The real original name of Texas Chicken is actually Church’s Chicken, named after the founder George W Church. When it started way back in 1952, it was called Church’s Fried Chicken to Go. I guess the word Texas in countries outside the USA would have greater impact in terms of marketing. Just the word Texas makes me think the chicken must be yummier and more succulent than Singapore chicken. More googling revealed that “Texas Chicken” is the name of “Church’s Chicken” in the Middle East, “church” being possibly objectionable.
Whatever the name, I absolutely love their honey butter biscuits – so good! Their chicken is super yummilicious too. That’s the best word I can think of to rave about it. The breast meat is tender, moist and bursting with flavour. I am drooling just thinking about it.
This was something else I didn’t know about the fried chicken chain. It merged with Popeyes in 1989, till it became independant again in 2004.
