Does anybody remember how Church's Chicken use to taste in the 70's and 80's? You cannot compare Church's Chicken then and now. It use to be so tasty, now it is a greasy inedible mass. Church's Chicken use to have a very thin batter coating that was a light brown golden color and it was flaky. The chicken itself was very, very tasty and was flavorful, but that golden batter was so good it was almost impossible not to want to use you fingers to grab and eat every crumb that fell off after all the chicken was eaten.
I wish I could figure out that recipe, I tried to Google the term 70's fried chicken or 70's Church's Chicken and many more similar terms but I just get recipes for the terrible chicken Church's makes today.
The Church's Chicken back in the 70's and 80's in my humble opinion beat any chicken in the past and the present that I have ever been served. Sometimes I wish I could just do some time travel, get hired at a Church's Chicken back in the 70's and see if I could snag the recipe. If nothing else I could enjoy that great chicken once again.
To no avail, I tried to contact the parent company, San Francisco based private equity firm Friedman, Fleischer & Lowe LLC (FFL) but they would not email me back. I asked them to please bring that great chicken taste back again, or at least give me the recipe so that I could try and make it myself. I was surprised to not receive any answer back at all even just an acknowledgement that my email suggestion was appreciated.
America's Favorite Chicken Company or AFC Enterprises Inc. should buy Church's Chicken back, move it back to Austin, TX where it began and make Church's Chicken the way it was in the 70's and 80's when it was the best and tastiest chicken.
