Hot Dogs vs. Fried Chicken

Perilagu Khan | Oct 4, 201006:59 AM     127

I don't to refight the Civil War, but let us pit two American favs against one another here: crisp, juicy fried chicken versus a savory dawg with all the right toppings and condiments.

I'm going to plump for dawgs simply because I find that they are more consistently good than fried chicken. One can go almost anywhere and butt up against a pretty mean hot dawg, but you really never know what you're going to get when buying (or even making) fried yardbird unless you go to a Popeye's or a Colonel Sanders'.

How do I like 'em? Broiled beef dawgs on a steamed bun with spicy mustard, minced hot yellow peppers and a sprinkle of celery salt. For fried chicken, I like the breast with a crispy, spicy crust. Honestly, Popeye's is a pretty good prototype.
