Grease Is the Word: Fun Fried Chicken Alternatives
There are thousands of recipes for chicken floating around the Internet, magazines, and in your own recipe collection, but good old-fashioned fried chicken is an enduring favorite that's always sure to please.
Even in this age of weight-watching and health-conscious meal choices, fried chicken hasn't been abandoned entirely. It has, however, been reworked again and again to adapt to cooking styles other than deep-frying by emphasizing flavor instead of grease.
There's still something to be said for the original recipes for fried chicken, that good old comfort food that brings back memories of family reunions and backyard fun for many of us. Paired with a tangy potato salad and hot buttered corn on the cob, it simply can't be beat.
However you like your fried chicken, there's always room for more tasty ideas and variations on well-worn family recipes.
