TAKE-OUT TIPS— 5280 food editor Amanda Faison says some of the best fried chicken doesn't actually come from a restaurant — it comes from King Soopers: "For years, friends have told me that the grocer has some of the best fried chicken in town. I was skeptical, but now I understand the praise. At King Soopers, fresh pieces of chicken are hand-breaded using a seasoning from Chester's, a national chain of chicken restaurants. The chicken, served warm, was the juiciest I had all summer." [5280]
