How This Recipe Came to Be
Somewhere on a farm in Anytown, U.S.A. lived a chicken. For the sake of anonymity we'll call her Yolko Ono. One day, Yolko Ono saw something on the other side of the road and decided to investigate. What she thought was a worm was actually a twig and she darted back to the other side of the road disappointed. Everyday, Yolko Ono mistook the twig for a worm and would dart back and forth across the road. This erratic road behavior gave way to jokes and laughter. The other hens would cackle, "Why did the chicken cross the road? To get to the other side of course, they all laughed. However not all were joking and laughing at her. The young roosters were beginning to take notice of Yolko Ono's bravery. Word soon got around to the other hens about the reputation Yolko Ono was getting among the young roosters. This word emboldened the other hens to cross the road daily to impress the young male birds. It wasn't long before it became a daily routine for all the hens to dart back and forth across the road for no other reason than to get the young roosters' attention. Then the fateful and inevitable day arrived. A farmer driving down the road struck what he thought was a pothole. The farmer hopped out of his car and saw that he had actually hit some chickens. He yelled out to his wife, DORIS! Get out the air fryer, I finally hit some of those birds that keep crossing the road.
So the next time someone asks, Why did the chicken cross the road? To end up in the air fryer of course.
