried chicken in 47 of the 50 states and I am not one to leave a chicken challenge on the table as I will go to multiple places in a city if there is an argument about who’s fried chicken is the best.
Fried chicken is an art form. To get it right, requires balance and careful attention to detail. One would think that it had to be fried pretty to be good but I’ve learned that looks are only a part of the equation.
