    CNN is shining a light on three of the “most consequential races” in 2018 — including the Texas bid for U.S. Senate — through debates or town halls in the coming weeks. But Texans won’t get to see incumbent Republican U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz and Democratic challenger U.S. Rep. Beto O’Rourke of El Paso face off in this series. “Sen. Ted Cruz (R) declined CNN’s invitation to participate in the town hall,” a CNN statement noted. So O’Rourke will be featured in a live, one-hour town hall with CNN Chief Political Correspondent Dana Bash in South Texas on Oct. 18....

    Forget the Golden Arches of McDonald’s, or the Whopper at Burger King, even the double double of In-N-Out Burger. Chick-fil-A is the tops for those wanting a fast meal. The chicken chain was named the favorite limited-service restaurant by consumers according to the 2018 American Customer Satisfaction Index’s Restaurant Report, USA Today reported. Chick-fil-A beat out other restaurants like Panera and Taco Bell based on interviews with 22,500 customers. They were asked about the products, services and satisfaction, USA Today reported. Specifically, those polled gave their ranking on a variety of topics including food quality and restaurant cleanliness, Fortune reported....

    So you can imagine how upsetting it was for me when Chick-fil-A’s president, Dan Cathy, proudly came out as a homophobe in 2012 by claiming, “We are inviting God’s judgment on our nation when we shake our fist at Him and say, ‘We know better than you as to what constitutes a marriage,’ and I pray God’s mercy on our generation that has such a prideful, arrogant attitude to think that we have the audacity to define what marriage is about.” Even worse, the company put its money where Cathy’s vile mouth was by donating millions of dollars each year...

    Chick-fil-A has a secret, and it’s my pleasure to share: the chain has a whole host of secret menu items. Some are so good they’ve arguably become even more popular than the regular menu items, according to Hack the Menu. There’s no “official” secret menu, but it seems the less complicated a special item is, the more likely employees will make it for you. Here are some of the Chick-fil-A secret menu items that have people buzzing: Buffalo Chicken Sandwich This is simply the Spicy Chicken Sandwich plus the signature Zesty Buffalo Sauce. You end up with a crispy buffalo...
  • United Kingdom fake chicken? KFC to experiment with fried faux-meat in Britain

    WWTCD? The colonel, most likely, would lose his mind over the recent news that KFC in Britain is experimenting with a vegetarian version of the founder’s famous fried chicken. You know, the top-secret Original Recipe chicken, the one with 11 herbs and spices that (reportedly) only two executives have access to at any one time. As part of a countrywide campaign to slim down, KFC UK is heeding the new guidelines issued by Public Health England, which recommends that British adults consume only 400 calories at breakfast and 600 apiece at lunch and dinner. KFC UK told the Daily Mirror,...
  • Monthly Cooking Thread - June 2018

    Last week we tried ‘roasting’ a whole chicken in the Instant Pot, and used the Lemon and Herb Chicken recipe on the Instant Pot website. The meat itself turned out amazing, very moist and tender; but as we suspected when discussing this last month, the skin was not crispy. We got around this by giving the chicken a few minutes under the broiler after cooking, and as Liz suggested one could use a chef’s torch. We came away from the experience thinking that it’s a great way to do a chicken if you want to use the meat in a...

    A TEAM of stem cell researchers have done the seemingly impossible and successfully combined artificial human cells with the embryo of a chicken in a shock new experiment aimed at trying to better understand developing life. ================================================================================== Until now, scientists have been unable to answer how certain cells in a developing embryo decide to become muscles or limbs, while others become bones and nerves. But now researchers led by Dr Ali Brivanlou, from Rockefeller University in New York, have achieved the unimaginable in a shock experiment. By grafting petri dish-grown human cells onto the embryo of a chicken the scientists...

    NEW YORK (FOX5NY) - A woman on Staten Island went on a rampage at a Popeye’s restaurant after apparently trying to order an item that’s only available at fast food rival Wendy’s. The incident ended with the woman shattering a plate glass window in the front of the store with a chair. The NYPD says the woman entered the Popeye’s location on Forest Ave. at around 8:30 p.m. on April 8. She apparently became angry that her meal didn't come with a soda. The employees suggested that she might have mixed up Popeye’s “$4 Wicked Good Deal” with Wendy’s “4...

    Johan Land has a life that stands out even among Silicon Valley’s tech elite: He’s the lead product manager at Waymo (formerly known as Google’s self-driving car project), a job that keeps him glued to computer screens and fixated on the future. Excelling at his work, Land said, requires an obsessive focus on it. But maintaining that passion — especially with his fourth child on the way — means knowing when to detach. Land’s secret to success: relaxing with a glass of wine in the back yard alongside his wife, kids and the family’s 13 chickens and three sheep. It’s...

