I think I have confessed elsewhere that I have a slight addiction to the Flautas stand at the Baldwin Hills Mall. I love their Flautas. I ADORE their Topo Chips and am addicted to their Agua Frescas. A few weeks ago, I stopped by just to pick up an Agua Fresca and noticed that right next door, a new Chicken place opened up. It’s kinda hard to miss actually, big sign, folksy sign. KRISPY KRUNCH CHICKEN!
Plus, it had a case right up in front showing off the chicken to temp you.
Still, it was mall food court chicken! I grabbed my Pineapple and Cucumber Agua Fresca and left.
Later when I got home, I mentioned the new addition to P. who nearly jumped out his chair. Supposedly this is supposed to be EXCELLENT chicken and he demanded we get some on our upcoming Hollywood bowl trip. So I complied and it was GOOD. Despite being transported for quite a bit, the chicken was wonderfully crunchy. The coating was a touch salty, but great flavor and the chicken was juicy and well seasoned even without the coating (I hate fried chicken that is bland on the inside!). The tiny honey biscut that comes with each ‘meal’ was also REALLY good.
So a couple of days later, I noticed another outpost of this great chicken, at Wings and Greens right next to Orleans and York’s original location on Slauson! I was feeling like a salad anyway was thrilled to have it topped with the fried chicken. I also got an order of their chicken tenders all on their own.
Sadly, although I like the salad option, the Chicken at this location was not nearly as good as the one in the mall. It was not so crispy as this location doesn’t seem to have the same turn around that the mall location does. Which is where we will be going from now one when we get the hankering!
