tailgating 101

get your game face on! the south’s favorite time of year is finally here. saturdays during football season mostly consist of friends, good music, plenty of team spirit & amazing food to nosh on before the big game. our go-to set up consists of the obligatory sodas and chips, but fried chicken makes everything better (and may just be our good luck charm…ssshh). a side of creamy cole slaw compliments any fried dish wonderfully, or if you prefer, those hot wings bathed in sauce! if your mouth is watering already, see below for our favorite fried chicken recipe. clocking in at 35 minutes total cooking time, it’s so easy!
