Sometimes I’ll do fried food Fridays and this particular Friday, a couple of weeks ago, I tried the chicken fingers at the Thomson Reuters C Cafeteria in Eagan. They tasted amazing but definitely didn’t make me feel great – I gotta remember that eating fried food and then sitting at your desk for another 4-5 … Continue reading TR Chicken
A couple of weeks ago I went to a work happy hour at New Bohemia in Eagan and decided to try their buffalo chicken cracklers (I think that’s what they were called, looks like they don’t feature them on their website menu). This was one of the most disappointing decisions of my life and I … Continue reading A sad day for chicken
I went to the Lexington with Tammy last week and had these awesome Fried Chicken Sliders that went perfectly with my Minnesota Collins and finished off with a Tropical Creme Brulee. The chicken was perfectly breaded and almost tasted like it had a small squeeze of lemon on top that rocked my world. Would definitely … Continue reading Fancy Fried Chicken Sliders
My pal Morgan and I had lunch at Revival for my belated 28th birthday. It is inappropriate how long it took me to get to Revival since I have a blog about eating chicken. It was incredible, we split everything so we wouldn’t get so full we couldn’t enjoy it. Ordered the pork belly appetizer, … Continue reading Revival Birthday
Click in to post to get full effect from steaming hot wings at Sweeneys last Saturday.
After a night of salsa dancing with a couple of girlfriends, we took an uber to the Uptown Diner. Of course had to order the chicken fingers, but I don’t know if it was too many vodka sodas or the shitty ranch dressing but these were a tummy upsetter. Would not recommend.
Couple of Saturdays ago did my first animal transport for Ruff Start Rescue, couple of hours later and full of emotions and a long ride home I was in a pinch and got the Chicken Fries from Burger King. And although I ate them in like two seconds flat because I was totally starving, they … Continue reading Emergency chicken

Paired with a Blue Moon and taking a good 2 hours to eat, it was a great … Continue reading D-Spot

Checked out Dumpling last Sunday and tried a couple of their different dumplings, fried chicken bao and also some amazing dessert dumplings because that’s totally a thing. You can find them in South Minneapolis, super cute place! I’d give it: ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ DUMPLING
Just got back from a solo-trip to Iceland and on my very awesome Game of Thrones tour stopped in Arnes for some Icelandic Chicken Nuggets from a very small mini-mart. It was a perfect cherry on top to an incredible trip!
Recently, at a family event, had a family member ask me about my upcoming wedding that I very awkwardly had to explain that the engagement had ended, was then in somewhat of disapproving tone asked about the picture of me on Facebook eating a giant taco. People are weird. This is the “Machete” from Taco … Continue reading machete side note

Went to dinner with some fellow 3Mers at The Strip Club in St. Paul. Got a lot of grief for wanting to just order the Fried Chicken Sandwich so came to a compromise with the table to order it as an appetizer, even that small bite was absolutely to die for. Will definitely be back … Continue reading Strip Club Chicken
Scored some free Popeyes chicken today at work, yum! May have been four days old, but totally worth it.

Sorry for delay in posting I’ve been on a “diet” for most of the summer, but ditched it for July 7th National Macaroni Day. Eli’s in downtown Minneapolis has the best Penne and Cheese that’s made even better with Chicken added in and a glass of Brut.
Nothing short of awesome having a cook for a boyfriend, especially when he makes special chicken dishes for you when you visit him at work. Even better when it involves mashed potatoes!
Dangers of having a chicken blog: everyone will try to capture you eating chicken – super flattering.
