I've only had Popeye's chicken about 5 times. We had a Popeye's but it closed after about 7 months and now it's a Mexican restaurant. That said, this COPYCAT recipe always looked good to me, and after we were talking about the 340° oil temp I see that this food blogger uses the same...my goal for years has been to copy "Popeyes spicy fried chicken "
the recipe that i am using now is as close as i have ever come to replicating it , by using the annatto oil and beef tallow it might be as close as anyone can get to it.
go back and read the start of this thread for full instructions
