Default Re: Chemistry question: Is frying chicken a chemical or physical change?

By physical you mean that it's caused by high temperature and low humidity?
Because if you mean the changes in structure of meat this process is not only physical but also chemical.

Proteins denaturation, Maillard reactions (between amino acids and reducing sugars), changes in collagen and connective tissue etc. are all chemical reactions induced by physical conditions.
