BEST FRIED CHICKEN( Courtesy / January 10, 2012 )
Many a weeknight dinner has been saved by the yellow box of fried chicken picked up near the Publix deli counter. It's double-hand-breaded before it hits the fryer, not emerging until perfectly golden brown. It contains way too much fat and way too much salt, but every so often, it's the perfect answer to the question "What's for dinner?"
Kids love the breaded tenders. Don't forget the coleslaw, potato salad and beans over in the refrigerated case. Sure, Publix sells rotisserie chicken, but sometimes, there's no substitute for fried.
