Fried Chicken

With its well-seasoned, crispy outer layer and juicy, tender meat, it’s easy to see why our fried chicken is one of our most beloved products. Pairing a box of fried chicken with a few of our grab & go deli sides makes for a classic Publix experience and a quick and easy meal on those busier vacation days.
