Your opinion on Fried Chicken....?
Good question: Over the years, I've made thousands of pieces of fried chicken, and the hands down favorite is something called PANKO, a type of Japanese breadcrumb, that is available in the international section of large supermarkets, or in Asian grocery stores......use them to bread the chicken as you would the cornflakes, but when they're half done frying (on both sides) THEN finish them off in a 350F oven till they're done.........I've found this to be the best way, both with bone-in and boneless breasts......Enjoy!!!

Which came first in YOUR opinion, The Chicken or The Egg??
The chicken. D= Reason: Eggs need a chicken to sit on them to keep them warm and lay them and do all that lovely stuff, and if there weren't chickens then how did the egg hatch into a chicken? Or I could say it's the egg... Reason: The egg appeared, God realized that it wouldn't work, so he put the chicken on Earth instead of the egg. I think it's the chicken though. =D Wow, I put WAY too much thought into that. Haha.
It is a great comfort food
That’s an interesting question.In the U.S. we generally have a very unsanitary, not to mention inhumane method of farming chickens for their eggs and meat. People are becoming more conscious of this and free range, organic chicken is now widely available.I personally, as this is an opinion question, find chicken bland. I have only once ordered chicken while dining out and that was because I wanted to try one of the restaurant’s famous sauces (this was Arnaud’s in New Orleans) which was only available on chicken. The blandness of the chicken was a good vehicle for it.That is not to say that I haven’t eaten take-out fried chicken, which I enjoyed occasionally back when. I did like Popeye’s. Now I’m hesitant about it.Getting back to the methods with which chicken is raised (at least, in the U.S) I find it disgusting.This leaves me caught in a paradox. I am on a budget and cook all our meals at home. I do not like chicken enough to pay huge prices for it. My local grocery has a brand of meats, including chicken, called ‘Green-wise’, a brand name of theirs. I do not trust it 100%. I buy it when it’s on sale and freeze it. When I butcher it and cook it, I sanitize everything in site like I’m performing surgery, before and after.My partner only likes fried chicken. More specifically, he also feels that chicken is bland and became sick of roast and baked chicken when he was growing up. He also doesn’t care for fried chicken bone-in for some reason.We both prefer dark meat.My solution is to buy bone-in thighs. I defrost them just a little bit and bone them, 4 or 5 cuts per thigh, skin on, to make nice pieces. I batter and fry the chunks and serve with a vast variety of sauces. Much easier to bone while slightly frozen. Tomorrow I’m going to serve it with tzaziki.Once again, the chicken becomes a vehicle for sauce. If there was no low-priced, hopefully ethically raised, chicken for sale I doubt I would ever buy any.
What's your opinion on Popeyes chicken?
Not particularly fond. Prefer Churchs. We don't eat either often. But Churchs in LA has a better taste.
What is your opinion on eating eggs from your own chickens?
Hi there, good question. From a strictly ethical perspective, I wouldn't find the consumption of eggs under the scenario you describe to be a flagrant (or even a minor) ethical violation. Assuming that the chickens are indeed free and "happy," so to speak, I don't believe you'd be causing them any distress if you used their unfertilized eggs for whatever purpose you choose to. However, this leeway becomes a lot more problematic when we contextualize this act in the framework of what the rest of the world does. By eating those eggs, you send the message that: 1. Eating eggs is an enjoyable activity. 2. You have given yourself the permission to do so by virtue of what you deem to be good conditions for the chickens. This is a horrible slippery slope for us to be on. If we eat eggs ourselves, what platform would we have to tell others that it's NOT OK for THEM to eat eggs. Not everyone has access to yards or space where their chickens may run free, not everyone may be economically capable of keeping their own chickens etc. So what should they do? Why don't they also have the right to enjoy eggs? Is it really their fault that they are unable to raise and take care of their own chickens? Since the answer is no, it is not their fault, it follows that we must allow them to enjoy foods which we enjoy ourselves. Similar logic may apply to what one considers to be "optimum" conditions for the chickens. I would refrain from eating eggs simply for the reason that doing so would provide leeway for others to do the same. In a near perfect world, perhaps we could ease up on it. But the world we live in is far from perfect. Let's not indulge in food sources we do not need, food sources which are avenues to future hell-holes for feeding greater masses of people. Animal factories of today are products of our reliance on animals. Once upon a time, our relationship with animals may have been symbiotic and kind, but today it is perverted beyond degree. Once upon a time, we kept chickens in our back yards, and today we breed and raise them in cages. The answer isn't to go back to the original scenario which led to animal factories in the first place, but to dismantle the status quo and challenge our use of animals and their products to begin with.

I need your opinion on kfc grilled chicken?
its DELICIOUSSSS seriously, i thouqht it would suck but its totally bomb
You cannot go wrong with a thigh piece. Period. It is a big, juicy, tender, almost boneless piece that is just absolutely irresistible. Second i’d say would be a leg or breast piece - leg becasue of the practicality (The bone is just a perfect chichen handle) and breast because I dont like chicken ribs. I Love the potato and gravy and I think the coleslaw is pretty good. I personally don’t order the coleslaw because I don’t go to fast food places to order a salad. Still tastes nice though.
Once upon a time, I made - or at least cooked - a turducken.(For those who’ve never heard of this hybrid beast, a “turducken” is a chicken - with filling - boned, coated with more filling, and stuffed inside a boned duck, which is coated with yet more filling and stuffed inside a boned turkey. Turkey-duck-chicken.)My father-in-law, who lived near us, really wanted to try one, but his health had become so poor he couldn’t possibly deal with such a big project himself. He suggested that he could order a turducken, have it delivered to our house, and I could cook it for Thanksgiving (he’d been having Thanksgiving with us ever since his wife died). So that’s what we did.Thawing the critter (which was delivered frozen) and roasting it wasn’t much work - thawing just called for letting it sit in the refrigerator for several days, and the cooking was like cooking any roast bird - just much more time-consuming. The only real challenge was lifting it all out of the roasting pan onto a meat plate; it was heavy and so thoroughly cooked it wanted to fall apart. Even my husband and our adult son, working together, had some trouble getting it transferred.Was it a gourmet delight? Well, no. The chicken still had its skin, which was soggy and flabby. The turkey had dried out during the hours it took to make sure the chicken was safely cooked through. And how was the duck? Well, we were pretty sure that’s what the several chunks of very dark meat buried in the stuffing just outside the chicken must have been, but there certainly wasn’t a whole duck anywhere to be found.It was a curiosity, like four and twenty blackbirds baked in a pie, possibly worth having once just for the experience. Maybe.
