Popeye's Chicken Complaint - Another Reason Why I Never Eat The Chicken When Dining Out
DENVER, COLORADO -- Being the self proclaimed Emeril, of my kitchen AND M3C, I must say that the three chicken joint chains out here are just awful. KFC, has gotten worse as the years go by just as their shopmate Taco Bell has.
Church's Chicken is good when it's fresh out of the grease but if it has been sitting watch out! If I wanted my chicken swimming in grease, I'd have my MOM cook it (forgive me Mother) and don't reheat it in the microwave or you will be tossing out your meal.
As for my last and final visit to Popeye's (at least for the chicken) the service was prompt and friendly but the two 'spicy' pieces were overcooked to me to the point of being hard and flavorless with just a hint of Cayenne. That's unacceptable for my discriminating palette.
At the time I was too tired to thaw out some bird and fry it up so I scarfed it down with the side of Mac and Cheese. I realize that this is just a chicken joint but how hard is it to make M&C that is so runny that you could practically drink it? I think most of us here are well aware of the horrors and humiliation that runny food can cause?
It is so frustrating for me to get a decent chicken meal anymore. If it's not bloody raw on the inside, it's cooked until when you bite into the outer crust the inside of your mouth gets shredded!
