Fried Chicken by Rebecca Lang is a small book, but it's packed with deliciousness.
When I first heard about this book, I wondered how there could be enough fried chicken recipes to fill a whole book. Would there be a lot of filler? Would the recipes start getting redundant?
But no, the recipes are truly different from each other - different techniques, different cuisines, and different sauces and extras.
There isn't a separate chapter with "things to serve with chicken" but there are a few recipes that aren't chicken, like the waffles to go with chicken and waffles and the tomato gravy that goes with the southern fried chicken.
What I thought was really unique about this book was the "combination fried" recipes that included a smoked and fried chicken - have you ever heard of that before?
If you're a fan of fried chicken and you want to try some new recipes, this book is highly recommended. Since it's small and not expensive, it would also make a great stocking stuffer, or an gift to go along with other cooking tools.
