There is no shortage of fried chicken options in Portland, and that's a good thing: There's really no excuse for standing in a long line for a taste of juicy chicken held snug within crispy, deep-fried batter. Portland’s fried chicken offerings span a wide range of styles from around the world: In one day, a visitor could eat Southern Thai fried chicken, Korean fried chicken, Indonesian fried chicken, fried chicken and jojos (a local specialty), soul food fried chicken, and more, all within city limits. Some of the fried wings and thighs on this map come in a sticky glaze; others are simply brined and fried. However, they all hit hot oil at some point, providing a satisfying crunch.
To celebrate Portland's standout fried chicken spots, this map features carefully battered or breaded birds from markets, food carts, dive bars, and restaurants. For more fried chicken, check out our Korean-style fried chicken or fried chicken sandwich maps.Read More
