Hot Chicken, Chicago

Hot Chicken at Parson’s Chicken and Fish

It's been over 10 years since I last took a trip to Chicago and I basically wiped clean all of my expectations for the food in Chicago. Starting clean and fresh. I can tell you that, I did not have a bad meal there. Good ramen, great tiki drinks, awesome pies, and incredible fried chicken.

My first stop, after dropping my stuff off at my Airbnb, I went straight to Parson's. I sat at the bar and had their fried chicken sandwich ($10) and a $2 beer. The sandwich was delicious. Then on my last day, I went back to try the hot chicken. I would've like for them to offer different levels of heat instead of just one which was sort of medium. But I'm being picky. The pieces of chicken were flavorful, inside and out. It was pretty damn awesome.

$8 (2 pieces with white bread and pickles)
