MiamiDon:

Some people call it the "pulley bone" (or "pully bone").  You cut a whole, bone-in chicken breast into two pieces cross-wise rather than splitting it lengthwise (as almost all restaurants do nowadays, and the way poultry distributors, at least in this part of the world, invariably cut it when raw chicken is sold "cut up.")

This link explains how to cut it up that way (scroll down to "How to cut up chicken with a pulley bone"):


This is the way my mother, who grew up in Southern Illinois, cut up a whole chicken.  Hollyhock Hill is the only place I've found it.

That is one way to remove the pully bone. I prefer to leave the ribs attached and cut down into the breast just past the point of the wishbone. With a good sharp knife you will feel the keel bone. When you feel it turn the knife and cut horizontally along the keel and ribs and you will have 3 nice pieces . One pulley bone and 2 side breasts which still contain the tenders. Those ribs hold so much flavor and extra coating.

I looked through part, not all, of this thread, but with that disclosure I am shocked that (I saw) no mention was made of Prince's Hot Chicken Shack in Nashville.  Now that is really good fried chicken.  Better than Bon Ton IMO.

New Best fried for me:  Rick's Chophouse in McKinney, TX.  Marinated in buttermilk, lightly breaded, and pan fried in lard.  Just the way grandma used to do it before her unfortunate CVA.  And a totally unexpected item on a chophouse menu.  Insanely good.

Actually ... back in the day it was spectacular.  I recall a road trip with my grandparents that took us through pre-interstate Kentucy in 1959.  We stopped at a full-service restaurant that featured "Col. Sanders' Famous Recipe Frid Chicken"; I had a 1/2 chicken dinner that was 10X wonderful.  Even the mashed potatos and gravy were fantastic; I ordered seconds.  Aside from the food I remember that we Pittsburghers had trouble understanding the Southern drawl of the waitress.
 
A decade later I encountered Col. Sanders at the University Cafeteria in Charlottesville and told him about that dinner.  He laughed and said "Those days are gone.  The only thing I recognize these days is the cole slaw. I'm glad you had a chance to enjoy my cookin' ".
