As in you don't like it? Don't worry, not everyone has to like everything. There are a ton of people that do not like Garbage Plates. If you are looking for good Chicken French, then try Mr. Dominicks...I especially like the Chicken Theresa, which is a combination of Chicken French and Shrimp Scampi I believe. There are a lot of places that do not make good chicken french, but want to have it on their menu.

There has only been a couple places that I have found that make a good Chicken French. Someone help me on the name, its on the corner of Buffalo RD and Pixley rd. (not the old Mexican place) The other place was actually for a reception at the Holiday Inn at the airport, I thought thiers was good too.

Its a taste thing, I prefer a good steak, medium rare, yum.

Not everyone shares the same tastebuds! to each his own... Every Dining Est. makes it different and you have to find the recipe you like the best.....

That is so funny! I LOVE ,LOVE Chicken French and didn't realize that it was so centralized to Rochester?
I can't find it anywhere very often where we live and when we come home I usually try to have some from Proietti's in Webster! it is FANTASTIC!!!
There was also a place in Charlotte many years ago that made really great Chicken French and artichokes French!

Aight clarification time. Its not the taste! Its like the first responder said theres alot of places (like most places) that have it on the menu. I have talked to a upscale restaunteur that tried to pull it from his menu and lost to much buisness so he had to put it back on. Good bad or indifferent

I just want to know why ? and why french otherthings?

I came from long island just over 6 months ago and was born in NYC and lived there for a long time. Chicken French is a variation of Chicken Francaise without the fancy same.
