Fried Chicken, Portland

I am looking for the best fried chicken in Portland.

  1. I haven't had it but I understand K&Z's has, and/or will be adding it to their menu. Country Cat is supposed to be good. I've had the fried chicken at Screen Door and didn't care for it, but I love breakfast there. Some people like the chicken at Bernie's, although it's a boneless breast, which to me is not the real McCoy. Doris' off MLK (RIP) was also pretty good, and in a pinch there is always Popeye's. (just kidding). MY favorite fried chicken of all time in Portland was a place called Nendels on Canyon Road. Nobody but long-time PDXers would remember it, but it was something to behold. So..hmm. K&Z or Country Cat would be my suggestions.

    1. re: Kim D

      Kenny & Zuke's serves fried chicken on Wednesday nights only. Country Cat's fried chicken is very good.

    2. For breakfast or brunch on Sunday, Simpatica does a great fried chicken and waffles.
