Red Velvet Fried Chicken. My Soul Says YES!

Y’all KNOW I don’t typically blog midday but when things of such importance arise, I must ring the alarm! I have been alerted to the existence of RED VELVET FRIED CHICKEN by THIS!

Red Velvet Fried Chicken

Proof that God loves us.





Yes, I must type that in all caps each time because it is just that astounding and awesome. My spirit is moved. My soul is uplifted.

I LOVE red velvet anything. Cupcakes, cheesecake, batter… You name it. And fried chicken makes the world go round. This is fact. Like really. The Earth’s axis are greased with fried chicken oil. That’s what makes it rotate so smoothly. Look it up.

So to COMBINE THEM??? Jesus hold my mule and my heart! Here’s the recipe as listed by the restaurant that came up with this delicious evil:

“At first glance, it’ll look like a heaping plate of leg, thigh and breast. But upon further inspection, you’ll see that the chicken has taken on a slight reddish hue. That’s because your precious fried bird has been pre-soaked in AC’s signature red velvet cake batter, then dredged in toasted, crumbled bits of red velvet cupcake before being dipped in a frying pan.”

So now I have some pertinent questions.

Is it served by unicorns on phoenix feathers? (I’m apt to believe it is. And comes with a side of eye of newt.)

Are my taste buds going to do the WOP upon first taste or will they go into overdrive? (My taste buds are already doing the cabbage patch in anticipation.)

Why didn’t I think of this first? (I don’t use my creative juices for the right things.)

Will my arteries clog up upon first bite? (Probably.)

Is this the epitome of the diabeetus? (I’m sure of it.)

Do I even care? (I’m pretty sure I don’t.)

Why don’t they deliver cross-country? (They’re in California. I’m in Illinois.)

Whose chef hat do I have to steal to get some of this? (Maybe Chef Julius’. Although I’m sure he is NOT in support of this.)


Won’t you join me in a group *leyomi drop* session at the thought of this RED VELVET FRIED CHICKEN?

synchronized leyomi dropping gif


My soul says yes. My arteries say no. What say you? Am I the only one looking at my screen really hard hoping to channel some magical scratch and sniff power of the interwebs?

Edit: So I called American Cupcake, the bakery that makes the RED VELVET FRIED CHICKEN. They’re located in San Francisco, CA. And I asked them if they deliver it cross country. They broke my heart and said no. Allow me to now go throw myself off a step stool unto soft carpet. HEART BROKEN! WHY WON’T THEY GIVE PEACE A CHANCE??? *wall slide*

Who lives in San Francisco and wants to pick me up some, freeze and ship it? WHO I SAY?!? I shall commence “Operation Get Some RED VELVET FRIED CHICKEN” and will not rest until I get some.

    Just looking at that picture of red velvet fried chicken just gave me diabetes, high blood pressure and raised my bad cholesterol by 40 pts,- all at the same time. But I won’t lie, that looks good.

    My personal trainer nor nutritionist would not approve.

    BTW, I’m a first time poster. I’m a little late to your blog party (just discovered it two weeks ago), but now that I know, I visit frequently.

    Keep up the good work.

    • August 13, 2010 at 5:11 pm

      WELCOME!!! Don’t be a stranger ’round these parts. I’ma start handing welcome cookies or something.

      But yes, my girl who is a personal trainer has already mean-mugged me several times.

  9. August 13, 2010 at 4:49 pm

    I want some and I want some know. *straps Zoey in her carseat and heads to Cali.

  12. August 13, 2010 at 6:43 pm

    I curse the gods of bad digestion that render me unable to eat chicken or cake. I was dealing with it okay until I read this and discovered that I have been condemned to a life without Red Velvet Fried Chicken! I’ve never had a WALL SLIDE moment before but this is surely worthy….

    Luvvie you must eat this and live tweet (including twitpics) the entire experience so that I and all your other colonically-challenged readers can live vicariously through you!

    • August 13, 2010 at 6:49 pm

      Welcome to my blog! So glad you dig it. Don’t be a stranger around here. 🙂

  16. August 15, 2010 at 2:09 pm

    I was laughing my ass off at this post, eyeballs drooling at the screen and err’thang, until you said that this place was located in San Fran- F*cking-Cisco (s’cuse my language, but im pretty heated rah’t bout nah)! The very place I lived in for the last 9 months! The very place I just RELOCATED from due to a promotion! I am now sitting here, holding myself, rocking to and fro. I am unsuccessfully trying to calm the shakes that are taking over my Red.Velvet.Fried.Chicken-LESS. body. As soon as I regain control of my facilities, I will be making a call to the airline and booking a flight. I will report back to you upon recovering from the epic case of the ‘itus that is sure to follow the meal. Unitl then, pray for me, cuz dis ish aint cute.

    Thank you, and good day.

    *logs the hell off*

    I live just across the water from SF. I almost lost my shit when you said the bakery was in Cali, then I started praying it was at least somewhere near me (a lot of the good shit’s in SoCal but LA ad that area down there is a world away from us here). When you said it’s in SF, I made a mental note to head over there ASAP. If you need me to FedEx you some fried chicken, hit me up 😉

    • Capricorn
      August 16, 2010 at 2:31 pm

      I need you to FedEx me some. I”ll reimburse you and all.

      And iLive for Luvvie and her posts. 🙂 I started using iLive, iDied, iCant IRL, like out loud. People look at me like this: o.0, but i’on even care!! Lemme call my soror in SF and see if she can get me some.

    • August 19, 2010 at 12:00 am

      Yeah, I’m being punished, but please believe I am on the phone with my girlfriends who will be going and getting this meal for me and shipping it down south this weekend. Which still doesn’t help, as I will be in Chi-raq this weekend. I cant win for loosing… at least I can wear some red pumps, stand on Michaigan Ave and hope to run into you… *oh well*
