Fried chicken is one of those things we could have almost every day. While all our plans to go out may be on hold for the time being, what’s great is that you can still find it at a number of places and get it delivered straight to your doorstep. Here, we round up establishments to check out to help you deal with those fried-chicken hankerings.
1. Bad Bird
There’s fried chicken, and then there’s Bad Bird’s Umami Fried Chicken, which has an especially flavorful exterior full of—as the name implies—umami goodness. The good news is, you can now get a selection of their dishes for delivery via GrabFood, Foodpanda, Grab Assistant, or Lalamove—including their signature chicken, which is available with rice and gravy (P280), with steamed rice, house gravy, and Sweet Potato Waffle (P430), with steamed rice, house gravy, and Torched Corn & Cheese (P375), or just with their Sesame Caesar Salad (P380).

Crispy on the outside and juicy on the inside, Jollibee’s Chickenjoy is popular to Pinoys for a reason. Thankfully, the local fast-food chain delivers from a number of branches. You can get your chicken fix either by purchasing their frozen chicken (P219/eight pieces), available at selected branches for a limited time, and cooking it at home—or ordering a ready-to-eat meal. Treat yourself with a one-piece plate with rice and gravy (P84/solo, P99/value meal) or two-piece plate with rice and gravy (P168/solo, P187/value meal), or share a six-piece bucket (P439/solo, P495/value meal), or eight-piece bucket (P549/solo, P659/value meal) with the family.

3. 8 Cuts
More than great burgers, 8 Cuts makes a mean fried chicken, very aptly named the Heavyweight Fried Chicken (P192)—and it’s available for delivery via GrabFood and Foodpanda. Not only does it live up to its name, size-wise; it’s also got a great balance of firmness and tenderness with flavor that reaches right down to the bone.

8. Señor Pollo
Señor Pollo is famed for their crispy, peppery fried chicken that’s served with an array of sides—and yes, you can get it delivered through Foodpanda, LalaFood, or GrabFood. It can be had regular or spicy—go for the 1-Piece with Two Sides (P194) if you’re dining solo or get a Whole Fried Chicken (P651) to share with the family. For sides, we can’t recommend their Spicy Rice and Fried Plantains enough.
For orders, find Señor Pollo on Foodpanda, LalaFood, or GrabFood.
9. Pancake House
Pancake House’s Classic Pan Chicken has a uniquely citrusy, savory profile that goes great with a mountain of steamed white rice. You can’t go wrong with the two-piece plate (P210), which comes with rice and gravy. If you’re looking to share, you can opt to get a box of eight pieces (P749), which comes with four cups of rice.
Wildflour has proven they’ve got a good hand on a lot of things: pastries, kimchi fried rice, and even fried chicken. It offers a hearty crunch that’s perfect paired with their flaky biscuits. Dining solo? They offer an àla carte version (P730) that you can get for takeout or delivered (you’ll have to book your own Grab or Lalamove) from their BGC branch. But if you’d rather share the fun with your family, you can opt to get a bigger tray of the dish (P2,780) from their delivery service, Wildflour To-Go.
