Now, if there’s one thing I know how to do… that’s eat! I enjoy eating and indulging. I love food and trying new foods. Whether I am going to a restaurant or just cooking it up myself, I love it. One of my favorite foods is chicken. I know, pretty basic because who doesn’t enjoy chicken? In just about any form chicken can be great because it can be cooked in so many ways or mixed with so many different ingredients. It goes with just about everything!

Well, Taste of Home is naming some of the best fried chicken in every state. As soon as I saw it, I had to take a look for myself. Because when someone says “best friend chicken” you have to see what they are talking about. They took every state and did a deep dive to find the best fried chicken in each state. From Alaska and Hawaii to right here in the Carolinas. But, where do you think has the BEST fried chicken in North and South Carolina? Let’s take a look at the two spots with the best fried chicken in North and South Carolina and see what it’s really hitting on. See the full list here of every state to see what other restaurants you can try when traveling this year.

    First off, we’re starting in South Carolina. According to this list, Yogi Bear’s Honey Fried Chicken in Hartsville, SC is the BEST fried chicken in the state.
