OvenBird now offers Fried Chicken for dinner Monday through Saturday. This Chris Hastings’ dish was originally offered only one night each week. But due to its deliciousness, and thus its popularity, it quickly became a menu item. Yet I suggest you go to early dinner for this bird because it has limited availability, and does sell out.
The golden-brown chicken, of white and dark meat, arrives in a brown paper bag inside a black crock. And it is accompanied by lovely, mouth puckering, pickled okra and white barbeque sauce. This beautiful bird is juicy, full of flavor, and highly recommended. The sauce adds a touch of creaminess. And the okra adds a touch of acidity. We paired it with their delicious deviled eggs, tasty tomato salad, and a refreshing Spring Hammer cocktail.
