OrangeTV: Chicken Basket To Open Soon

New greasy food shack alert: Opening soon on Northwest Boulevard across from the Spokesman Review building in Coeur d’Alene is the Chicken Basket. The signs read “Fish and Chicken” and”Broasted Foods” but otherwise, it’s a bit of a mystery. I can’t imagine that Paul Bunyan, also located directly across the street is too thrilled about this development since they also sell chicken and fish, although “broasted” certainly doesn’t describe their brand of deep-fryer abuse. Hopefully they’ll come up with something unique and wonderful - I fear that building is cursed, having been home to the ill-fated Pasty Depot several years back along with several failed skate shops. Expect some form of a review here as soon as they open for biz/OrangeTV, Get Out! North Idaho. More Bread Crumbs here.

Question: Where do you buy your take-home chicken?
