At BBQ Chicken, it’s not “barbecue” chicken; it’s the “best of the best quality chicken.” The first BBQ Chicken franchise in South Florida opened in October in London Square shopping center, offering customers “the world’s healthiest and tastiest chicken.”
The signature Olive Original Chicken is enjoyed in more than 37 countries at more than 3,500 locations worldwide. BBQ Chicken regional developer Sang Chul Lee said that the quality of the meat and the way that it is cooked is what makes it good for you and taste delicious, too.
“The chicken is cooked in 100 percent extra virgin olive oil,” Lee said. “Our meat is delivered daily, so it is always fresh, never frozen.”
The popular Olive Original Chicken is marinated for 24 hours, battered and breaded with more than 30 ingredients. This process gives the chicken great flavor, crispy skin and tender meat. Another favorite, the Cajun Spiced Chicken is seasoned with more than 20 different herbs and spices, and grilled to perfection.
These and other popular chicken choices, including Barbecue Chicken and Grilled Garlic Chicken, are available as a family meal that includes a whole chicken, two sides and four biscuits.
BBQ Chicken also offers 10 different flavors of wings, including Crispy Wings, Wings of Fire and Garlic Wings. Sandwiches such as California Chicken Melt and Crispy Chicken Club, and salads such as Crispy Chicken Caesar and Grilled Chicken Cobb make great lunch choices.
For the best value on a complete meal, Lee recommends the platter combos that include your choice of wings, a sandwich or chicken option, partnered with a side, salad and drink.
Although the food is cooked quickly, Lee said that it is not made ahead of time like “fast food.”
“The cooking process begins when the order is placed,” Lee said. “It takes about 10 to 13 minutes to cook the order, so we encourage customers to call ahead so we can have their order waiting for them when they arrive. It’s not fast food, but healthy food.”
Customers also can call to order party packs of the delicious wings or other chicken options to serve at business luncheons, parties and events.
