History of Cracker Barrel

While it may seem like there’s a Cracker Barrel restaurant location off of every highway in the country, this chain restaurant had to start small somewhere. The first Cracker Barrel was established in 1969 by Dan Evins in Lebanon, Tennessee. Evins was a sales representative for Shell Oil and hoped that opening a traditional country restaurant would increase gas sales. He designed the restaurant after the old country stores he remembered from his childhood, the name coming from playing chess off of barrels and the fact that country stores usually sold crackers. The restaurant was meant to target travelers seeking a delicious home-cooked meal, which explains why their locations are off interstate exits and close to hotels. As Cracker Barrel success grew, the restaurant became a corporate chain establishing new locations all across the country. The restaurant is also one of the leads in billboard advertisements, which you may have seen a few if you’re a road trip type of person. No matter where you are, a good home-cooked meal is never far away, especially with delicious copycat recipes like this one!

This recipe looks super easy, but I wonder how good it is if there aren't many seasonings in it...

The butter milk and SP is all u need. That is where your flavors come from.

I've never tried the chicken at Cracker Barrel, but this is something I would definitely love to make for dinner!

Fried chicken is such a delicious treat, and everyone always loves it. This would be great for a potluck!

This chicken looks better than Cracker Barrel's because they tend to over cook their Sunday special until it looks almost burnt!

Yeah! It'll be good to be able to control it for myself. I'm looking forward to trying it.
