    The title says it all. Are they good, and are they worth the money?
  2. I don't like them. One killed my brother.
  3. Yes, chickenbackers are good, especially with biscuits, mashed potatoes and gravy. Oh, and carrots.

    I like the gravy, but, honestly, I could do without the biscuit.

    I prefer my chickenbackers buffalo style.
  7. I only like the fair trade, cruelty free chickenbackers. The fast ones often have their wings clipped and the headstock cut off. :D

    I like it but I am kind of a fat guy so I have to have at least the 4 pc Chickenbacker dinner with a side of flats and of course....... Diet Coke! :D
  11. Doesn't the Chickenbacker always get into huge fights with the Peter bass?

    I wish they made a decent 5-wing version.

    Chickenbacker pot pie is the best.
  15. I have to admit...the hotter my chickenbackers are, the better.
  16. Once you taste one, everything else will taste like it.

    That's what they cost at Target. They're a little more at Costco, but you get 20 of them in a box.
