Nothing screams “home” and “comfort” better than juicy, tender chicken like the spicy aroma chicken. No matter how old you are, a good meal of deep-fried chicken will always have a special place in your heart, and it will always be an indulgence.
It’s unhealthy if you eat fried chicken all the time, but a treat to yourself after a hard day’s work isn’t so bad. Balancing out your meal with vegetables and fruits are a great way to ensure that you get sufficient amounts of the daily nutrient requirements.
What is Spicy Aroma Chicken
With its unique name, you’ve probably guessed that this chicken dish is unlike any other that you’ve ever tasted. This specially-crafted recipe from A&W is meant to take your taste buds on a culinary journey that delights your senses.
Of course, A&W is not letting anyone in on their secret ingredients, but suffice to say that their chicken is breaded with carefully-picked herbs and cooked to golden perfection. The meal can be paired with root beer or a root beer float to make it a complete A&W set.
The History behind Fried Chicken
Fried chicken is a classic in the fast-food industry today, and while every restaurant has its own speciality recipe, fried chicken actually has a humble beginning. Believe it or not, the fried chicken was actually invented by the Scottish. While everyone else was baking and boiling their chicken, the Scots decided to deep-fry their chicken, and they then brought the recipe with them to America.
When slavery was still legal in America, chickens were the only livestock allowed to be kept by the slaves. Thus, they adopted the Scottish way of deep-frying chicken for special occasions and gatherings.
Even after the abolishment of slavery, racism was still at large, and restaurants banned black people from dining in. Hence, the fried chicken remained as the go-to dish for African-Americans because it was easy to prepare, and the cooked meal is more comfortable to travel with. Besides, frying the chicken allows the chicken to remain flavourful and spoil so quickly.
Over time, the fried chicken continued to grow in popularity and became one of America’s favourite go-to dish. When KFC introduced their recipe to the world, it set a worldwide phenomenon that made the fried chicken a symbolic fast food dish. Today, fast food outlets are continuously finding ways to innovate and come up with new fried chicken recipes.
A&W and Fried Chicken
Those who grew up with A&W know that unlike other fast-food restaurants, A&W is well-known for their root-beers, Coney dogs and waffles. For a long time, A&W only had these food products on their menu. However, in 2013, A&W opened its first new concept restaurant, A&W Burgers Chicken Floats. Hence, they featured new menu items such as burgers with beef and a choice of toppings, hand-breaded chicken tenders, beef hot dogs and fried chicken.
