According to the website Taste Inc., the average American eats over 201 pounds of meat annually and over 8 billion chickens are consumed every year.

Thanks to Yelp and Insider.com, there's a new list of the best fried chicken in every single state. Some of the criteria used by Yelp to determine rankings included total ratings and reviews mentioning fried chicken.

And since you're curious (and possibly hungry), according to the list, the best fried chicken in the Garden State comes from Kelsey and Kim's Southern Cafe located on Melrose Avenue in Atlantic City! All of the homemade food at Kelsey and Kim's gets great reviews, including the mac and cheese, cornbread, yams, and of course the fried chicken.

I've got to try the chicken and waffles for lunch one day!
