National Fried Chicken Day at Blue Bamboo

Posted on July 6, 2012 in the Local Happenings, Must Reads, Resources, Techniques, Updates category by Dennis Chan.

July 6 is National Fried Chicken Day.
For us at Blue Bamboo, there is nothing more comforting than a piece of juicy and crispy fried chicken.  This Southern specialty is found on the plates of both humble food trucks, shacks, and fine dining places alike, all over Jacksonville.  The oldest fried chicken place around here is Beach Road Chicken Dinners, which opened right here in our neighborhood in 1939. Here’s their website:
The trick to our crispy fried chicken at Blue Bamboo is our Japanese panko breading. We dip our chicken (breasts only) in Buttermilk before coating to keep the meat moist. An alternating dip between  wet and dry ingredients ensures that the breading doesn’t separate from the meat,  and seasoning each step in the process keeps it flavorful.  When frying, we won’t ever overcrowd the fryer, and we make sure that the oil is at just the right temperature.
We serve our fried chicken many ways.  Currently on our menu, we are offering general’s style fried chicken, sweet and sour fried chicken, fried chicken pot pie, and best of all, we make a peachy southern fried chicken and waffles.
So, happy Fried Chicken Day!  Come on by if you are in the neighborhood.  We’ll be happy to whip up some of our fried chicken specialties for you.
