Happy National Fried Chicken Day!

This is indeed a joyous day of fried chicken observance. Who doesn’t like fried chicken? The honored dish is making a huge resurgence here in Houston, and so I imagine it is everywhere else also. Just this year I have fallen in love with Korean Fried Chicken and Indian Fried Chicken.

I had already planned a breadcrumb coated sauteed chicken breast dish for tonight so that will have to do, but my favorite is a crispy bone-in thigh.

Did anyone stateside have fried chicken today?

I wish I had known about this sooner! I love fried chicken!

Do we really need a special day to celebrate fried chicken?

Thanks to your observation, I observed it as well.

Chicken Fried Chicken at Union Kitchen.

No pics, but darned tasty. Thanks for the heads-up.

I heard about it somehow, so we got Popeye’s Spicy Fried Chicken to celebrate. Mashed potatoes and mac and cheese on the side. :slight_smile:

Happy National Fried Chicken Day 2017!

Popeye’s Spicy for lunch. I wish I could get to BBQ Inn, but it’s not “Inn” the cards.

Unaware of the celebration today, I ordered fried chicken last night!

Whoops, ah well. I thought this was posted on the Houston page. I’ll move some of this.

Follow up:

As I’ve noted before, I don’t eat much fast food anymore and it’s been awhile since I’ve had Popeye’s.

I used to love their wings because they were so large and had a lot of meat. Yesterday’s were disappointing. All of the pieces were very small.

Also, I wished the manager/cashier a “Happy Fried Chicken Day” and it was news to her.

Oh well. No one respects traditions any more. :wink:

I went to Lucille’s yesterday and wished the server Happy National Fried Chicken Day, he nodded and returned the sentiment.

They were serving great looking fried chicken and it was coming out of the kitchen fast and furious with mashers and greens. I stupidly ordered a salad.
