Pioneer Fried Chicken

I still get requests for this quite often, and I have done many searches. There are unfulfilled requests on message boards all around the web, so others have searched as well. No one has had any success. There's no copycat recipe available. If you have a good one, please send it to me. If you are an ex - Pioneer employee and can tell me about the chicken, please write.

Information about Pioneer Fried Chicken Info from a former employee. This is the most I've ever found.

There is also a Pioneer Fried Chicken copycat recipe here and below: Pioneer Fried Chicken
