Southerners take their fried chicken seriously, whether they fry it up themselves with generations-old family recipes or they swear by their favorite restaurant.

The love for fried chicken is no longer just a Southern thing, and it is increasingly becoming a popular dish across the country. Using reviews, awards, recommendations and taste tests, Mashed recently compiled a list of the best fried chicken in each state.

"As much as Americans love their burgers and French fries, there's growing proof that there's something this nation loves even more: fried chicken," adding, "Instead of going with the most convenient fried chicken, do yourself a favor and go out and track down the best of the best. You're worth it, and your taste buds will be eternally grateful."

Which Tennessee restaurant got the coveted title of "best fried chicken"?

Here's what Mashed had to say about the best fried chicken in Tennessee:

"At Prince's Hot Chicken, it's a given that you'll be ordering their hot chicken. They only question remains is how hot you want it. While the hottest option is called XXXHOT, you really don't want to go much beyond Hot unless you know what you're doing. Then again, even their spiciest fried chicken is so flavorful that you won't mind the discomfort."
