I commented on the other thread that we had fried chicken as one of our entree selections. It was definitely good it was a selection because some people didn’t want it. Also, it was a boneless chicken breast and it wasn’t really fried like they do at KFC. It wasn’t as greasy and I ate it with a fork and knife because I hate eating with my hands anyway. But it definitely wasn’t on the same level as fast food fried chicken.
I wouldn’t call it “fancy” because, well, it’s fried chicken. But it was made by the restaurant (which was a pretty nice restaurant) plus we had other options and it was a much better version of fried chicken in my opinion.

Just wanted to chime in and say. . .In college, I worked at a banquet hall as a summer job, and one of the popular family-style dishes was fried chicken!
Also, I recently attended a graduation party that served fried chicken from Walmart. Much to my delight, it was extremely tender and wonderfully crispy! I’m not a big fan of meat off the bone, but I must say that it was quite good.
I wouldn’t expect food at a wedding to come in a box (aside from maybe a yummy candy bar or other delectable delight that’s a take-home treat!), but if it was served in bowls (family style) or on a buffet in some sort of tray, why not?

If that was the only meat available I would eat it. But I don’t like fried chicken in general. I think it’s fine for a wedding though! My DH would go crazy 🙂

I would eat it but I would find it odd to be served fried chicken at a wedding. I find it to be too casual plus when I’m in a nice dress and heels, I don’t want to be eating with my hands/fingers.

I really dislike KFC.
I do like fried chicken though. But more like homemade fried chicken. Theres this restaurant in town that makes fried chicken and it is to die for.
Also, that restaurant does the fried chicken on waffles. Most amazing thing in this world. I absolutely love it.
You should do fried chicken and waffles. lol

I dont know if I am a little bit too country, southern or whatever. I like everything classy at weddings but when it comes to food… I love going to events with what i consider “celebratory foods” bbq meatballs, baked mac and cheese, FRIED chicken wings..not an 8 piece no…i have an aunt that makes them for EVERY family funtion. So yall better believe mine will have them!! 🙂 but it wont be the only thing there either!

I really wanted to do chicken and waffles at our wedding! (with other selections of course) But DH said no lol. We’re having a reception lunch at a Cajun place though, so I guess that makes up for it.

I think it depends on the formality of the occasion. We’re having pulled pork Carolina BBQ, but we’re getting married on the beach and having a tented reception in the backyard of a beach house, I wouldn’t do that for a black tie formal affair! I think we’ll provide bibs, though. I will probably be the messiest eater there and I’m the one in the white dress so it’ll be necessary!

I think its rather rude of anyone to turn their nose up at any wedding food no matter what it is. People were kind enough to invite you to their wedding and have food for you. Even if it wasnt my favorite thing I would still eat some its just rude not to (unless you have a food allergy or something like that then I understand)

I just don’t like fried chicken. Also, if it’s a formal event, I don’t think it’s polite to eat any thing with your hands (besides appetizers) and I’d feel awkward cutting into a chicken wing with a knife and fork. If it were a more casual wedding then I don’t think it would be looked down upon at all.
