Celebrate National Fried Chicken Day and Give ‘Em the Bird!

July 6th is National Fried Chicken Day!

Heat up your deep fryers folks, today is National Fried Chicken Day! The choices are endless, from fast food giants like KFC and Popeye’s to famous southern cooking specialty restaurants like Justin Timberlake’s Southern Hospitality or P. Diddy’s Justin’s. You can even find fried chicken for breakfast like at one of our favorite restaurant chains, Roscoe’s Chicken & Waffles.

Traditional southern fried chicken is definitely a diet splurge, with most servings containing anywhere from 550 to 1,000 calories in just the chicken alone! So if you want to celebrate and still be a bit more health conscious practice some portion control and cut it up for a fried chicken salad. Or be creative and get the southern fried chicken sliders from The Cheesecake Factory

Want to make it yourself? There are countless recipes and tips online on great sites like www.allrecipes.com and we found this great heart healhy “fried” chicken recipe alternative on the Kitchen Mirror and no there’s no tofu!

So however you like your fried chicken, wing, leg, breast, take out or homemade one thing is for certain: fried chicken is “finger lickin’ good” fun! Don’t believe us? Just ask Roscoe!
