Do you have a strong craving for fried chicken that you simply must have it most days of the week? Then, you will likely find yourself as a regular customer at your neighborhood Church’s Chicken restaurant!
Think of Church’s Chicken fried chicken as a blank canvas, of a sort, because of its very light seasoning. You can pair it with just about anything that you fancy – rich ketchup, creamy mayonnaise, spicy sauce, or a combination of all three, if you want. You may also eat it on its own since the light seasoning doesn’t interfere with its meaty texture and succulent meat.
On the bone, the fried chicken is served in large portions and we’re not surprised as Church’s Chicken came from Texas, and we all know that everything’s bigger in the Lone Star State. It’s neither too dry nor too greasy, just the right balance between juiciness and oiliness considering that every piece has been deep fried. It has a crispy and crunchy skin that makes it a pleasure to hear the crunch as you bite into it.
As tenders, the chicken is served in bite-sized portions. These have a certain wow factor to them, especially when these are served hot. Dip them into the sauce and improve their flavor a hundredfold; we suggest the spicy sauce.
The bottom line: Church’s Chicken fried chicken is a great meal unto itself although we suggest pairing it with the biscuit.

The crinkle-cut fries are fried to perfection and served hot, while the baked mac ‘n cheese is as creamy as the one your grandmother probably made. The jalapeño peppers and jalapeño cheese bombs are worth your flaming mouth – spicy but satisfyingly so.
