Here’s Where to Get Finger Lickin’ Fried Chicken in Westchester

Fried chicken is but a piece of Heaven, gifted to us mere mortals by the comfort-food gods.

We were digging through a list of inspirational quotes about Heaven (don’t ask why) and noticed something rather astounding: If one were to replace the word “Heaven” in each of these quotes with “fried chicken,” they provide just as much, if not way more, comfort when weighing the woes of this world. Let’s take a look at a few:

“I think [fried chicken] will be like a first kiss.” – Sarah Addison Allen
“If there were no hell, the loss of [fried chicken] would be hell.” – C.H. Spurgeon
“Earth has no sorrow that [fried chicken] cannot heal.” – Thomas Moore

That last one really spoke to us. But we digress, for today we are here to present you a piece of Heaven (a leg, or a thigh?) right here in Westchester. So if you, like us, seek the blessed, breaded refuge of fried chicken in these trying times, read on for a few of the county’s top spots to partake in comfort food’s holiest of offerings.
