Comment on Extra-Crispy Spicy Fried Chicken with “Delta” Sauce by Pat.

Looked all through Missouri today and finally found an open Popeye’s in Springfield. Apparently a lot of them have closed and this one had just reopened under the name Popeye’s Louisiana Kitchen. It was the same chicken I remembered from a trip to Florida and heavenly! They marinade their chicken in cajun spices they said, and it looked like hot sauce too as the chicken under the crust had red places. Think I would try that maybe added to the buttermilk?
