DALLAS (KDAF) — Fried this and fried that if you live in Texas you know you love some fried veggies, meats, desserts and everything in between.

One of the top classic fried dishes belongs to the humble and yet, over-so-popular fried chicken and it just makes sense that Wednesday, July 6 is National Fried Chicken Day! NationalToday says, “Fried chicken’s a greasy, deliciously indulgent comfort food enjoyed all over the world. But did you know that the ultimate soul food originated in our own backyard — where Scottish chicken-frying methods were combined with West African seasoning traditions — to create what is now one of the world’s favorite guilty pleasures?”
