Fried Chicken is one of the best things to happen to the bird. The crispy exterior providing a beautifully seasoned crunch, the hot and moist chicken underneath, soft and succulent and as the two combine, its the perfect marriage of flavours, textures and temperatures. Oh, fried chicken, be mine?
The best thing about this dish is that every type of cuisine has its rendition and its not specific to any country or region as such. You could enjoy the Nashville-Hot, the Taiwanese Night Market chicken, the ones served with rice in Thailand or the Japanese version! All delicious, all fried chicken!
Here’s a list of some of the best-fried chicken in New York City:
1. Bobwhite Lunch & Supper Counter
Here the chicken pieces are dipped in sweet tea, that makes the meat tender, brushed with buttermilk, moving the tenderising prices further along, then breaded and pressure fried. Pressure frying is a tedious yet sure-shot technique that makes the meat greaseless and the coating crunchy. Bobwhite makes the list for its unmatched simplicity that high-end restaurants cannot provide. This is fried chicken done right.
Atoboy casts an ethnic spell on the classic fried chicken. And yes, its mighty delicious! The meat is separated from the bone, brined and marinated in pineapple and pickled jalapeños for a sweet and spicy kick, fried to golden-brown perfection and served with a piquant peanut butter and chilly sauce. This fried chicken goodness is definitely one among the best.
3. The Commodore
The Commodore fried chicken bases all of its money on the thick and crunchy crust. It is the perfect example of a classic fried chicken, with meat that oozes juice and seasoned to excellence. This place is open till late and is all the wholesome comfort food you need after a booze fuelled-night of partying.
