Chef Lorena Garcia is stopping by the TODAY kitchen to share two of her favorite easy and flavorful warm-weather entertaining recipes. She shows us how to make crispy Latin-style fried chicken with onions and a zesty kale slaw.

Chicken Chicharrón with Smothered Onions

"There's fried chicken; then there's chicken chicharrón," says Garcia. "What's the difference? A good chicken chicharrón is gifted with supremely crisp skin and is first rubbed with lime. After frying, it's brushed with a garlicky vinegar for a great pop of acidity."

Kale Slaw
