Grade A bantam action: The best fried chicken in Manchester

1 month ago

The humble high street chicken shop has never been so popular as it is right now. Such is the power of social media that it’s now considered fairly normal to queue for hours for a chicken burger in a polystyrene box. But hype aside, where are the best places for fried chicken in Manchester?

Rise above the internet frenzy because Confidential Guides have ‘pecked’ our favourite poultry purveyors so you can be sure of some Grade A chicken action.

Now there’s no need to wing it with this selection of straight-up classic fried chicken, Korean chicken, and Caribbean specialities. There’s a mix of established chicken shops, street food icons and restaurants in our list – and they all rule the roost.

  • Backyard burger, Bunny Jackson's, Manchester
    Manchester City Centre

    Bunny Jackson’s


    Bunny Jackson’s touts itself as a dive bar and, while there is indeed ‘cold beer, frozen margaritas and a lot of whisky’, you can still line your stomachs as burgers, bar snacks and BJ’s wings are served every day from noon until nine.

    Chicken Run is a bit of an institution in Moss Side. It’s been there for years, so certainly isn’t a new viral chicken shop hit, but nevertheless you’ll still have to queue on a rainy Wednesday lunchtime.

  • yard and coop fried chicken and chips NQ
    Northern Quarter

    Yard & Coop Manchester


    We’d rather see a restaurant that does one thing well than one that does a wide variety of dishes to the same average standard. Yard & Coop Manchester is firmly in the former category. It serves buttermilk fried chicken and that’s about it, unless you’re a veggie in which case you can have halloumi instead.
