The fried chicken that set the benchmark for salted egg themed fast food is coming back and reminding us they are the real deal.
A year after Texas Chicken launched the Real Salted Egg Fried Chicken, the chicken chain announced it will return from 16 July to 26 August, just in time for National Day celebrations. Cos Singaporeans and salted egg anything are synonymous amirite?
The Real Salted Egg Fried Chicken was first introduced July 2019 as a limited offering on Texas Chicken’s menu.
Despite being late to the salted egg game, Texas Chicken’s version was a resounding success. Apparently, Texas Chicken took three years to perfect the recipe, and uses only 100% fresh chicken that are delivered to the restaurants daily to ensure optimum juiciness and tenderness of the meat.
Unlike other brands that use powdered salted yolks, Texas Chicken coats the chicken with actual salted duck egg yolks fresh from the egg and salted egg crumbs to give the ultimate crunch with every bite.
FYI, commercially produced snacks/dishes rarely use fresh salted duck eggs because they are costlier and more perishable than the factory-made stuff.
This is yolk, truly
