Texas Chicken

Special thanks to Texas Chicken for extending this food review invitation.

Texas Chicken opens its first outlet in Penang today - the first Malaysian outlet outside Klang Valley. This fast food franchise is known as Church's Chicken in the United States.
Church Chicken was established in San Antonio, Texas in 1952. The first Malaysian outlet opened in Aeon Bukit Tinggi in 2013. All 33 outlets before today were confined to Klang Valley due to logistical concerns - until today's opening of the 34th outlet in 1st Avenue Mall. According the management of Texas Chicken, there are plans to open more outlets in the northern region of Peninsular Malaysia.
There are 2 flavors of fried chicken here: Spicy and Original. The spicy version packs a respectable punch of pungency on the tongue. Texas Chicken differentiates itself from competitors by offering better value for money. For example, each piece of fried chicken is substantially larger than those served at similar restaurants. Chicken is delivered on daily basis, and is double-breaded by hand. As a result, lean meat especially chicken breast meat is considerably more flavorful.
As for finger foods, try some Chicken Tenders. Made from boneless white meat, the chicken fingers are perfect for small children. Like fried chicken, the fillets are also available in Spicy and Original flavors. Customers may choose between two dipping sauces: BBQ and Honey Mustard.
Besides chicken, Honey-Butter Biscuit is another specialty at Texas Chicken. The term "biscuit" here refers to the American lexicon for quick bread, which is usually known as "scones" in England. Compared to traditional English scones, Texas Chicken's biscuits are fluffier and more buttery. A fresh batch of biscuits is baked every 30 minutes to maintain their aromatic appeal.
Side dishes at Texas Chicken include Mashed Potatoes and Coleslaw. Carbonated drinks include unlimited refills - just like how it is practiced in American stores. All things considered, Texas Chicken does not want to nickel-and-dime its customers. Speaking of drinks, I like the soothing sensation when sipping the Southern Sweet Tea.

All Texas Chicken outlets in Malaysia, including this latest one at 1st Avenue Mall, are halal-certified. Although this store is only open for the first day, the public's response is overwhelming!
