What I Ate: July 26, 2009 (Church's Chicken)

Dinner: I pan-fried a Kona Kampachi fillet and served it with capellini tossed in extra virgin olive oil and topped with buttered grilled mushrooms and fresh gulf white shrimp. The greens are collard greens which I blanched for two minutes and then sauteed in olive oil with garlic and kosher salt.

Lunch: I had a craving for fried chicken, so I decided to try Church's (a fast food chain that I had not yet tried). I ordered the three piece spicy chicken combo while Tina got the two piece original. The regular or original flavor was a bit bland, but the spicy was okay. Overall, I prefer Popeye's spicy crispy fried chicken over Church's and doubt I'll go back. For fast food fried chicken, I currently prefer KFC (unless I'm looking for spiciness and crunch).

  • Where'd you get the kampachi from?

    Does KFC have a chipotle extra crispy chicken there?

  • I bought the Kona Kampachi from Central Market. I think they said it came from a company called Kona Blue that sustainably farms the fish in open water facilities. I haven't done my own research.

    I haven't actually been to a KFC since I've moved out here. I'll have to look for it in the future.

  • Church's is often the target of African-American urban legends — as with all urban legends, highly amusing.
