The Tuesday night fried chicken at WATERSHED is a tradition that won't be disappearing anytime soon, judging from the throngs who still show up to devour executive chef Scott Peacock's signature dish. Subtly crispy on the outside and juicy inside, the chicken and its sides of green beans, mashed potatoes and biscuits are an archetypal taste of America. Remember to make reservations and go early - it usually sells out by 8 p.m. Want to try your hand at the legendary fried chicken? Grab of copy of Peacock's "The Gift of Southern Cooking", written with his mentor Edna Lewis. "406 W. Ponce de Leon Ave., Decatur. 404-378-4900. www.watershedrestaurant.com" less...

Fried chicken is one of those foods that appeals to all Americans regardless of race, gender, age or degree of culinary snobbery. Atlanta's restaurants serve a lot of tasty birds, but the best in the city is still served on Tuesday nights at WATERSHED. Made from a recipe jointly developed by the restaurant's executive chef Scott Peacock and his friend and mentor, Edna Lewis, the chicken is first brined for a day, marinated in buttermilk a second day, then cooked in a combination of lard and butter flavored with a slice of country ham. Tender-crisp green beans, sumptuously buttery mashed potatoes and delicate biscuits round out the meal. Wash it all down with a lovely glass of wine from the restaurant's worldly selection. "406 W. Ponce de Leon Ave., Decatur. 404-378-4900." less...

Executive Chef Scott Peacock takes us higher every Tuesday night with his sacrosanct rendition of the fried chicken dinner at WATERSHED. The bird is brined in salt water, then soaked in buttermilk and finally seasoned and pan-fried in lard. Served with homey biscuits, crisp-tender green beans, and supple, buttery mashed potatoes, this is a meal that does a soul good. Come early, though, because there are no apologies offered when they run out for the night, which is usually by 8 p.m. "406 W. Ponce de Leon Ave. 404-378-4900." less...

When it comes to fried chicken, you can't go wrong at KFC. The chicken isn't extraordinary, but it's consistently good.

When it comes to fried chicken, you can't go wrong at KFC. The chicken isn't extraordinary, but it's consistently good. Whether you choose regular or extra crispy, the chicken tastes juicy and not too greasy. Plus, you can enjoy sides meant to accompany fried chicken, such as mashed potatoes and gravy. Lately, the chain has experimented with the Colonel's original recipe, serving chicken in wraps and sandwiches. Still, the fried chicken is the best reason to go. less...

The bad news is that you can only get it Tuesday nights and it sells out fast. The good news is that Scott Peacock's pan-fried chicken is a living testimonial to what Southern cooking is meant to be. Soaked in salt water, marinated in buttermilk, dredged and fried in the teen-iniest bit of lard, Peacock's chicken defies the old Cab Calloway claim that "chicken ain't nothin' but a bird." less...
