Many fried dishes are served at Hanukkah. They are to remind the Jews of the oil lamp that burned for eight days, despite an amount of oil that appeared sufficient for only one day. This recipe for fried chicken, Italian style, is quite bland, so I recommend adding grated lemon and orange zests and a little minced garlic to the marinade, or consider accompanying it with an interesting conserve.
