FRIED CHICKEN WEEK!
Today, Chesty Morgan and I headed to South Central LA to try two of their most famous fried chicken joints.
While we both were a little nervous to make the drive here, we thanked our lucky stars that the chicken made it all worth it.
Jim Dandy serves the quintessential fried chicken. Nothing fancy, nothing gimmicky, just basic fried chicken juicy, flavorful and very crispy.
I was shocked at how juicy my chicken breast was.
You’ll be ordering through bulletproof windows (unnerving at first) and then eating in your car as there is no dining room,Â so don’t be alarmed. It’s worth it (don’t make me say it a 3rd time!)
Chicken bits and crumbs will spill all over your car seats and you’ll have forgotten to get enough napkins but you’ll not want to go back in to get more.
JD’s also makes an excellent banana pudding dessert and the corn fritters dusted with powdered sugar are a unique must try.
The only sour part of the experience was my brief humilation as we walked through the front door and a group of youths in a car muttered under their breath “You guys lost?”
Needless to say, it took us less than 10 minutes to scarf everything down and drive off to our next chicken spot.
