Although I wasn’t raised in The South I’ve been living here for over 10 years and there is one thing I enjoy just as much as any other naturally born Southerner and that’s FRIED CHICKEN! Fried chicken is as Southern as barbecue – so what could possibly be more Southern than barbecue fried chicken? Nothing! When you try the Tangy Carolina BBQ Southern Fried Chicken it will be like coming home. Made from Lay’s Regional Flavors chips, here is my submission into the Tastes from Home with Frito-Lay! regionally inspired recipe contest.
