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.
