Be among the first 100 to receive your FREE chicken wings
Chicken is loved by so many millions of people and for this event, there will be free chicken handed out! International Fried Chicken Day is celebrated on 6th July 2019 this year. This is good for the public as several places give chicken away on this day.
Now you can get ready for this finger-licking goodness that is chicken. Flinders Lane's Vietnamese gem, Co Hanh, has got a real treat coming up for International Fried Chicken Day.
Its doors are going to open at 4.00 pm and then Co Hanh will be handing out FREE fried chicken to the first 100 customers who come into the shop. These hundred lucky people will be treated to a takeaway box filled with 6 pieces of sticky glazed fried chicken wings smothered in Co Hanh's signature sauce!
To add to the passion, Co Hanh will also be dishing out two tasty fried chicken specials which will only be available for a short time. This will include a sticky fried chicken bao and banh mi, both accompanied with some cucumber and pickled carrots.
These specials will be available from the 1st to 6th of July as part of their dinner menu. Co Hanh is located at 348 Flinders Lane and it is open for lunch and dinner from Monday to Friday, and dinner on Saturday nights.
About Fried Chicken Day It was Scottish immigrants that first brought their tradition of deep-frying chicken in fat to the southern United States. After its introduction to the American South, fried chicken soon became a household name, so to speak! As time went on and the chicken became more sophisticated, there were seasonings and spices added to enhance the taste and flavour of the chicken.
Fried chicken is a dish that consists of chicken pieces which have been dipped in flour or battered and then pan-fried, deep-fried or pressure-fried. The batter or breading adds a crisp coating to the outside of the chicken.
Traditionally the chicken was always fried in lard. However, nowadays with all the different oils around you can fry it in corn oil, peanut oil, canola oil or vegetable oil and most of these are used frequently. In the U.S alone, over 8 million chickens are consumed and probably many of these are battered and deep-fried.
