Winner, winner chicken dinner! (Finally, we can use this strange expression without sounding absolutely nuts.) Hot Chicken Takeover has been a non-stop force ever since its conception, welcoming Columbus into its comforting wings, holding us close, and whispering that it’s all going to be OK. Comfort food should be just that—no-nonsense, flavorful goodness that we can depend on when the rest of the world seems to spiral out of control. Now, more than ever, we need the sweet dependability of hot chicken to lull us to sleep when nothing else seems to make sense. Bravo, you did it again.
