We were having a discussion about frying hamburgers over on home cooking and the assertion was
made that Fried Chicken is generally understood to mean deep fried, unless pan fried is specifically stated. .
Maybe it s because I grew up in a chicken town, but Fried Chicken has always meant pan fried (preferably in a cast iron skillet)to me. Deep fried is for FF places, along with broasting and other methods.
What do you think of when you hear the term fried chicken?
