We had one last night - it's the only takeaway that we ever seem to get. Our local one is good as it is in a densely populated student area where the turnover is very fast - so it's always freshly cooked. I have some left overs in the fridge for lunch :hungry:

I can remember my mother making Southern Fried Chicken once in the mid-60's. It was a huge event - she had got the recipe from an American newspaper and we had only ever had roast chicken as a celebratory treat before so frying was a new thing. We weren't overly impressed really and I have never made it from scratch. I avoid KFC - those urban myths of the 80's & 90's put me right off :lol:. The guys at work go there a lot - they do lovely chips.

I lived in a shared house where KFC was always referred to as Kentucky Fried Lizard. We still ate it though!

I've never eaten it and never fancied it. Probably due to a friend constantly eating it and the smell of grease putting me off. Deep frying anything here in my tiny pad would be unpleasant I would imagine. I think I'd rather dry rub chicken in spices and bake.

It's the only "fast food" I really have weakness for, that said it must be 2 years+ since I had one. I used to get the M&S version as treat but they've changed it and it's now really greasy so that's off the menu. I do make it sometimes but seldom now the boys are away as it is right faff for one.
If anyone's going could they get me an original 3-piece meal with an orange juice please? :lol:

Yes, KFC is the only takeway I like ... when I was having regular check ups at Hillingdon hospital, my treat to myself was a KFC for my lunch in Uxbridge on the way home. :tu: :chops: :hungry:

Mr. Z. won't go near the place, so I have never indulged. I do like Nandos and their salads are good too.

I used to eat it occasionally in my teens, (a KFC opened in Tottenham high road near Bruce Grove) but hadn't had any for years. Mrs B told me she had never tried it but would like to. A few years ago, a KFC tribute company opened up in town, much to the chagrin of the local message boards ("The health food shop's gone, now there's a fried chicken place and an Asda, what's Ware coming to?" sort of thing). Anyway, I got a takeaway there last autumn. Nice enough, the lads in the shop were nice enough too. We rarely have takeaways, so goodness knows when we'd get around to going back there.
