The Best Dang Fried Chicken Recipes For A Summer Cookout (Recipes)
By Cooking Panda
It’s National Fried Chicken Day. Enough said.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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 — 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.
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.

Baseball Stadiums Officially Have The Craziest Foods (Photos)
By Cooking Panda
Don’t expect any Cracker Jack or cotton candy on this list. Major League Baseball has taken concessions over the top in recent years, and 2017 is no exception. There’s cheese on cheese, churros on doughnuts and all kinds of things on funnel cake. Check out these insane ballpark eats to find out which baseball game you’d like to see next.
Cinnamon Roll Ice Cream Sandwich With Bacon
Here she is. Cinnamon Roll Ice Cream Sandwich at Kauffman Stadium. 1,770 calories. ❤️ pic.twitter.com/So6PoMsVse
— Julia Morales (@JuliaMorales) June 7, 2017
It’s an ice cream sandwich unlike the world has ever seen, one made of a split cinnamon roll filled with vanilla ice cream and topped with candied bacon. Get it at Missouri’s Kauffman Stadium.
New to Chase Field this year: the Churro Dog. pic.twitter.com/drUK3rITxX

Someone decided it was necessary to put a churro inside of a doughnut, and it brought the boys to the yard. But the madness doesn’t stop there; the churro dog is topped with a few scoops of ice cream, dolloped with whipped cream and drizzled with chocolate and caramel. Snag one at Arizona’s Chase Field.
Lobster Poutine Stak
— Darren Rovell (@darrenrovell) March 16, 2017
Speaking of poutine, here it is with an unexpected companion: fresh lobster meat. It’s served on a bed of steak fries with cheese curds, lobster bisque and a sprinkling of chives. Get it at Boston’s Fenway Park.
Pulled Pork Patty Melt
— Darren Rovell (@darrenrovell) March 15, 2017
You wouldn’t guess it from the title, but this sandwich is far from ordinary — because it is, in fact, a funnel cake piled high with barbecue pulled pork, shredded cheese, fried onions, coleslaw and a skewered jalapeno popper. Another hit from Missouri’s Kauffman Stadium.
Chicken Funnel Cake Sandwich
Fried chicken is sandwiched between pieces of funnel cake and slathered with strawberry jam, cheddar cheese and maple syrup — and seasoned with garlic and black pepper. Try it at Arizona’s Chase Field.
Brunch Bloody Mary
— Darren Rovell (@darrenrovell) March 30, 2017
If you’ve ever wanted to have a cocktail for lunch, this is the concession for you. A Bloody Mary is served in a mason jar and is garnished not only with something green, but with a skewer of bite-sized fried chicken, waffles, doughnuts, bacon, sausage and an egg. Drink up at Tampa’s Tropicana Field.
Most Valuable Tamale
So this is the MVT (Most Valuable Tamale). There's a boomstick inside it. Camera for scale (real, not miniature toy) pic.twitter.com/4mKrQPtoks
— Levi Weaver (@ThreeTwoEephus) March 30, 2017
Inside of this two-foot tamale lies an equally long hot dog. The whole thing is covered in chili, nacho cheese and jalapenos, as this is what Texans do. If you’re brave enough, grab it at Arlington’s Globe Life Park.
Mac and Cheese Twister
Mac and cheese becomes handheld in a soft, warm pastry cone. And it doesn’t have to be all alone in there, since you can fill it with crab meat, buffalo chicken or pulled pork, of course. Try it at Baltimore’s Oriole Park.
Apple Pie Nachos
— Kari Van Horn (@KariVanHorn) March 21, 2017
Have nachos for dessert with these cinnamon-sugar chips (like Taco Bueno’s delightful treat) topped with apple pie filling, whipped cream and plenty of caramel. But here’s the thing: they added cheese. Snacks on these at Denver’s Coors Field.
