- I’ve tried a lot of fast-food items in my day, from burgers at McDonald’s and Burger King to every burrito at Taco Bell.
- However, I’ve somehow never tried Popeyes’ famous fried chicken.
- I ordered a four-piece chicken combo and thought it was perfectly juicy and crispy.

Whenever I’ve ordered Popeyes in the past, I’ve opted for either the much-beloved chicken sandwich, the chain’s chicken tenders, or even the popcorn shrimp. Somehow, the chain’s fried chicken has never called my name — until now.
I decided to try out Popeyes’ fried chicken to see if it would become my new go-to order and whether it measured up to other items I’ve ordered from the chain in the past.
I thought this was an exceptional deal, especially considering a five-piece chicken tenders meal costs $US14.99 ($AU20). I felt I got way more meat with the fried chicken than I ever did when I ordered chicken tenders.
Although the chicken sandwich will always have a place in my heart, I liked the fried chicken better. I also thought it beat the chicken tenders in terms of bang for your buck.
It might have been my first time eating Popeyes’ fried chicken, but it definitely won’t be my last.
