Fried Chicken

When it comes to fried chicken, the Bluegrass state is legendary. Afterall, this is the birthplace of Kentucky Fried Chicken.

Before he was "the Colonel", Harland Sanders began selling his secret recipe poultry, touted for its mouthwatering 11 herbs and spices, from his roadside restaurant in Corbin, Ky., during the Great Depression.

Today his Louisville-based company is known across the globe as KFC and is part of Yum! Brands.

Fried chicken in Kentucky is known for being floured or battered and then pan, deep or pressure fried.

You can find this deep-fried culinary goodness on the menu at many Louisville restaurants from fast to fancy.

Or you can try your hand at making it from scratch with this recipe from Bourbon & Biscuits.
