Take your pick …
I like breast (no pun intended). My wife’s choice cut is usually wings while our son Gabby likes anything fried less the skin.
Regardless of how it was cooked, chicken has been a favorite in Pinoy dining tables… The warm broth of Tinolang Manok is always delicious especially on a rainy day. Who doesn’t eat Chicken Adobo? Perhaps only those who have allergies and those unfamiliar to it. Fried chicken is definitely a winner sans ketchup or gravy. There’s just so many ways on how we enjoy this product of poultry.
In no particular order (of yumminess), here’s my simple ode to that finger-lickin’ goodness…
CAFE ADRIATICO’S CHICKEN A LA KIEV.
This is one of my favorite dish in Cafe Adriatico. It’s just so sinful that once you dip your fork into it, it bursts its secret filling – butter!!! It’s one of those I consider “I-can-eat-this-everyday” meals… LOL
I’m craving now….
TGIF’s JACK DANIEL’S CHICKEN. I like that it’s grilled to perfection and that Jack Daniel sauce is unforgettable.
PEPPER LUNCH’S CHICKEN PEPPER RICE. Although I am bias with PL’s Beef Pepper Rice, this tender chicken strips + only outer shell of peppercorn + PL’s (to-die-for) honey brown sauce + do-it-yourself-cooking = delicious meal
PANCAKE HOUSE’S PAN FRIED CHICKEN. What’s unique with Pancake House’s version of fried chicken? Nothing but the crunchiness of its skin (which is God-forbid, cholesterol-rich!) and perfect frying of the meat plus that smokey flavored gravy.
SAVORY’S FRIED CHICKEN CLASSIC. That oriental-tasting gravy separates Savory’s from the rest.
WORLD CHICKEN’S GRILLED CHICKEN FILLET with RANCH SAUCE + PESTO PASTA & POTATO SALAD.
I just love this combo from World Chicken!
BALIWAG’S LECHON MANOK + ATCHARA/PICKLED PAPAYA. = emergency food ! This has been a part of our home meals whenever we ran out of time to go to the grocery or my wife or our house help failed to cook for whatever reason. I like it with pickled papaya on plain rice, garlic, or java plus extra gravy please…
CONTI’S CHICKEN BALLOTINE. Conti’s menu consists of simple dishes with extraordinary tastes. And this Chicken Ballotine is no exception. It’s similar to Chicken Cordon Bleu with fillings & stuffings rolled with the chicken and served with cream sauce. Yummy!
KIMONO KEN’S CHICKEN CHEESE ROLL. One of the must-try in their menu.
The last few are the common favorites in fastfoods that greatly influenced our palate…
KENTUCKY FRIED CHICKEN’S CHICKEN STRIPS =goodness.
MCDONALD’S CHICKEN MCDO = love.
JOLLIBEE’S CHICKEN JOY =happiness.
What’s your favorite fastfood fried chicken?
Honestly, I equally like them. :D
But our son Gabby makes his own choice…
This post lacks our other favorites - Max’s fried chicken (which I don’t have a photo yet to upload) Superbowl of China’s Crispy Lemon Chicken, and the chicken yummies that we still have to taste : the new Jollibee Chicken barbecue and some Oriental restaurant’s Hainanese Chicken.
Life is short to savor all of those chicken dishes!
