    You won't find "official" Popeye's Chicken recipes as supposedly, at least, their chicken breading recipe is a secret, but if you google "copycat recipe, popeye's chicken" you will find recipes that try to come close.

    Like KFC, Popeye's chicken is pressure fried. This is hard to duplicate without special equipment.

    Have you ever considered getting a job there? That would be one way to find out.  /img/vbsmilies/smilies/lol.gif

    Waiting for fresh chicken one day and the cook came up to the register with several packets in his hand.

    Asked the counter girl where his scissors were.

    Bet a C note the secret was in those packets lol.

    I have also watched them dump a huge bag of beans and rice in the warmer....but I really don't care....soooo good!
