Chicken for a hungry soul

For a change, I'm posting everybody's favorite bird---chicken. If you noticed, a chicken dish is rarely featured in my Friday post. I am not very fond of chicken, or I should say, I'm tired of chicken---especially the fried and breaded kind. I admit I have my fair share of fried chicken. It's the first thing that comes to mind when I'm working late and needed a quick fix. Just dial **** or take the elevator and walk across the street, there is a row of fast-food chains serving fried chicken.

When it's past 8 in the evening and everyone was still slaving on their computers, then our hungry eyes would meet over the monitors and we would read each others' minds. Somebody would call delivery and I am always left with a choice between McDo and Jollibee because KFC takes 48 years to deliver, and Kenny Rogers is perpetually late "through the years." Sometimes I would suggest Wendy's or Max's, but I'm always out-voted.

Back to my grilled chicken [from Texas Roadhouse Grill], I know it looks like something Hannibal Lecter would love to serve. But yes, it was really grilled, although I don't remember slathering it with ketchup. I was probably too hungry to care. And here's my favorite chicken, Max's spring chicken (clucking :P) in its headless glory.

i love chicken! back home,I always love the Max's fried, I hate chicken from fast food especially those big with breadings, and if it's in the middle of the night naman, we always go for Andoks or any brand,basta lechon manok!

You never really fail to make us hungry. Tasty, tasty treat.

Oh, I love Max's spring chicken, too! =P~ But there was a time that when we go to Max's, and order it, they don't have it. You're right! Fried chicken has become a common dish, that it somehow lost its luster. hehehe

Fried chicken here in America has no taste, IMHO. But lately KFC has started to server grilled chicken, which is very good and moist and flavorful, which my hubs and I both like.

You know we could always always use another new chicken recipe, right?

i dont mind chicken if there r utensil but places like Kentucky fried chicken expect us to get our hands greasy by not supplying utensils. :)
