It’s National Fried Chicken Day. Enough said.

Best Ever Buttermilk Fried Chicken

Classic buttermilk fried chicken is enhanced with an eight-hour brining sesh in a mixture of bay leaves, rosemary, thyme, parsley and honey, but the flavor doesn’t stop there. The breading gets a kick from garlic, onion, cayenne and paprika for a dish that is just as poppin’ in flavor as it is in golden brown color.

Jamaican Fried Chicken

This chicken dinner will transport you to a Jamaican beach. It packs heat, incorporating spicy flavors from hot sauce, curry powder and ginger. Serve with coleslaw and sweet plantains — and a frozen cocktail — to give your taste buds a cool down.

“Man-Catching” Fried Chicken with Honey Pecan Glaze

This southern-style chicken is drizzled with a thick sauce of butter, honey and pecans. It’s so sultry and sweet, it’ll catch you a man.

Nashville Hot Fried Chicken

Over in Nashville, Tennessee, they spice their chicken in all sorts of directions, apparently. The marinade, breading and hot sauce — a glossy combination of butter, hot sauce, cayenne and brown sugar — each contain red hot heat, which gives the chicken major flavor and gorgeous color.

Ranch Fried Chicken Tenders

Make these no-nonsense tenders if you’ve only got the essentials on hand. They’re simply dipped in eggs, breaded in flour and Ranch dressing mix, and fried until golden brown. Because tenders are meant to be dipped, whip up a quick sauce of mayo, ketchup and black pepper for good measure.

Japanese Popcorn Chicken (Karaage)

If you’re craving fried chicken and Japanese flavors at once, this is the dish for you. Small pieces of chicken are marinated in sake, soy sauce, ginger and garlic before they’re fried in a potato-starch breading. Serve them in popcorn bags for an unforgettable movie night.

Baked Bang Bang Chicken

Something about the combination of panko breadcrumbs, basil and spicy mayo just screams, “BANG!” When you take a bite of this chicken, flavored with chili and garlic, you just might yell it out yourself.

Filipino Fried Chicken

If these guys look a little thin to you, it’s because they are. Unique in that they have no breading, these Filipino-style drumsticks are tossed in a simple mixture of spices and thrown directly in a pot of oil for about 20 minutes on low heat for a moist and toothsome meal.

Oven-Fried Buttermilk Chicken

Want all the flavor of buttermilk fried chicken without busting out the oil? This simple recipe uses an easy buttermilk-breading method, followed by an hour in the oven, so you have time to watch an episode or two of your favorite show as the smell of chicken wafts through your home.

Korean Fried Chicken

Korean fried chicken — dressed in apple cider vinegar, honey, soy sauce, and gojuchang (or Korean red pepper paste) — is no joke. The spicy chicken pieces are studded with white sesame seeds for color contrast and a touch of nuttiness.

Brazilian Wings

Mix up a quick marinade of lime juice and garlic, and soak the wings overnight. They’ll be so bright and citrusy, you won’t believe how easy they were to make.
