Chef Chad Rosenthal spent years cooking in barbecue world before competing on “Food Network Star” in 2014 and Food Network’s “Chopped Grill Masters” in 2015. While filming “Chopped” in Northern California he was struck with inspiration to create the perfect fried chicken. He spent years perfecting his recipe, and in 2020 Motel Fried Chicken was born. Coming to a city, state, and motel near you.
Rosenthal’s fried chicken is brined in a secret mixture of herbs and seasonings and dredged in buttermilk before being fried to moist and crispy golden brown perfection, and finished with a dusting of herbs. It’s perfect on its own, but when tucked into a potato bun with a schmear of mayo, a few dill pickles, some Memphis slaw, and a sprinkle of hot seasoning, it’s sheer perfection.
