Chicken seems to be the current “it” protein and continuing to grow in popularity. Crispy chicken sandwiches have maintained their appeal (along with the fried versions) especially at fast casual establishments. New variations are still being introduced with eager anticipation and great fanfare. Chef Andrew talks about the enduring appeal of cluck and the secrets of success for Chick-fil-A who get credit for originating the chicken sandwich in the fast casual space.
Next Saturday morning (August 13th) Chef Andrew continues his informative tutorial on chicken. He’ll talk about the safe handling of raw chicken in the home kitchen.
