Who Invented Fried Chicken?

Fried chicken originated in the American South. Later in time, as the African slaves were introduced to household cooking they added seasoning and spices to give flavor to fried chicken. Because of this, Southern whites and the Scots continued the tradition of frying chicken because it tasted so good. Since chicken was cheap it was the main food of the African slaves and poor whites (for their Sunday meals). To this day many cultures enjoy eating fried chicken!
