Popeye's is pretty good. KFC has really gone down hill over the last decade or so...we really don't ever go there. My favorite for "national" chicken chains is "Church's" They have huge pieces, and a wonderful crust. I'm a fan of legs and thighs, and they always have a special on a legs and thighs box for about $.75 a piece.
I'm cook pretty good fried chicken myself, but it's just so messy to make.
Oh...and to answer the thread title....the Pope would say "yes" to my chicken. :)
