i haven't had kfc in probably a decade, but not that's not because i'm above eating fast food fried chicken once in a blue moon. there's just better choices.

we have lots of popeye's around (which are only slightly better than kfc) but you have to go there within a half hour of their opening to be sure that it'll be good. any later and it's a crap shoot. you have to get lucky to get something that's been fried and immediately served to you. usually it's been sitting around for a while getting soggy and rubbery. yuk.

but there are a number of small chains like crown chicken in harlem, and chicken delight, and the chicken and rib crib in jersey that make really good fried chicken.

the chicken and rib crib will fry your chicken as you order it if it's not during the lunch or dinner rush, so it's super fresh, hot, and crispy.

btw, has anyone else noticed that many popeye's fried chicken places are changing their signs to say popeye's louisiana kitchen?

Back in the late 80s/early 90s there were a few Popeye's around here. I really enjoyed their red beans and rice and spicy fried chicken. Sadly, they haven't been around for quite a while.

The recent ads for 'Pope Yes' chicken have been emphasizing the Louisiana connection.

I am just interested to know
I've never eaten fried chicken. To be quite honest, I don't care for deep-fried foods and deep-fried foods don't seem to like me, either. I used to eat french fries way back when, but starting about ten or so years ago, I went through a period where every time I ate something like that I felt physically ill afterward. I don't know if it was my body trying to tell me something or if it was all in my head but, regardless, there isn't any point in eating food that makes you feel bad.

It's been awhile. I can't remember the last time I drank enough to have a hangover. I'm pretty much a one and done drinker these days.

you have my enduring respect for that.

most people, including myself, have little self control in such matters.

Me too Z!! Actually, I'm shocked it's too salty for me as I'm a real salt lover and use way too much of it, but KFC is just over the top with salt!
