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, seafood, and more at The Chunky Chicken in Joliet.
The Chunky Chicken fills its menu with a multitude of well-seasoned white-meat options. The eatery's signature chicken chunks are marinated in special seasonings for two whole days, then breaded and deep fried or grilled. The Chunky Bowl dresses chicken chunks in a mashup of corn and mashed potatoes, erupting with molten gravy and cheddar cheese ($5.95 with a small drink). Chicken chunks are available in a variety of other incarnations, including inside a wrap or pita, sandwiched in french bread, cheese, and mayo, or drenched in barbecue sauce ($4.95 each, or $6.95 in a combo with a side and medium drink). A selection of surf includes the Fisherman's Platter, which arrives splayed with cod, walleye, and shrimp ($8.95–$10.95). The Chunky Chicken assures customers that each dish is served fresh, without the artificial warmth of heat lamps or backhanded compliments employed by inferior poultry establishments.
