Of all the flightless birds, chickens remain America’s favorite kind to eat, narrowly beating out penguins, kiwis, and Larry Bird. Make bird the word with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of chicken tenders, wings, and more at Chicken Delight in North Bergen.
Chicken Delight piques appetites with a plethora of quick poultry eats served in a casual eatery or, for an additional fee, delivered fresh from the restaurant to dining-room tables. Family feeders can quiet an entire brood of bellowing bellies with a 12-piece family special of fried or grilled chicken breasts, thighs, legs, and wings accompanied by a six dinner rolls, a batch of french fries, and a pint of coleslaw, potato salad, or macaroni salad ($22.70). Miniature fowl feasts, such as a 5-piece chicken-tender lunch special with a can of soda and choice of side ($6.50), appease solo eaters, and a 14-piece shrimp plate raised on deep-sea granges, cooked to perfection and paired with dipping sauce ($15.30) invites twosomes in the mood for underwater barnyard grub to share. Fighter pilots can keep hot and spicy aileron edibles, such as 20 white-meat buffalo wings ($12.50), company inside stomach skies with a smorgasbord of savory sides, such as mashed potatoes ($1.75–$2.85), mac 'n' cheese ($2.60–$4.50), breaded mushrooms ($6), yellow rice ($2.05–$3.20), or corn on the cob ($1.95).
Chicken Delight is open 363 days a year, closing only on Christmas and Thanksgiving. It's a good thing it's open almost every day, serving locals heaping servings of their golden-fried chicken, mac and cheese, buttery rolls, wings, and homemade coleslaw. Not to mention the cookie-crusted Oreo mousse cake, or the buckets of ribs pulled up daily from the restaurant's sauce well. Family specials stock multiple bellies at once with piles of chicken, ribs, shrimp, and sides, while lunch specials pair favorite foods into hearty single-servings.
