Everything on THE CHICKEN COOP is made with wholesome ingredients and old-world techniques. We serve crispy CHICKEN TENDERS that have been brined in our secret recipe and then tossed in our special flour and seasoning blend so they are always GLUTEN and DAIRY free. Our FRENCH FRIES contain two ingredients, Kennebec Idaho potatoes and Kosher salt. They are hand cut, brined, blanched and then fried for a crispy outside and a creamy center. We also offer a daily MARKET SALAD with fresh local greens, veggies, nuts and seeds. SAUCES, SIDES and DRESSINGS are all made from scratch with fresh herbs, spices and the best quality ingredients.
