Chicken & Waffles, Shrimp & Grits and a Country Breakfast with ham and biscuits are just a few of the new delicious dishes now offered all day long at The Derby. Check out this amazing menu, below:
The Derby has definitely been added to my list of restaurants to try in NYC. I’d love to be able to get in to try the Southern Fried Chicken – especially since July 6th is National Fried Chicken Day! To celebrate, Derby executive chef, Jeff Kreisel, is sharing 5 tips for making amazing fried chicken.
Tip 1: Always look for All-Natural or Organic chickens, 3-31/2 lbs.
Tip 2: Cut into 8 pieces separating drumstick from thigh, and cutting breasts in half.
Tip 3: A brine of equal parts salt and sugar will help keep chicken moist.
Tip 4: Soak in buttermilk for up to 1 hour before dredging in seasoned flour.
Tip 5: Fry at a low heat like 325F for a crisp and golden crust, and make sure the internal temp reaches 165F before serving!
