On a recent road trip to Seattle, we were in search of delicious burgers from Dick’s Drive-In and we passed by a Heaven Sent Fried Chicken, a small fast food fried chicken chain in Seattle. It’s owned by Ezell Stephens, who was the original creator of Ezell’s Fried Chicken, but has since parted ways and owns three of the Heaven Sent Fried Chicken restaurants (Seattle, Everett and Renton). How good is this fried chicken that it’s Heaven Sent? We had to go and try it out!
Upon arrival, the inside was adorn with celebrity photos of those who have eaten at the chain, including Oprah Winfrey! If Oprah liked this chicken, so should we right? So we ordered a 3 piece dark meat meal, which included 3 pieces of juicy fried chicken, along with 2 sides to choose from (we selected mashed potatoes with gravy and coleslaw) and a biscuit. In addition we ordered a slice of sweet potato pie, side order of collard greens, and a piece of corn bread.
The collard greens were decent for the fast food selection, coleslaw just the right amount of vinaigrette, and the mashed potatoes with gravy complemented the chicken. The fried chicken was pretty delicious, but greasy. It reminded us of Canada’s Church’s Chicken or Mary Brown’s Chicken. The corn bread was a pretty popular item with my hubby and his friend. I preferred my dessert of the sweet potato pie, although I would’ve liked it more if it was warmed up.
