I remember "Does anyone remember the Chicken Coop?" although not the restaurant. There seems to be a lot of demand for the recipe, so you might want to send him a direct message and ask if it can be shared on this thread.

Unhappy Chicken Coop

My cousin use to be the cook there and every now and than he would cook up a batch of chicken coop chicken for the family. I tried to get the recipe but he won't give it up, he is now about 79 or older. I tell you that was the best chicken ever and I guess we won't taste chicken like that again.

Didn’t I just mention this thread on another post when a poster asked about old threads being resurrected? This thread was started 12 years ago and comes back every so often. Boy that chicken must have been good.

I just had some decadent southern fried chicken in Westport last week. With biscuits and some kind of honey maple sauce. My God it was out of this world. I had to run almost a half marathon the next day.

Not sure something called the "Chicken Coop" would fly in today's America.

I make my own fried chicken. Follow my mother’s recipe which was excellent and still talked about in my family. I don’t make it often because it’s not healthy but every so often my kids want it. I’ve made it twice since March since I’ve had time on my hands. Im guessing I’ll be asked again soon. . I am making my kids help me now so they learn the recipe and how to cook it. It’s so good. Now I’m craving it.

Hi
I can't believe I just found this post. I realize I am about 12 years late in replying : ) I have been talking about the Chicken Coop for years! I thought I had imagined this magical place my dad took me as a child to get the most amazing onion rings. Sadly, it is one of the only memories I have of my father. We lived in CT and my dad would take me on his dry-cleaning deliveries with him as child. My parents owned Ted's clothing care. The Chicken Coop was one of weekly lunch stops. My parents divorced and I never saw him again. My mom moved to Florida with me and my brother and sister (long story). This place has special memories to me... Thank you for the update!

My wife and I would go there in the early 1960s, pick up chicken, wrap it in the blanket, and take it to a drive-in movie. Wonderful times! Would pay for that recipe
