Chick N Dip Review, Hampshire, IL

Chick N Dip Review HampshireWhat can be better than finding a mom and pop place out in the middle of nowhere?  Not much, in my opinion, and apparently lots of people agree, because when I stopped at this seasonal drive-in, it was jammed.

They specialize in “broasted chicken,” burgers, and frozen dairy treats. “Broasting” is a combination of deep-frying and pressure cooking that was invented in Wisconsin in the 1950s.

They license their cooking method and sell marinaded chicken and other items for “broasting” to over 5000 restaurants in over fifty countries.  Not a traditional franchise, but the company offers the method and equipment for a licensing fee without the payment of ongoing royalties. I first became acquainted with “Broaster Chicken” at my hometown pizza joint, decades ago.

You can dine outside or in a small attached dining room.

I went with the chicken strips and fries, which was five strips and a good amount of fries (which you can also order by the pound!).  The food was VERY HOT, cooked to order, and tasted ‘fresh’ meaning (to me) not a hint of stale oil. The chicken coating was crisp, seasoned, and the chicken moist and flavorful.

The order comes with a ramekin of BBQ sauce, and other dipping sauces are available.  I’ve driven by this place lots of times and never stopped.  My loss.  It won’t happen again!

I’ve hit some other spots nearby that I like, the Spot in Marengo, and I try and get to the Vet’s home for pancake breakfasts in Genoa on occasion.

Chick N Dip is located just south of I-90, about 25 miles east of Rockford, IL and 45 minutes west of Chicago.  (Map below).
