Whenever I write about food, readers seem to really enjoy checking out what it's about. It's like food is an important part of our lives, right? Okay, enough of the joking around, but I will admit, when I see an article about the best places for any certain type of food or a great restaurant to check out, I'm definitely interested.

Lately, I've noticed how much buzz there is about fried chicken. The competition is fierce. Many fast-food restaurants boast that they have the best-fried chicken or fried chicken sandwiches. How many times have we heard lately about the desire to have Chik-fil-A come to the Binghamton area?

I take my favorite type of fried chicken seriously. I prefer it to be very crispy. And the sauce needs to be just right. Some places have a great-tasting sauce, while others do not. I'm guessing most people prefer pickles in the fried chicken sandwiches. I'd rather not have pickles on my sandwich. You may think I'm off on that, but I don't like the taste of pickles added.
