Adina (Epicurious' features director) and I grabbed dinner at a local Japanese Katsu joint -- and I pointed out that nearly every single time she and I eat dinner together after work, we wind up eating something fried, usually chicken. So, in the spirit of this-is-what-we-can't-stop-eating-right now, here are a few of our favorite fried chicken recipes here at Epicurious.
Great for families, perfect for weekends, and a great dining-outdoors food -- why not fry some up yourself this weekend?
