Try Dan’s Best and More Fried Chicken in the Hamptons & North Fork

Fried chicken

Whether battered, pan-fried or breaded, fried chicken is an indulgent and mouthwatering treat. During the summer months, fried chicken is an ideal pick-up-and-enjoy item to bring along for a picnic, a trip to the beach or any outdoor gathering.

The Scottish are thought to have invented the idea of fried chicken, having cooked it in fat rather than baking or broiling it. And before World War II, fried chicken was considered a food for special occasions due to the scarcity of spring chickens and the high price of cooking fat.

While fried chicken is obviously not the healthiest option, it’s incredibly tasty and a huge hit with diners. Check out these East End restaurants known for their delectable fried chicken, including Dan’s Best of the Best winners in the Hamptons and North Fork.
