    The Mysterious, Stubborn Appeal of Mass-Produced Fried Chicken


    Why do so many accomplished chefs call Popeyes their favorite fried chicken?
    It certainly is my wife’s. Me? I’m okay with it and also like KFC and Church’s.
    Fast food chains like Popeyes also buy a whole lot more raw inventory than a typical independent restaurant, and they can leverage that monopsonistic power toward consistency. “They have a very strict limit on the size of the chickens,” López-Alt says. “They'll reject any chickens that aren't in that range...Most fast food chains are pretty strict with their suppliers and have a lot of power because they buy so much.”
    Consistency. I guess that’s what makes them so popular. You know what you’re getting.
    Now, I’m gonna get accused of being racist.
    Do you know why fried chicken was such a favorite in the South?
    Because it was a spill-over from slave days.
    Before the arrival of African slaves, most dishes were either roasted or cooked in kettles. The slaves introduced frying. Most slave owners only used chickens for their eggs. When they got to old or quit laying, they were given to the slaves who fried them. Whites began to eat them and found them better than being roasted or tossed in stews.
    Anyhow, back to the article that can be read @ https://munchies.vice.com/en_us/arti...-fried-chicken

    Prefer Popeye's over KFC. Less SALTY. KFC is like a salt bomb.

    I like fried chicken, but not the mass produced kind. I fry mine in palm shortening or beef tallow only. That "vegetable oil" that fast food chains use is fit only for making soap. It isn't actually edible.

    I preferred Popeyes.

    But I ain't eating none of that shit now that they've raised the prices to 8 pieces for 22 freakin' dollars.

    Only people on welfare can afford to eat there, obviously.

    Popeye's has a 3 piece with a biscuit for $3.99. Your choice of any combination of wing, leg or thigh.


    I oughta know. That's what I had today for lunch on the recommendations of the girl I took to work there this morning. She says them old ladies bitch up a storm as to why it does not include a breast as part of the three piece.

    Me? I prefer either a wing, leg or thigh over a breast any day. In fact, Winn Dixie has buy one get one free package of thighs or drumsticks this week. We bought like ten pounds of thighs this afternoon.


    Oh yes, and Red Baron frozen pizzas, BOGO also! I love dos dings!

    I don't know about all this supposed information on slave history but I do recall a chicken dinner as pretty rare cause you needed them for the eggs, and anything other than fried I never saw.

    All the prices for take out fried chicken shot through the roof in CA, presumably because the idiots in this state voted to save the chickens on one ballot initiative and keep the gas tax on another, and no public complaint that the friggin' parasitic maggots are using their foo'stam' money to buy luxury restaurant meals.

    So, I'm done with that company until they stop accepting foo'stam'.

    Coq au vin is a French way of roasting old rooster.

    Half of chickens hatched are male and the only value of a male chicken is to make little chickens, and only need one for that, and the rest become food fairly quickly.

    An old hen would need special treatment in the kitchen to make her edible.

    Imagine the people of Papua New Guinea preparing an old hen like Hillary for the pot...

    That tough moldy ass old bird would need a slow roasting over a fire for a couple days. Then it would still be toxic.
