Best Vegetarian “Chicken” Nugget: Galactic Fried Chicken

Former food truck Galactic Fried Chicken opened a brick-and-mortar in Dayton, Kentucky in early 2020. The restaurant serves fried chicken, chicken tenders and sandwiches, along with a variety of sides ranging from mac and cheese to deviled eggs. They also offer vegetarian fried jackfruit nuggets. And these ain’t your average tendies. The eatery uses rice flour in their gluten-free batter which results in a crispy, crunchy, salty, savory and succulent creation. galacticfriedchicken.com.
