    Thomas, have you ever tried frenchys? It's close to UH, next to third ward. It's suppose to be amazing so I decided to try it, as soon as I walked in I knew I was outside of my element, I ate one piece of chicken and thew away the rest. The fries were okay. Many people seem to like it, I think its nasty, but I dont like fried food in general so that may have something to do with it.

    Has anyone else in Houston tried this place?


    hahaha

    The frist time I had chicken fried steak it was amazing, maybe I was really hungry, but I have tried it from other places and its not the same.

    I've eaten at Frenchy's. It's decent but if you don't like fried food that pretty much would spoil fried chicken for you.

    I don't know, there's something about making fried chicken myself that does not appeal to me at all. I just would never do it. Oddly enough, the only meal my mother could actually cook was fried chicken. Maybe that has something to do with it.

    well, there are two schools of fried chicken -- Presbyterian and baptist. presbyterians fry in a shallow cast-iron pan. baptists go for full immersion.

    I have made it less than 5x, and while I enjoyed the results, have always reflected on the effort afterwards (buttermilk soaked, double-dipped, shallow fry, clean up etc etc). I do mainly karaage now, which is simpler obviously, but not what we're talking about here.

    I've been to the location off of 59, I-45 and Kirby. Never been to the Frenchy's near UH. They have the best fried chicken (compared to Popeye's, KFC, Church's, and Hartz) but it's always so damn hot. I usually have to cut it open to let the steam out or else it would burn my mouth.

    I don't like the Ad Hoc recipe, especially the lemon. Leah Chase soaks her fried chicken in canned milk, which I tried and it was good. I eat fried chicken 4-7 times a month, I cook it differently depending on my mood and the sides. If I'm eating it with Jamaican rice and peas I marinate it over night in adobo and hot sauce(jerk seasoning is acceptable too). If I'm making it with your typical soul food sides, I marinate it in buttermilk over night and then season it with creole seasoning or lawrys seasoned salt or Soul seasoning or even old bay garlic seasoning for a few hours. I never deep fry, I always pan cook in cast iron.

    4-7 times a month is beast status.... i haven't gotten to eat real fried chicken 4-7 times in the past decade =( Too many powers that be vetoing my food choices, and lack of availability.

    What does soaking the chicken in buttermilk actually do to the chicken? is it just for tenderizing?

    The only fried chicken ive ever eaten was a Zinger burger so forgive my ignorance.

    Was going to take a good friend out tonight to celebrate her dissertation defense. Since she now lives in London, she declared that what she really wants to do to celebrate is to stay in, drink, and eat fried chicken. I guess this will be my dinner tonight:
