Best Chicken Dishes in Houston


Last night, I made William my mom's famous Chicken Crescent Squares for the first time, and it went over very, very well. In keeping with the theme, my first installment of Food Finds Houston features chicken dishes. This short list only scratches the surface of what's out there, but I figure it's just as good a place to start as any.

chicken entrée :: Chicken Vincent -Pronto 
notes: Get a side of green beans. 

chicken noodle soup :: Mamma Mandola's Sicilian Chicken Soup -Carrabba's 
notes: This is exclusive to the original locations on Voss and Kirby. 

chicken pita :: Island Grill 
notes: Faysal, the founder of this neighborhood favorite, is opening his fourth location in Rice Village.

chicken salad :: The Salad Plate -The French House 
notes: I'm almost certain the dressing that comes on the side is the secret sweetening agent for the salad.

chicken sandwich :: Ding's Crispy Chicken Sandwich -Houston's 
notes: Start with the spinach artichoke dip, and prepare to be stuffed silly. 

chicken tenders :: Basket Appetizer -Pappy's Café
notes: Cut the gravy. Add extra honey mustard; it's Houston's best. 

chicken wings :: Buffalo Wings -Pappas Burger
notes: This opinion is WD's. 

chinese chicken salad :: Barnaby's 
notes: Enough for two or lunch and dinner. 

Dig in, and let me know what you think!

I'm no Houston food expert, but I'm surprised to see the Crunch Chicken Sandwich at Local Foods didn't make the list!
