About This Recipe:

"The Blue Willow Inn in Social Circle, Georgia is one of the South's most popular restaurants. This is their famous fried chicken recipe."
Many believe the house was the inspiration for "Tara" in Gone With the Wind, as Margaret Mitchell stayed nearby!
If you're in GEORGIA, you MUST eat here! Link is to an article about Billie's financial troubles after the death of her husband, help keep this WONDERFUL business alive and prospering!

"I love chicken. I would eat chicken fingers on Thanksgiving if it were socially acceptable."
