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

We had a popeye’s in Wilson at one time, but they weren’t here long. The chicken was great. They had too many other competitors like Bill’s barbacue, Parker’s barbacue, and others. We had family resturants which sold very good fried chicken. I have to agree with Big Perm that, I also hooked on Church’s chicken. They have very good chicken. Each visit I make to Raleigh , I go by Churche’s. I appreciate this recipe. I intend to try it tomorrow.
