Fried Chicken Forever
We can’t get enough of this American classic
It’s tough to imagine anything more irresistible than juicy, golden fried chicken. Whether it’s in the form of a hearty sandwich or a surprising finishing touch to a seafood dish, below are five delicious ways chefs across the country are showcasing this American classic.
Buttermilk Fried Chicken Sandwich at Maple & Pine, Quirk Hotel
At this buzzy eatery, chef David Dunlap marinates chicken in buttermilk for extra flavor and tenderness. Then, it’s flash fried before getting garnished with a sweet-and-sour green tomato relish and crispy bacon.
Texas Fried Chicken at Revolve Kitchen + Bar, Hotel Derek
It’s the sides that elevate the classic dish in this version. The cornbread gets a smoky, spicy hit thanks for bacon and jalapeno. House made pickles provide a crunchy, tangy contrast. And the honey is the perfect sweet dip for the savory meat.
Wood Roasted Alaskan Halibut at Tidal, Paradise Point Resort & Spa
Consider this creative dish a contemporary take on surf and turf. A generous piece of halibut is wood roasted until it’s flaky, and accompanied with tender asparagus, sweet corn, fragrant garlic, and get this: fried chicken wings.
Fried Chicken at Nelson’s, Terranea Resort
It doesn’t get any more comforting than this blue plate special, which is available only on Mondays. Imagine moist, crispy chicken pieces surrounded by mashed potatoes, gravy, biscuits, and coleslaw. It’s a delicious way to begin the week.
Chicken Fried Chicken Sandwich at Huey’s Southern Eats, Wild Dunes Resort
At this Southern-inspired eatery, a crunchy breast is tucked between a sesame seed bun, then topped with house made pickles and in true Southern style: a slathering of Duke’s mayo. Every bite is satisfying and indulgent.
