What You'll Get
During the historic foot race between the ostrich, penguin, and chicken, the penguin fell asleep and the ostrich's girlfriend left him for a falcon. Today's Groupon gets you quick bites of the fastest flightless bird: for $8, you get $16 worth of chicken at Chicken Kitchen. Unlike traditional get-and-go grub, Chicken Kitchen prides itself on serving up grilled, not greasy, fowl.
The menu stuffs succulent bird alongside healthy salads and fresh sides. Try the famed chop-chop salad with optional rice, diced tomatoes, and freshly chopped breast bedded on a collection of shredded greens ($5.29–$5.79 for a regular, $7.49–$7.99 for large). Non-carnivorous eaters can opt for a southwestern spin on the salad with black beans, sour cream, guacamole, cheddar cheese, and white or yellow rice ($4.99, $6.99). Chicken Kitchen also serves original grilled chicken breast ($3.99 and up), and its selection of fresh sides includes balsamic tomatoes, seasonal veggies, freshly mashed potatoes, and more.
Fast food fare has a solid reputation of strange protein bases basting in excessive pools of oily grease. This Groupon fills you up on the run with healthy, nutritious cuisine. Redeem it at one of three cozy, casual Chicken Kitchen eateries: Rice Village, McKinney Place Tunnel, or Shops at Houston Center.
The Houston Chronicle has featured Chicken Kitchen, and Citysearch called it the place for Best Houston Fast Food in 2006. Three users on Yahoo! Local give Chicken Kitchen the full five stars, Citysearchers give it 4.5 stars, nine Yelpers give it 3.5, and 72% of 55 Urbanspooners like it:
- wow this place is awesome… it is my healthy addiction. – johnhamil65, Citysearch
- Chicken Kitchen offers the benfits [sic] of other fast/casual places, offering great taste and great healthy meals. The staff is great, they're always in a good mood and very helpful. It's a great place to get a power lunch or go after working out at nights, it won't give you the guilt of overeating like other places. – jcar8, Citysearch
- It's so nice to see a fast food style chicken restaurant with grilled chicken that is moist and succulent. The fat grains of rice that can accompany it are a tasty toothsome delight. Other healthy sides include roasted plantains - Great! – K C Foore, Urbanspoon
