Watch: Inside Auckland's biggest fried chicken festival

Is there anything better than a basket of hot fried chicken?

Even the pickiest of eaters would be hard-pressed to find a bad thing to say about deep-fried chicken coated in a crisp batter; and slathered in hot sauce for good measure. 

Originally from South America, fried chicken has become a staple across the world due to its mouth-watering simplicity.

It can be paired with fries, crammed between the buns of a burger or tossed in sauce and eaten on its own. No matter how it's served, it's always good. 

During the final week of July, Auckland foodies congregated at Shed 10 on the Viaduct for The Food Truck Collective's annual fried chicken festival. 

A variety of local food trucks set up shop for a celebration of crispy, succulent goodness - and the vast array of options did not disappoint. 

From traditional Korean fried chicken to spicy Louisiana wings and crunchy chicken burgers, there was something for everyone. 

As well as the incredible food on offer, the festival included a bar selling craft beers, carnival games and live music.
