Fried Chicken: Recipes for the Crispy, Crunchy, Comfort-Food Classic by Rebecca L

Book Description:  An irresistible cookbook featuring more than 50 family-friendly fried chicken recipes--including classic Southern, globally influenced, and skillet- and deep-fried variations. 
     Fried chicken is comfort food at its finest. Served alongside a biscuit, atop waffles, or just on its own, fried chicken is one of the most universally loved foods around. In Fried Chicken, Southern chef Rebecca Lang collects 50 of the most tantalizing, crowd-pleasing variations on the classic. There are perennial favorites like Buttermilk-Soaked, Bacon-Fried Chicken Smothered in Gravy; Tennessee Hot Chicken; kid-friendly Chicken Fingers; and even Gluten-Free Southern Fried Chicken. Also featured are internationally inspired recipes, such as Saigon Street Wings, Chinese Lollipop Wings, Mexican-Lime Fried Chicken Tacos, and Korean Fried Chicken with Gochujang Sauce. All of these recipes are impeccably tested, foolproof, and will have the whole family singing the praises of perfectly fried poultry.

My Thoughts:  We LOVE chicken!  But, alas, I can't seem to cook chicken and especially fried chicken well at all. I was SO happy to receive this book, Fried Chicken:  Recipes for the Crunchy, Comfort-Food Classic by Rebecca Lang.
Ms. Lang begins the book with the basics:  different oils to use, different types of flours and the parts of a chicken.  This is a great introduction!
This is a smallish hardback book that is filled with some mouth watering chicken recipes.  My favorite recipe is on page 53, Camden's Favorite Chicken Fingers.  Oh!My! Move over Chick-Fil-A!  These chicken fingers are so delicious and were easy to make.  Now these are fried in oil on top of the stove.  
There is even a wonderful recipe for Buttermilk Biscuits on page 74.  And a recipe for Hot Honey Sauce on the opposite page so that you can make your own chicken and biscuits.  
The pictures are so nice and colorful (actually mouth watering!).
Most of the chicken recipes are either skillet fried or deep fried.  
A lovely cookbook!  Chock full of chicken recipes!
This Fried Chicken cookbook makes a wonderful gift for that cook on your list!
