This bluegrass state fried chicken is an institution across America. Royal Oakers, now is not the time to say why Chicken Shack is better- the rest of the country doesn’t get it . I’m focusing on the guy in the white suit. It’s Air fried, so it’s healthier. I don’t have 11 herbs and spices; I have more if you read all the labels. In the air fryer, it will come out extra crispy, and in the oven, like regular. I hope you like it.
