Extra crispy. Yes it is just extra flavours but that's what makes it delicious. I don't mind original chicken but it quickly bores me.

yea original chicken are great, if you take the skin off and just eat the meat it is juicy and full of favor, nothing wrong with extra crispy beside that fact that is has too much flour on it

yep. the only thing that differs between the two is the amount of flour/cornstarch contained. and yep. you're right. original chicken recipes are juicier than extra crispy chickens.

I have high uric acid and i have gout like every other day. Chicken is one of the foods I can eat yet. Meats are out. Chicken has lesser purines. I take mine any which way but the crispier and chilier, the better. I'll take it original but its too salty for my taste.

i enjoy the extra crispy 'coz it adds up the flavor in the meat then best eaten with lots of gravy ! . . . crispy chicken with rice & steam brocolli & carrots with melted cheese is so great with a bowl of mashed potato too .

When I go in I prefer the original. But end up getting both because they don't have enough of the original. So I just substitute.

I prefer spicy chicken where chicken is flavoured with many spices besides flour before cooked. Why? Because when I eat inside spicy chicken, it's flavour has mixed adds chicken original taste so that spared from putrid of chicken, sometime I find i fried chicken.

you can always add hot sauce with them. it depend on how much you like, i think a little bit is fine other wise you lose the orgrinal taste of it

I like original chicken. I do not care for the extra flour. If they want more flavor they can add a dash of hot sauce on the chicken piece itself. extra crispy is just that...crunchy chicken. I like mine a little bit softer. Not as crunchy as the crispy kind. To me all you really get with the crispier chicken is more crumbs.

I like extra crispy chicken. I do not mind the extra flour and fat. Haha! I just want my chicken to look bigger. Extra flour means extra bite for me. :)

i think if you want more chicken you would have to buy the whole chicken, that way you get extra fat and extar flour, and it is alot bigger too. lol :)

If I buy the chicken in the takeaway, I like to have crispy chiken in spicey breadcrumbs with chips. When I cook it myself I like to cook it plain and have it with roast potatoes and vegetables. I either add gravy or HP sauce.

Hmm like you I dont like extra crispy too. I like it's original flavour. When chicken pices are tender and juicy that bring the best test for me. You are right, extra crispy means extra flours.

extra flours mean extra fat, because it deep fry longer in the oil plus the oild doesnt run off because the flour hold it in place.
