Popeyes and Chick-fil-A can keep arguing on Twitter about who has the best fried chicken sandwich. Over here at Salt Plate City, we already know who has the Best Fried Chicken in Salt Lake City, and we are clucking sure it isn’t from a national fast food chain. We’ve tried the best chicken fingers, the best chicken sandwiches, and even the best Korean fried chicken available in Salt Lake City, and nothing can top the crispy goodness of the SLC fried chicken spots below.

If you are specifically looking for fried chicken and waffles, be sure to visit our Best Chicken & Waffles in Salt Lake City list.

More and more SLC fried chicken spots are opening up and we are doing our best to stay on top of them. Didn’t see your favorite? Tell us who has your favorite fried chicken in Salt Lake City in the comments.
