National Fried Chicken Day – Oh Have Mercy!

06 Jul

Journalist Rocky the Squirrel here –

Keeping my paws on the nuts of the world! 


 July 6th is National Fried Chicken Day.  On this day, enjoy your crispy, tasty, finger licking good fried chicken.  Fried chicken has got be one of America’s favorite meals.  You know right up there with apple pie!  And you know what?  Fried chicken is good hot or cold right out of the refrigerator.

We all know that fried foods aren’t good for us but every once in a while, you just have to splurge on some great chicken. And today, I *had* to mention this national holiday because Bacon’s mom is a huge fan.  No, let me change that.  Bacon’s mom is a ginormous fan of the fried chicken.  And yes, even the little booger Bacon likes his share as well.  It’s tasty – however you get it.

And the good thing about fried chicken is that it comes in many different forms.  Almost everyone thinks that their recipe is the best recipe.  You have KFC (Kentucky Fried Chicken) when it was really KFC – not this newer lighter better for you version they are putting out there.  Heck, that’s another news update for another time!   You also have Church’s which is really good.  Their pieces of chicken are huge and oh so wonderful.  And, you even have a place called Bojangles that has really good fried chicken.

Then, you have Bacon’s parents favorite chicken – Popeyes.  You can get it either spicy or mild.  Mom likes it mild and dad likes it spicy.  That Bacon, he eats it either way.  Look at that picture of the chicken.  Doesn’t that fried chicken look just about next to perfect?  Can you tell that we are from the south and we adore chicken??

So, on this day – you enjoy some fried chicken from your favorite place – even if it’s your own kitchen.  I am totally sure they will be having Popeyes at the Hotel Thompson!

    I like Popeye’s once in a blue moon…so I guess I should get some this month! 😀

    Home-made fried chicken is my favourite – pan-fried in olive oil with a touch of butter…the skins come out nice and crispy!

    Mom has never tried popeyes as she doesn’t eat any kind of spicy food but this weekend her and dad went to “The Potters House” a soul food restaurant and dad has their friend chicken and said it was some of the bet he has ever tried. Mom has oxtail which she totally loved and they had cornbread Mom said was to die for 🙂

    Some of the old cafes on the squares around the small town courthouses has the best – real – fried chicken. The new stuff can’t compare.

      Old school seems to be the best- especially here in the south. Now, I want some friend chicken – snorts. XOXO – Bacon

        Gettin’ harder and harder to find the real thing….there’s a place on the square in Huntsville that had all that good homemade food. Bonnie and Clyde used to stop in and eat…guns and all. My dad saw them there when he was delivering papers

        Squeals! That would have been so cool. I love this hole in the wall kind of old school restaurants. You are so right – they are the best. XOXO – Bacon

    And I nearly had a roast chicken today, but gave it a miss, as it was already late and I was not home yet.

    Why does this day only happen once a year? There’s just something wrong with that. 😉

      Snorts – my mom so agrees. I think that woman can eat chicken seven days a week. Daddy tells her that when she was born and the doctor slapped her on the butt, she cackled like a chicken – double snorts. XOXO – Bacon


This piggy would love to snort with you :)
