Fried Chicken Lovers: Disneyland Resort is the place for you! Celebrate National Fried Chicken Day on July 6, by taking part in the inaugural Disneyland Fried Chicken Celebration July 6-8.
You can find Fried Chicken at two locations at the Disneyland Resort – Plaza Inn at Disneyland park and Flo’s V8 Café in Disney California Adventure park. Both restaurants serve up a unique take on this all-American favorite!
Feeding Disneyland guests since the parks opening days is The Plaza Inn, formerly known as the Red Wagon Inn, with many of the furnishings handpicked by Lillian, Walt Disney’s wife. The restaurant’s signature chicken plate features three pieces of herb-seasoned fried chicken served with mashed potatoes, mixed vegetables and a buttermilk biscuit.
The culinary director at Disneyland park, Chef Jonny Hall, explains “our [Plaza Inn] sweet and savory brined chicken is lightly coated in a secret flour blend of garlic and spices, then fried under pressure to create a delicate and magical crunch. This simple approach known as ‘broasting’ results in a distinct deep golden brown color and crispy exterior, and an unbelievably juicy interior.”
Over at Cars Land in Disney California Adventure guests will find Flo’s V8 Café, a Route 66-inspired diner. With vintage-style gas pumps and tailpipe light fixtures – the nostalgia is strong here! And so is the love for Flo’s Famous Fried Chicken which is served with roasted garlic mashed potatoes, gravy and seasonal vegetables.
According to Chef John State, culinary director at Disney California Adventure park, “our [Flo’s V8 Cafe] chicken sings of toasted flour and notes of a rich egg batter scented with prominent ground black pepper spice. While the exact science to this recipe is a secret that’s only known to Flo, we use a traditional basket fryer, ensuring there is a pronounced crunch with every bite and the meat is filled with sweet-salty juices.”
So don’t forget to celebrate National Fried Chicken Day at the Disneyland Resort July 6-8th – your tastebuds will thank you!
