Comment on Extra-Crispy Spicy Fried Chicken with “Delta” Sauce by JKG.

Had a chuckle over your recollection of the NH Popeye’s — spot on to my memory as well. Reminded me of a KFC in DC near where I lived one summer that had a bullet-proof plexiglass lazy susan in lieu of a counter. My gf and I were walking by one night and saw two men near the open trunk of a car.

GF: (Brightly) Hey! That man has a gun!
Me: I know. Stop staring. Keep walking.

*Very* similar to my own great-grandmother’s recipe. I make out 2 differences: thyme and oregano instead of rosemary, and rather than the oven I dump them into a pot of sauce (hopefully homemade) to simmer until the rest of the meal is ready.
