LAREDO, TX. (KGNS) - Barbecue chicken may be a summertime fan favorite, but this weekend you need prepare your poultry with a little more grease, that’s because Wednesday is National Fried Chicken Day.

It is observed every year on July 6.

According to NationalDayCalendar.com, the practice of deep-frying chicken in fat was imported to the U.S. by Scottish immigrants.

So, in a way, it’s a very appropriate independence week observance, celebrating one of the highlights of America’s rich cultural melting pot.
