History of National Fried Chicken Day

Fried chicken was originally brought to the United States by Scottish immigrants. It soon became a staple among Americans for outdoor picnics and southern restaurants. Over time, seasonings and spices were added to the traditional deep-fried chicken.

Today, there are national chains based around the delicious food and long-held family recipe secrets that have stood the test of time. Celebrate today by frying up your own batch, or by taking advantage of the National Fried Chicken Day deals and freebies!
