What Does Zaxby’s Fry Their Chicken In?
Welcome to Zaxby’s, where we take pride in serving you deliciously crispy and flavorful chicken. If you have ever wondered what we use to fry our chicken, you’ve come to the right place. In this article, we will discuss the main ingredient we use to create that perfect golden crust on our chicken – our frying oil.
The Choice of Frying Oil
At Zaxby’s, we understand the importance of using high-quality ingredients to ensure the best taste and texture in our food. When it comes to frying our chicken, we use a specially formulated blend of oils that guarantees a crispy exterior and juicy interior.
Our Signature Frying Oil
Zaxby’s chicken is fried in a blend of oils that includes soybean oil, canola oil, and peanut oil. This combination of oils helps us achieve the desired flavor profile and texture that our customers love. Our frying oil is carefully selected to provide a neutral taste that allows the natural flavors of the chicken to shine through.
Benefits of Soybean Oil
Soybean oil is a commonly used cooking oil due to its versatility and health benefits. It is low in saturated fat and is a rich source of omega-6 fatty acids, making it a heart-healthy option. Soybean oil also has a high smoke point, which means it can withstand high temperatures without breaking down or producing harmful compounds.
Benefits of Canola Oil
Canola oil is another key component of our frying oil blend. It is known for its light texture and mild flavor, making it a popular choice in many culinary applications. Canola oil is low in saturated fat and contains a good balance of omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids, promoting heart health. Its high smoke point makes it ideal for deep frying, ensuring our chicken cooks evenly and achieves that perfect golden color.
Benefits of Peanut Oil
Peanut oil is the final ingredient in our frying oil blend. It is widely recognized for its ability to enhance the flavors of fried foods. Peanut oil has a high smoke point and a naturally sweet and nutty taste, which adds a unique depth of flavor to our chicken. It also contains monounsaturated fats, which are considered heart-healthy and can help lower bad cholesterol levels.
Quality and Safety Assurance
At Zaxby’s, your safety and satisfaction are our top priorities. We take great care to ensure that our frying oil meets the highest quality and safety standards. Our frying oil undergoes regular testing to ensure that it remains fresh and free from any contaminants that could compromise its quality.
In addition to quality assurance, we also take steps to minimize the risk of cross-contamination for our customers with food allergies or dietary restrictions. While we strive to avoid cross-contact, please be aware that our chicken is cooked in the same fryers as other menu items, which may contain allergens or ingredients you wish to avoid. We encourage you to inform our team of any food allergies or dietary restrictions so that we can accommodate your needs to the best of our ability.
