Well, today is National Fried Chicken Day and a perfect time to think about chicken in the fried form.

The funny thing for me is that I can't stand raw meat, and only in the last couple of years have I been able to cut up a chicken breast raw to cook for dinner. I always used to cook it first, then cut it up. And the thought of KFC just makes my skin crawl, because I think of all the raw chicken in that kitchen and that just makes me sick. When I worked for the buffet in high school, Monday was always chicken breading day, and one of the prep cooks would bread tons of chicken for the week. I couldn't even walk through that area of the kitchen when that was happening. YUCK!

However, when it's cooked I enjoy it in many forms, and fried is one of my favorites!
