Fried chicken, a staple of Southern Cuisine, is a popular comfort food. You can choose to fry your favorite parts of the chicken, but the most popular choices are breast, thigh and wing. Typically the bones and skin are left intact when making fried chicken. To prepare the chicken for frying, the pieces are dredged in flour and sometimes marinated in buttermilk to form the crispy coating when frying. Traditional Southern recipes call for lard to fry the chicken in, but you can use any type frying oil. Look for cooking oils with a high smoke point though, to prevent the oil from breaking down. You can pan fry, deep fry, or even make fried chicken in a pressure cooker. In this video, Chef Mark gives an online cooking lesson on how to make fried chicken.
