Southern Fried Chicken

History of Fried Chicken (Wikipedia)

Fried Chicken Was Invented by the Scottish

It was actually the Scottish who were the first to deep-fry chicken in fat (the rest of the world usually baked or boiled it), and they brought the dish with them to America. Fried chicken provided some means of independent economy for enslaved and segregated African-American women, who became noted sellers of poultry (live or cooked) as early as the 1730s
