My brother had been going on and on about this chicken. I don't eat at Popeye's, but finally found a recipe on the net, and boy, was he right about this chicken! It's delicious, although with all those mixes and the frying it can't be too healthy for you. The dipping takes a little work, but I think it's worth it!
