Copycat Popeye’s Spicy Fried Chicken



“Popeye’s Mighty Good Fried Chicken was first opened in a suburb of New Orléans in St. Bernard Parish, on June 12, 1972, as “Chicken on the Run”, owned and operated by Mr. Copeland to compete against another well-known restaurant. In the beginning,  Al Copeland sold a more classic-style mild Southern fried chicken, however, business was a little on the slow side, and he realized he would have to sell a much spicier more kicked up version if they planned to impress the spice loving locals.”

What’s not to love about Popeye’s Spicy Chicken? Honestly, I am probably one of the biggest Popeyes Spicy Chickens fans out there to date. I adore the taste of that spicy, perfectly seasoned, crispy on the outside, juicy on the inside chicken so much that I had to do a copycat recipe for Popeyes Spicy Chicken to share with y’all today. Trust me if you enjoy Popeyes Spicy Chicken you are going to fall in love with this recipe.


My real name is Debra (Debbie Sue). Sarah is a nickname given to me in high school. My husband has always called me that so here in Florida It's all I am known by. I was born and raised in Illinois. My son and I moved to Colorado in 1982. I taught school for 17 years. Then I ran a homeschooling/preschool/daycare until 2006 when I moved to Florida after my son, Bobby died suddenly. He was almost 26. Danny and I live and work at a state park here. I miss the mountains and climate of Colorado. I miss snow and the four seasons. I miss Bobby.
