Fried Chicken Day celebrates one of America’s favorite foods. The preparation of deep frying chicken probably came to the US through Scottish immigrants, but it was in the southern US where it really took root. The modern recipe was probably created when the old Scottish tradition was combined with African flavors brought to the country by slaves. Today fried chicken is considered a southern comfort food and an American classic. Some fried chicken restaurants may offer deals on this day, so check out locations near you to find out if you can get some discount fried chicken.
