Finger-Lickin’ Fried Chicken

Fried chicken – some like it extra crispy. Others prefer it boneless, in the form of tenders. Some chop it up and mix it in a salad while others toss it with hot sauce, and eat it off the bone.

It’s National Fried Chicken Day! Who’s ready to celebrate with a mouth-watering plate of chicken?

There are endless possibilities when it comes to this versatile dish, but here are a few local favorites.
