1. Chicken Institute, Surry Hills

Let the garlic caramel glaze wash over you, and realise that this place is actually worthy of its name since they are the chicken masters.

2. Stuffed Beaver, Bondi

Tom's famous hot wings are half price on Wednesdays, so happy hump day, everyone.

Order the Dirty Bird or the Really-Fucking-Great-Fried-Chicken (yes, that is a legit thing on the menu) and there's no way you'll be leaving disappointed.

4. Salty Rooster, Manly and Narrabeen

This chicken is totally ~Northern Beaches famous~ for very good reason.


5. Hartsyard, Newtown

Chicken skin scratchings. That is literally all the convincing you should need to go to Hartsyard. Because, COME ON.

Home of the greatest chicken kebab anyone has ever enjoyed, El Jannah may ruin a lot of rolls for you, but it's definitely worth it.

Peri peri chicken livers night not be for everyone, but if they're for you, you've got to try these ones.

15. The Burger Shed, Mosman

Another one for chicken burger fans, The Burger Shed has many items on its menu, but you'd be silly to go past anything with that fine breast fillet.

16. Mamak, Chinatown and Chatswood

Mamak should be a household name for anyone who takes their chicken seriously. This Malaysian restaurant really does raise the bar.


18. Ms G's, Potts Point / Via Facebook: Ms.GsRestaurant

Every Tuesday you can grab a bucket of Ms G's chicken for $30. The best thing about this bucket is the five flavours of chicken available: hot and sour, salt and pepper, lemongrass ginger and shallot, honey mustard and sambal.

Everyone's obsessed with the new American-style Surly's, and their fried chicken has got to be at least 60% of the reason.
