Popeyes Naked Chicken

Recommended Posts

I just received a flyer for Popeye's Naked Chicken with only 2 grams of carbs. They marinate, season, and deep fry the chicken with no breading. Has anyone tried this and is it gluten-free? My seven year old wants to have occasional chicken tenders, and this would be a wonderful alternative! Thanks for any help!

Most likely it is not safe because of the deep frying. If it isn't in a dedicated fryer then it is contaminated. The proteins from the breaded chicken would get on the naked chicken and make you very sick. You can always ask to see if they use the dedicated fryer though, then write the company to check on spices. It is worth a shot.

Yes...there's a pretty good, but slightly bland, bread crumb-type thing...made by Ener-G. My mom sometimes makes me chicken nuggets with fresh chicken into good-sized chunks covered with the bread crumbs...they can be made more interesting with gluten-free spices or salt. I've also tried them on veal and pork...also pretty good :)
