Kentucky Fried Quail @ Blue Hound Kitchen -- You're right. It's not exactly chicken, but we couldn't help but slip this fried fowl onto the list. Executive Chef Stephen Jones has created what might possibly be one of our very favorite new fried dishes for this upscale industrial-modern hotel restaurant. The well-portioned plate features two savory seasoned (rumor has it Chef Jones got the recipe straight from the KFC folks) and breaded quail legs on a bed of tender foie gras cornbread with red beans and decadent sausage gravy. This memorable dish is hauntingly good, a must try for any fried chicken fanatic.

Campero Traditional Chicken @ Pollo Campero -- If you happen to have visited South America at some point in time, you'll know that this chicken is more popular than a 30-pack of bud light and a bottle of whipped cream vodka at an ASU frat party. The Latin-America chicken chain has been around since 1971 and has established more than 300 locations across the world, one of which just happens to be in West Phoenix. The chain breads each and every piece of marinated chicken by hand and fries the juicy pieces to order. The crispy coating has an almost sweet taste and -- somehow -- works perfectly with a side of black beans and rice and a couple warm corn tortillas.

Forget the name of the place.... in Apache Junction, on your way to Canyon Lake.

Before we saw "Killer Joe" this weekend, it was Lolo's - now it will be awhile before I want fried chicken again!

You left out two places: Noca does fabulous fried chicken the last Sunday of every month and FnB does an occasional early bird fried chicken dinner that is incredible.

my home I dislike nasty fried chicken at a place were kids nuke it or fry it in an oil bath of old oil from fish, chips, and pop corn shrimp.
