Broasted: The Tried and True Method – Broasted Chicken is nothing new... well maybe it is, if your hero is Matlock. OK, sorry about that. Aside from the corny reference, there's nothing corny about how broasted chicken has become one of the most underestimated guilty pleasures of the American diet. In a land where over-consumption is the name of the game, Americans refuse to limit their portions but insist on having a Diet Cola with their double cheeseburger and cross their fingers before their nightly walk to the scale. That being said, Grandma's Chicken as well as other spawn of the consistently delicious broasted chicken method is to be consumed in moderation.
Although there have been unsubstantiated claims of its advantages in fat content to fried chicken, one things is for sure; if you want legitimate, juicy, piping hot chicken flavor, broasted is the way to go. The batter is literally pressure seared to the point where it cannot be removed (as opposed to the frying chicken, where one could easily remove the skin). The nutty outside covering lays the welcome mat to what is an experience in the taste of chicken.
Grandmas was my first true run-in with this delicious incarnation, and to say I could taste the difference between Grandma's and say, another broasted chicken restaurant, would be a disservice. The only way in which these restaurants are unique are that there are distinctive flavors locked in with the aroma provided by the oil, which is not any indication of quality but a matter of preference.
I would not recommend dining in at Grandma's. With the multiple amounts of broasters running, the temperature seems to be roughly 5-10 degrees Fahrenheit higher than outside, no matter what the weather is (imagine walking in during a Southern California heat wave). My best advice to you would be to order by phone and make it to go. They are very good about large portions (as previously mentioned, they use multiple machines) so catering is a good option. Happy eating!
