The Top Ten

Simply the best, they are juicy with a slight sweet flavor to them.


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!
The first time I tried it I went back the same day to get another meal, it was too good to resist
[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


If you like pink goop, giblets, bones, neck, and butt.
Oh My God their chicken nuggets are so good how are they not on here?
[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
the restraunt that serves the best chicken. better than any other restraunt.


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]Best we have ever tasted!

6Dairy Queen
I love Dairy Queens chicken... I think I just like chicken too much.
For sure the best!
Absolutely the best chicken strips ever. I would place Jack in the Box right behind DQ.


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.
The chicken nuggets are best with ranch, and to dip in the frosty with your sprite on the side and 500 French fries in your mouth! I LOVE THEM so MUCH!
there chicken tenders are outstanding!


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!

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.
Like lots of people say, Cane's have the best chicken strips that I've ever have. They even have their own sauce, amazing crinkle cut fries (better than Zaxby's), and the sweet tea is wonderful. Cane's should be number one on the list. Whoever doesn't agree doesn't have taste buds.
[Newest]Canes is by far the freshest and most delicious chicken in the world. It shouldn't even be considered fast food.

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

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



19Huey Magoos
Kick but batter excellent sauce!
