Here are some tips for preparing great spicy fried chicken. Separate the chicken wings into small, manageable pieces by cutting where the joints connect. Preheat your pan and keep the oil at about 350 degrees and watch for splattering. To prepare any type of slaw, it's best to shave the vegetables into thin slices; a mandolin works great for this. Prepare the slaw while the wings are frying and be sure to clean as you go.

After graduating with honors, he went on to hold positions at several well-known Atlanta restaurants including Atlanta Grill at The Ritz-Carlton, Two Urban Licks and Woodfire Grill.
