A few weeks ago I was asked to teach a “simple summer entertaining” cooking class to some ladies from Marvin Methodist Church in Tyler, Texas. We met one evening out at one of the church member’s lake houses. The setting was beautiful, and it was so much fun to cook, eat and talk with women of all ages.
Some of the ladies and I got to talking about fried chicken, which is not that unusual when it comes to potluck conversation in the South! One thing I noticed was that many of the older ladies talked about how their mothers and grandmothers would fry the Sunday dinner chicken early that morning, cover it with a sheet or paper towel, leave it on the counter, and go to church.
But most of the women no longer fry their own chicken, especially the younger ones and the ladies cooking for only one or two people. The women mostly said, “We just pick it up at Brookshire’s!”
Brookshire’s fried chicken gets rave reviews from our customers all across our stores. We have worked hard to perfect our recipe and train our partners in the stores so that you can be certain you will get the same juicy, crispy chicken you’ve come to love – no matter which store you visit! And we keep it at a price point that definitely makes it worth not messing up your clean kitchen!
Family food traditions are important parts of our memories, but a good tradition doesn’t have to mean you’ve spent early Sunday morning in the kitchen! Just pick it up on your way home from church or work, put it on your own platter, and we’ll keep your secret!
