‘Best I Ever Ate’? Broasted Chicken at the Fleetwood in Springfield, IL
Springfield, Illinois. Out on the northeast side of town, along Dirksen Parkway, was the Fleetwood Restaurant. It's far from fancy, but as with most of these kind of places, it's got good food. And the Fleetwood's specialty is "broasted" chicken. It's moist, not greasy, seasoned just right. Darn near perfect; even the chicken breasts. So good, I still remember it 40 years later.
