Marsh fried chicken

Another quick one (sorry life is pretty busy these days!). So you know I have this thing for fried chicken right? Well recently I heard from a couple different sources that Marsh Supermarkets had changed their fried chicken recipe and that it was good. Of course I was instantly intrigued. I’m not generally a grocery store fried chicken connoisseur, but I was certainly excited to try it.

And you know what? It was really good. Even though it had clearly been cooked earlier, it still remained amazingly crispy on the outside—that breading is big and has a great crunch factor. The meat inside (I ate all thighs, love that you can choose exactly the pieces you want) was super tender as well, which again was a little surprising since it had been sitting for a bit. If I were going to change anything about it, I might add a little more spice, but I’m kind of a spicy fried chicken girl. Other than that, the execution was pretty spot on.

My family has become a bit snobby about fried chicken, but everyone was onboard with this one. And I am going to figure out how to get it freshly cooked and I bet it will be a total knockout. I’m assuming if I am willing to wait, I can make this happen. I am going to find out.

Let me know if you have tried it (or if you do based on this). Would love to hear about it.

    Good to know! I'm also anxiously awaiting Joella's Hot Chicken to open at the site of the former 96th Street Burgers.

  2. I know it's not super local to you, but the Safeway at 56th and Illinois has incredible fried chicken... and perfect for a crowd at $1/piece for a 50-piece tray!

  3. Around here (California) Safeway often does a "$5 Friday" special on their fried chicken -- $5 for 8 pieces of dark meat ($6 for mixed white and dark). I love it!

  4. Thanks for the info. Just went by our local Marsh and tried the Fried Chicken. I agree it is pretty good. I remembered your idea of getting it when it is fresh so went about 11. It is nice to know of place to get some fried chicken whe we are craving it. Will try Safeway soon. Thanks
