Dedicated to My Father, Who Was Greatest Fried Chicken Lover I Have Ever Known!
Fried chicken was very important in my family, especially to my Father. We were from Ohio and I remember that we had fried chicken every Sunday.
My Mother was from Belgium so she had to learn the American ways and learned to cook it with the help of my Grandmother. I can remember the picnics and family reunions and there was always enough fried chicken for everyone, and "seconds" and "thirds" were not a problem.
This website is dedicated to my Father and his love for fried chicken. He has passed that love onto me. Below, you will find 25 unique fried chicken recipe videos to try. I learn better by watching than reading and I thought others would also. Please vote for your favorites and you can also add your own.

The Historical and Healthy Tour of Fried Chicken
Film at Eleven
The art of deep frying foods has been around since the middle ages and fried chicken has been around since the 18th century.
In the United States, it became popular in the South. Poultry was relatively easy to raise and were plentiful.
Fried chicken came out of the South and into the rest of the United States with the advent of fast-ffood merchandising such as Kentucky Fried Chicken.
Many families eat fried chicken at least once a week but with the increase of health consciousness , there have been new ways to prepare the chicken, which in turn will lead to lowering cholesterol and heart-related illness. Some of those recipes are included below.
Fried chicken has become a cultural food for Americans. Chicken itself, along has become the meat of choice for many people who no longer eat beef or pork. Many people eat fish, but the majority of the population still eat more chicken.
There is huge trend towards organically raised chicken. This is because the meat is hormone free (chicken feed) and the chickens are free-range. In other words, they are not kept in small cages or coops for their whole lives and their diet is natural. Organic foods are optimal because of the lack of pesticides, herbicides and other substances that have been shown to cause health problems in people.
Although many of the recipe videos below may have some substances that you don't want to ingest, you can always substitute an organically raised chicken in and the food will be healthier. If I were you, I would stay away from lards and hydrogenated oils. Somehow, organically raised meats also just taste better. I have been eating them for years and can really tell the difference when I eat something that is not organic.
