Everybody loves fried chicken. That statement may not exactly be a fact, but the truth is that try as you might, it’s an almost impossible feat to find a person who doesn’t love fried chicken. What’s not to love? It’s easy to eat – you can eat it with your hands, with a fork and a knife, even with chopsticks. It can be paired with waffles, veggies, fries, pasta, or rice. It can be dressed up in different rubs, coatings, and spices, but it’s delicious in its most basic form, too. Fried chicken is popular across the globe that possibly every country has its own well-loved traditional fried chicken recipe. Here are a few of the world’s top favorites:
1. Skillet Fried Chicken (Southern USA)
Skillet fried chicken is a staple in birthdays, Sunday lunches, and big family gatherings in the Southern parts of the USA. There is much debate on which is the authentic Southern fried chicken recipe as it can vary from one home to another, but what characterizes Southern fried chicken is marinating it in a bath of buttermilk and spices such as garlic salt, black pepper, and paprika. Southerners love their skillet fried chicken with a generous siding of mashed potatoes, vegetable salad, pickles, and/or potato salad.
