Albertson’s fried chicken overview

Inside the store, you can choose chicken that’s already cooked from behind the counter, or depending on the day, there may be options beneath a heat lamp in a display case near the counter.  You can either choose from the fried or grilled option.

The store claims that it fries new chicken every 20 minutes; however, for large orders, such as the 100+ piece, the chicken will be made for your order, and you will more than likely be asked to come in at a certain time to pick up your order.

Depending on your order, the fried chicken may come in a large bucket or in a plastic container.

What are the extra costs?

You can add extra side servings to go with your chicken such as a macaroni salad or potato salad for an additional charge.  The deli has many options to go along with your meal.

While optional, if you are going to serve fried chicken at a large party, then you should consider a large tin container to serve the chicken.

Tips to know:

The average prep time for 100+ pieces is 12 hours.

The crust of Albertson’s fried chicken is said to be very crunchy, but it is not burnt or overcooked, according to those who are “addicted” to it.  There is plenty of crust which is very thick and flavorful.  The fried chicken is quite salty but also very tasty, like most other fried chicken chains.  They also include some special spices that add to its delectable taste.

If ordering 50+ pieces, the store allows no substitutions.
