I really do not fancy chicken, it’s stale and sometimes you can do only so little with it, barbecue it, roast it, or put it in a stew.
Regardless of all your efforts and love, there still will be that moment where you are going to bite a mouthful of chicken meat and feel as if you are going to choke when you swallow it.
That’s why I wasn’t all that excited when my wife, Johanes, told me about 24 chicken. I didn’t look it up expecting it to be just your everyday fried chicken tossed around with different varying sauces, it turns out I was half right.
Searching for the restaurant, we found ourselves in a crowd which turned out to be a queue for this humble yet obviously busy shop. The orders were coming in as quickly as they could complete them.
The waves of hungry and busy students kept coming and as soon as we were nearing the shop my nose felt a wonderful and alluring scent. At that moment I knew that this was going to be a whole lot different from the chicken shops I was used to. The nearer we got to the cashier the more my mouth watered.
We placed our order and within minutes 2 boxes of chicken savory goodness were placed in our table.
I dove right in. The chicken was tender, juicy and tasted out of this world. I could eat a lot but never in my dreams would I eat a whole chicken’s worth without batting an eye and it was very comforting until I noticed something halfway through the box.
The chicken had no bones! All meat and skin carefully fried and tossed in amazingly unique sauces. My mind was blown.
You see, when you cook chicken the most tender and juicy parts are always wrapped in bones. Compare the difference between the chicken breasts and the chicken thighs. The thighs are juicy regardless of how wrong you can cook it, while the breasts are mostly dry almost all the time, even when you add it in a stew.
I was enjoying every hot juicy bite without me noticing and that in it of itself stands as a testament to how good the chickens really are.
I was truly amazed by how well they thought ahead. The portions were small bite-sized chickens that can cook fairly quickly and would have more surface areas where the sauce can coat giving you a more flavorful bite every single time.
That’s why they can complete that many orders of chicken in record time without the staff really breaking a sweat.
A regular chicken leg with the thigh might take somewhere about 20-30 minutes to fully cook through since the bones take a considerable amount of time to heat up and cook the blood within the bones too.
Taking out the bones from the equation as well as cutting the pieces of chicken meat up to a more manageable portion gives you piping hot amazingly cooked tender chicken within 5 minutes.
I was honestly blown away by how well they manage the chicken. I never really thought about it that much but now that I had to think about it, It’s genius. I love the chickens there and my mouth waters every single time I think about the Jack Daniels chicken.
Regardless I will find myself back in that store every chance I get, and it is honestly up there in ranks for me. Give it a try and tell me about your experience I would definitely want to know what you think about 24 Chicken.
