Even if you adore cooking, the highest temperatures of the day hit in the late afternoon just when you start thinking, “What’s for dinner?” In summer, the last thing you want to do is turn on the oven and heat up your house, especially if you don’t have air conditioning.

It’s National Fried Chicken Day and if you want to celebrate with a unique twist, this recipe is for you.

In a shared blog post on Dramatic Pancake, Erickson described her recipe as “a fun twist on a summertime and picnic favorite.”
