It's just so crispy, so moist. How can anyone dislike this fried chicken? So I thought last Friday Night after making an 11:00 stop at KFC.
Yes, that's right, KFC, the restaurant that has stores in more than 109 countries, and that is one of the world's most recognizable restaurants. Yet the American icon is also a corporation that's been known for inhumane treatment of its chickens, and has, for the most part, refused to change its ways.
Im almost embarassed to admit how much I enjoyed the succulent, crispy-crunchy thigh that I crammed down my throat on Friday Night, but Anthony Bourdain has a point when he says that chefs are in the pleasure business, and as long as the food tastes good, it doesn't matter if your chicken came from the black market in Djabouti (he didn't exactly say that part) as long as it tastes good.
I can't say necessarily I agree with that, but there are a lot of people who do, and if it's 11:00 on a Friday Night and you're craving some fourthmeal and you can put the ethical issues on the back burner for a few minutes, what's wrong with a crispy thigh with those 11 signature herbs and spices every once in a while?
