Stop everything! Chicken covered in chocolate is a thing and it's available
Chicken and chocolate may be unlikely bedfellows, but not in the US.
A new restaurant has opened in Los Angeles called ChocoChicken and although it has only been open for a week now it is already doing a
clucking roaring trade. I know you are dying to find out how it's made, so here it is: The free-range chicken isn't fried in chocolate oil. It's lightly coated with a special cooking chocolate made from bittersweet cocoa, and fries up a shade of chocolate brown.
Excited? That's not all. Side dishes include White Chocolate Mashed Potatoes and Duck Fat Fries sprinkled with chocolate seasoning. Just when you thought chicken couldn't be any more finger licking good. We're not sure if it should be called Chickolate or Chocken, but no doubt, we'll be seeing one of these shops open up some day in Ireland if it continues to be as successful as its first week seems to suggest.
To think some people laughed at Scotland and their deep-fried Mars Bar ways......