    Twelve states are trying to take a California egg law to the Supreme Court, according to a lawsuit filed Monday. A dozen states filed the lawsuit Monday to block a California law requiring any eggs sold in the state must come from hens that have enough space to stretch out in their cages, reported The Associated Press. This law has cost consumers up to $350 million annually due to the higher egg prices, according to the Missouri Attorney General Josh Hawley. The states suing are Alabama, Arkansas, Indiana, Iowa, Louisiana, Missouri, Nebraska, Nevada, North Dakota, Oklahoma, Utah and Wisconsin.

    Coxhinas are little chicken croquettes and a very popular street food in Brazil. The chicken is poached, shredded and mixed with cream cheese and various seasonings, wrapped in dough, and then deep fried. The poaching broth is reserved to make the dough, which is sometimes made partly from mashed potatoes. They're supposed to resemble a chicken leg, but most look more like pears, to me; you can shape them any way you like. Here is a basic recipe, and then some links to videos showing variations. The 'Food Busker' has a way with them that looks especially flavorful: https://www.thespruce.com/coxinha-brazilian-chicken-croquettes-3029668https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RMtQhqDHD-Mhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=54K-Ub4QHbAFor your...

    Thirteen years after Morgan Spurlock’s hit documentary Super Size Me put the fast-food industry on blast and the filmmaker on the map as one of the modern era’s best-known documentarians, Spurlock is back with a sequel. Super Size Me 2: Holy Chicken! will have its world premiere on Friday at the Toronto International Film Festival (screening details for those in Toronto for the fest can be found here). Whereas in the original film, the Oscar-nominated Spurlock attempted to eat only McDonald’s food products for a 30-day period, Super Size Me 2 finds the filmmaker opening up his own fast-food establishment,...

    A lonely monkey at an Israeli zoo has found a way to soothe her maternal urges: by adopting a chicken. Niv, an Indonesian black macaque, has spent the past week caressing, cleaning and playing with the bird at the Ramat Gan Safari Park near Tel Aviv. "It seems that Niv, who is four years old and has reached the age of sexual maturity, has difficulty finding a partner," the zoo's spokeswoman Mor Porat said. "This probably explains the maternal instinct she expresses to this chicken." The bird, which doesn't have a name, could easily escape through the bars but chooses...

    To get protesters to leave the Local Butcher Shop alone, the Berkeley meat market’s owners agreed to promote an animal rights message. Now, in the upper left corner of one of the store’s front windows, there’s a 15-inch-by-15-inch sign. In white letters on a black background, it reads: “Attention: Animals’ lives are their right. Killing them is violent and unjust, no matter how it’s done.” In exchange for putting up the sign, Direct Action Everywhere, an animal rights group, agreed to protest at the store only twice a year.

    We have a number of Freepers who have been following the Low-Carb way of eating, so I thought we’d do another of our occasional Low-Carb threads this week. A drawback I’ve found with Low-Carb recipe books is they are often written by fitness or nutrition experts, not actual Chefs; and many of the recipes leave a lot to be desired in terms of flavor. One book I return to often is George Stella’s ‘Livin' Low Carb’. In addition to creating great recipes, Chef Stella and his family members have successfully lost a lot of weight on the Low-Carb system, and...

    SAVANNAH, Georgia (KRON) — A Georgia restaurant owner and her teenage daughter were beaten up by a couple, and it was all caught on camera. And the attack all started over cold chicken. The video is disturbing. The owner of a Qwik Chick restaurant, Jeanette Norris, says the incident happened Thursday. A couple went to her stand and complained about their food being cold. After a few minutes back and forth, Jeanette says she refunded their money, but then she says the couple went crazy. They started cussing and beating down the window. Norris went outside to tell them police...
  • What is so bad about a chicken dinner?

    People always talk bad about a chicken dinner. Be it a $50 a plate "rubber chicken" dinner at a fundraiser for some state rep, a low-budget dinner served at a wedding reception (usually at a VFW hall) buffet-style in those big metal trays heated with sterno cans or maybe a "grab-and-go" dinner for home after work. What I mean by "grab-and-go" are usually those ubiquitous rotisserie chickens that are under those hot lights at supermarkets all across America for something like $7.99 for an entire chicken ($5.99 if you have the store discount card). But damn, those rotisserie chickens sure...
