I got my first taste of Chicken Charlie a few nights ago when Hub brought home some takeout for dinner.
The package had a warning at the bottom that said: “The chicken you are about to experience is highly addictive.”
I’ve read mixed reviews about Chicken Charlie. Some raved; others were bleh about it.
So I wondered if the warning was exaggerated.
Hub brought home chicken legs – half were regular, the other half spicy. I looooooved the spicy legs. The meat was juicy and flavorful. The skin – the best part in fried chicken for me – was crispy and tasty, but had no or minimal breading.
The package also enumerates a host of good stuff about Chicken Charlie such as:
- zero transfats (I highly doubt this because chicken skin is transfat lurv!);
- freshly cooked (true, because waiting time is at least 15 minutes);
- perfectly non-greasy (well, compared to other fastfood chicken, yes, though there is still some degree of greasiness because it’s fried, after all);
- extraordinary taste (true, true!);
- extra crunchy (true, true, true!).
As to its claim of addictiveness… Chicken Charlie has been my craving for the past few days. So yes, it’s true!
