Giveaway is live on my instagram! . Freight Fried Chicken draws its inspiration from black women in post Civil War America that sold fried chicken to rail passengers traveling through Gordonsville, VA. The women became known as Waiter Carriers and their chicken recipes would attract travelers who would go out of their way just to try the famous chicken. The sale of fried chicken allowed formerly enslaved women to support their households and create racial progress in a time fraught with dissension. . 🍗 All of the chicken is gluten free and the bone-in chicken is #halal . #eldereats #texaseats #sanantonio #thepearl #friedchicken #chickentenders #hotchicken
