Season 01, Episode 04 — “USA”
Si and Dave lift the lid on the origins story of one of the world’s favourite fast foods – southern fried chicken. Richmond, Virginia, is home to an African American community – many of whom are direct descendants of the 19th-century agricultural slaves. Chicken was of such low status at the time that the slaves were allowed to rear their own chickens and ultimately offered them a route to freedom.
The Hairy Bikers are on a mission to find the best chicken and egg recipes in the world. Biking across Europe, the Middle East and America, the boys celebrate the versatility of both chicken and egg.
