This signature entrée has been on the Carolina House menu for 32 years, says owner Tammy Crawford: “We took it off once, and people had a fit.” The poultry is marinated in “a whole lotta spices,” then flash-fried and baked — a cooking method that results in a crispy, juicy, zesty bird. “We warn people that it’s a very spicy dish, but it’s not ‘hot’ spicy; it’s more of a vinegary taste,” says Crawford. “My relatives from Texas ask for it every time they visit.”
