Joyful personal experiences involving this favourite childhood dish had the talented chef Carlo Miguel thinking: why not open a classic country fried chicken concept? "I have always wanted my food to reach a wider audience, fried chicken is something eaten and understood in every household so I want to share my family recipe with other families. The main inspiration behind Country Chicken are my food memories of the fried chicken my mum made for me when I was young. I also wanted it to be true to the southern roots of fried chicken and really kick the flavour up a lot," shares Carlo.
Who doesn’t love a crackly, crispy, deep-fried piece of succulent chicken? Some would even say that it is the holy grail of comfort foods. Sinking your teeth into a freshly cooked serving, with or without gravy, can knock you right into a state of bliss. “For me a great fried chicken has to be crunchy on the outside, juicy on the inside and tasty right through to the bone. With simple sides, and tasty gravy, I don't think many people would pass it up," the chef says honestly, and we totally agree with him.
