Fried Chicken: Recipes for the Crispy, Crunchy, Comfort-Food Classic by Rebecca Lang is small cookbook with gorgeous pictures for nearly every single recipe. When I knew I was going to have the opportunity to review a book called “Fried Chicken”, it couldn’t get here quick enough! I mean really, who doesn’t love fried chicken? And who knew there were so many ways to fry a chicken. After the introduction, Lang jumps right into Fried Chicken 101, with great information selecting a chicken, how to cut a chicken, ways to cook it, and so much more.
The 3 core chapters of this book are Skillet Fried, Deep Fried, and Combination Fried. The Creole Chicken and Buttermilk Waffles on p. 32 and the Coco-Cola Slathered Wings on p. 84 have my mouth watering. The Saigon Street Wings on p. 88 and the Filipino Adobo Chicken Thighs on p. 82 are 2 recipes that are not my normal type of chicken I would cook, but they have me intrigued. I think this is a great cookbook for those who love fried chicken and want to expand their skill set when it comes to ways to make fried chicken.
I am thankful for Blogging for Books who sent a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.
