Chicken in the Rough was a franchise concept for restaurants serving fried chicken which was offered in more than one location in the Birmingham area in the 1940s and 1950s.

The copyright for the marketing materials featuring a rooster holding a golf club, and the patent for a special griddle, was held by Beverly Osborne of Oklahoma City, Oklahoma. He came upon the idea of a cheap "finger food" meal during the Great Depression. The restaurants served unjointed fried chicken with french fries, biscuits and honey.
