Easy Chicken fry Recipe restaurant style

The story is much in vogue that between the 17th and 19 centuries Scottish Slave holders supplied the chicken fry recipe. Therefore, the enslaved African-Americans began to fry chicken based on the recipe provided to them. Eventually, African-American cooks accepted it as a part of their own cooking tradition.


In 1747 Hannah Glasse published a book named The Art of Cookery Made Plain and Easy where the first written recipe of fried chicken can be traced.

The origin of dry fry chicken is indeed interesting but its taste is far more fascinating.

The present recipe does not literally imitate or copy Hannah Glasse’s recipe but only follows the traditional path to create something new and unique.

Preparing fry chicken at the comfort of our own home is simply an amazing experience.
