      I have hesitated to offer that up, but you have, so I will second it. Though not a Popeye's fan, myself, ,my late M-I-L just flat loved their spicy fried chicken.

        Particularly good when get it just pulled from the fryer. My ideal woulde Wllie Mae's with Popeyes' spice.

          Probably a good idea. Took me a bit to understand how the thread got branched, but still the best way to go.
