The Top Ten

LOVE IT! It is so yummy especially for a fast food resturaunt! It is amazing and absolutely DELICIOUS! I would go there ANY day for the awesome chicken! All the food is so good!
Simply the best, they are juicy with a slight sweet flavor to them.


Chick-Fil-A has the best and healthiest chicken you can get. The fact that it also comes with incredibly friendly service, even better. I only wish they had more locations!
[Newest]Where's the coating? Thinner than a piece of paper

2Church's Chicken
Love Church's please come to Southwest PA
Love that marinated taste with a fresh jalapeno.
Perfect... Much better than KFC OR CHICKEN EXPRESS
[Newest]Delicious- best chicken so far that I have tried.

Sarcasm... Ready?

Oh, how I love their nuggets, those 5 percent nuggets, I could eat them everyday, bones and all


Oh My God their chicken nuggets are so good how are they not on here?
If you like pink goop, giblets, bones, neck, and butt.
[Newest]I love this place

4Kentucky Fried Chicken
Actual chicken when you break a piece open-love the slightly crunchy texture. The meat is never dried out or in need of heavy dipping sauce.
It only ranks at #2 because there are not enough Popeye's or Church's all around the country
Their chicken strips are flawless. Popeye's U No U can't touch this steamy goodness

Love the spiciness and crispiness of their strips. KFC is way too greasy and soggy around my area.
High quality chicken, with an amazing flavor! Hand breaded and made in house which is a huge freshness booster.
I love there chicken it is filled with love and joy
[Newest]Love Popeye's please come to Southwestern PA

I just check this page for best chicken strips and since Wendy's was around the corner less than 1/2 mile I figured to try them. They were they worst chicken I every should had drove the extra 1/4 to KFC since they were rated better. They should remove Wendy's from list.
there chicken tenders are outstanding!


By far my favorite fast food option.

7Dairy Queen
For sure the best!
Absolutely the best chicken strips ever. I would place Jack in the Box right behind DQ.


8Burger King

My friend's father owns a local Sonic, so every time we have a party he brings Sonic chicken. It tastes super good and I think that it is reasonably healthy for fried chicken.
They have a pretty good flavor to them


10Jack in the Box
Not overly spicy and the right amount of actual crunch!

The Contenders

Best chicken tenders ever!
The chicken tastes so fresh. All around perfection.
in bojangles you get the most 4 your money


Just MAGICALLY DELICIOUS! Better than Chester's Fried! Chester's Fried and Cane's CRAP!
If you put zax sauce on it, then this is amazing


Great, along with Chicken Express!

I absaulitly love checkers if I could without getting.sick I would all day evetyday

Cane's is EASILY the best chicken strip I've ever had. I'm from Chicago, so have had KFC, Popeye's, Wendy's, Church's & Long John Silver's (the second best in my humble opinion) since I was a kid. I had Cane's for the first time early this year and go back every time I'm in a state where there is a franchise.

Crossing my fingers they'll eventually move to Illinois so we can finally get a quality chicken strip.
Raising Cane's is in more states than that now. But that's pretty much all they are! But I never liked having to deal with bones anyway. Still they got a signature sauce too.
Only in louisiana but way better than KFC but not as good as Popeyes
There's no chicken strip better hands down.

15Chicken Express
KFC is so overrated, this is where it is when it comes to chicken tenders! For regular fried chicken, our local grocery store chain, United, their deli has the best bone-in fried chicken EVER. KFC is good too, just not as good as these.
Best tenders, best variety of sides and Famous sweet tea... Doesn't get much better than that

16Go Chicken Go

17Huey Magoos
Kick but batter excellent sauce!

18Steak n' Shake


Chicken Joy is delicious.


They are terrific! 4 out of 5!

23Long John Silver's
Batter, not breading, really makes a difference. The best fast food chicken around in my opinion.
Yay fat people site

24Chester's Fried
Plump juicy chicken pieces, you get a lot for your money


25Bush's Chicken
If I can't have Popeye's or Church's - Bush's is next - another francise welcome in Southwest PA
