Transcript of the history of fried chicken

MAXWELL NEWMAN =) Fried foods date back to ancient cultures in Europe, Asia, and even North America.
In medieval times, fried chicken was already being eaten in western Europe.
Scottish immigrants to the United States are often credited with being the ones
to introduce fried chicken to the country where as most other European immigrants
to the country ate baked chicken. IN THE BEGINNING In the 19th and 20th century, foods like fried chicken, chitlins,
and watermelon became considered stereotypes, no thanks in part to minstrel shows, and restaurants like Sambo’s and Coon Chicken Inn. STEREOTYPES T FIRST FRIED CHICKEN RESTAURANT The first fried chicken restaurant was Kentucky fried chicken. It originated as a cafe operated out of a gas station. In 1939 a fire burnt down the cafe and it was rebuilt, the next year was the birth date of the original recipe for Kentucky fried chicken. Ingredients
3 eggs
1/3 cup water
About 1 cup hot red pepper sauce (recommended: Texas Pete)
2 cups self-rising flour
1 teaspoon pepper
House seasoning, recipe follows
1 (1 to 2 1/2-pound) chicken, cut into pieces
Oil, for frying, preferably peanut oil Fried Chicken Recipe We looked at many fried chicken recipes but this one is fairly well known:Southern Fried Chicken Directions

In a medium size bowl, beat the eggs with the water. Add enough hot sauce so the egg mixture is bright orange. In another bowl, combine the flour and pepper. Season the chicken with the house seasoning. Dip the seasoned chicken in the egg, and then coat well in the flour mixture.

Heat the oil to 350 degrees F in a deep pot. Do not fill the pot more than 1/2 full with oil.

Fry the chicken in the oil until brown and crisp. Dark meat takes longer then white meat. It should take dark meat about 13 to 14 minutes, white meat around 8 to 10 minutes. Origination Fried chicken originated from Europe,
in the middle ages. The Scots and Scottish immigrants had a tradition of frying chicken in fat. Unlike their English counterparts who fried, boiled,and baked their chicken. African American slaves had special feasts where they ate fried chicken. Chicken, A Special Cuisine They served fried chicken on special occasions or as a treat. Sometimes it was sold in the street as a snack. This provided a good way for segregated and enslaved African American women to support their families. Making Chicken Taste Better As slave trading became more popular, slaves started keeping their own chickens and making their own recipes, adding spices and seasonings not found in the original Scottish recipe. So pretty much, African Americans added their own taste to Fried Chicken. Chicken then was first was fried in fat by the Scottish immigrants. Chicken Then Then chicken started to make it's way into African American's tradition of a special cuisine. Then African Americans put their own "Pizazz" to the recipe. Chicken Now Chicken now is an really good food to eat. Instead of frying chicken in fat, we try to use healthier recipes. Including baking chicken instead of frying it in oil. All in all, we have perfected the chicken recipe our ancestors gave to us years and years ago, making it more healthier and tastier.
