My eggciting experience cooking fried chicken
Updated: May 2, 2020
One important life skill which I have been trying to improve during lockdown is cooking. I love cooking food and always like experimenting with different cuisine. Because of the lockdown it is advised to avoid ordering food from outside, so I decided that why not make something different for dinner for the whole family. I chose to make fried chicken and chips which are my dad's favorite. When I cooked last time the meal did not go so well so I was a slightly nervous this time. So I gathered my ingredients and the courage and got ready. I wasn’t scared about cooking the chicken as I had prepared fried chicken before and I learnt from my previous mistake which was not marinating the chicken for long enough which actually turns out to be one of the most important steps so I allowed the chicken to marinate for sufficient time. This was the first time I made chips(fries) from scratch and to my surprise it actually wasn’t that difficult but quite quick and simple. After all the cooking came judgment time and I really wanted my father to like the food (he is a hard person to impress and he is doesn’t hesitate to express his opinion whether good or bad) as the last time he wasn’t the biggest fan but this time he actually liked it and was amazed that I made all of that from scratch. That was the best thing I did that day and it’s the feeling of appreciation which makes everything worth the time and effort.
Fun Fact Of The Day –Before WWII, Fried Chicken Was a Special Occasion Dish. Today fried chicken is considered fast food but up until the early 1900s, fried chicken was a dish that was usually reserved for special occasions and holidays, due to the relative scarcity of spring chickens and the need for such a high volume of fat.
