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!

As a vegetarian, chicken doesn’t appeal to me. Fat in general, on the other hand… 🙂

I have stopped eating anything from KFC. Couple of years back I had not finished my coleslaw…you know, that feel good because you’re eating veggies? I put the container in my little fridge and forgot about it.EIGHT MONTHS later I took it out. It smelled the same with a hint more of vinegar and NO MOLD growing on it. Bye-bye fake food!

Oh snorts. That doesn’t sound good at all my new friend. KFC is just one of those places that don’t appeal to us much anymore… especially with all of their makeovers with their chicken. eeww. XOXO – Bacon

When KFC came to the outback, the grownups didn’t like it but the kids did! 😀

Snorts with piggy laughter. When mom/dad were smaller and KFC had the original chicken, it was fantastic. But throughout the years, they have changed the recipes and done weird things with the seasonings. It’s not the same. So chicken nights, KFC is not the first place on mom/dads list. Weird huh? And have you seen their new commercials with the colonel. Lowers head in disgrace. XOXO – Bacon
P.S. We know way too much about the chicken places around us – snorts with piggy laughter.

Mmmmmmmmmm…. fried chicken! I wish our closest Popeye’s wasn’t so far away…. and Church’s changed their spicy recipe! WTF!?!? The classic spicy was perfect as it was…

OMP – My mom says she is so in love with you out of the mutual respect of fried chicken – snorts with piggy laughter. Mom has been chowing down on Bojangles lately too. That’s pretty good for sure! XOXO – Bacon

I don’t think we have Bojangles up here, but we have all the other places you mention, plus Lee’s (which I don’t much care for). Heck, even the deli fried chicken the local grocery store sells is pretty good!

OMP! Don’t we know that. Publix – one of our local groceries here – has some of the best fried chicken. I can say that because if I have wrapped my piggy lips around some it. It’s wonderful for sure! XOXO – Bacon
