Educate Yourself! The FEISTY Difference in Chicken

At Feisty Chicken & Grill, we take pride in serving fresh 100% chicken.

We shout it everywhere – on our posters, menu, website, advertising – that we serve only fresh 100% pure chicken that has never been processed, frozen or bleached – a far contrast to what you may be eating at other fast food chains.

So what is the Feisty Difference, and what does that mean for you, the consumer? 

Before we get to that, you should see how other fast food chains get their chickens from their kitchens, to your tray!  Some fast food restaurants serve mechanically separated chicken. You know, those chicken nuggets and chicken patties (also known as a chicken sandwich at most fast food places) you’ve been eating.

You might want to learn about what you are putting into your mouth – or your kid’s mouths.  Get educated, ask the manager, “Is this chicken fresh and is it 100% chicken breast”? If the response is no, make a run for the nearest exit!

Mechanically separated chicken is where they take the entire chicken – eyes, guts, bones and all – smash it and put it through a sieve-like grinder as seen in the photo above.

It comes out looking like a pinkish paste – almost like a strawberry yogurt.

The chicken is loaded with bacteria, requiring it to be soaked in ammonia, antibiotics and artificial flavorings are added.  Because of the pinkish tinge, the product also is injected with artificial coloring.

By the time this product is served to you in the form of a nugget or patty, it looks good enough to eat so buyer, beware! Do your own research and learn more.

Lucky for you there is Feisty Chicken & Grill.

When you order any chicken meal at Feisty Chicken & Grill you have peace of mind knowing that what you see IS what you get. Our chicken is fresh, 100% fire-grilled on the bone, or grilled 100% chicken breast in our sandwiches. Even our Big Bites – our version of a “nugget” come from fresh, 100% white meat chicken breasts.

Now that you’re educated on the Feisty Difference, you understand that serving 100% vs. processed chicken may cost a few cents more, but now you appreciate why.

So next time you crave some chicken, will you make a healthier choice and choose Feisty Chicken & Grill?

Fire-Grilled 6 Pack Of Feisty Legs, Great For On The Go!

Feisty Chicken & Grill, well just wouldn’t be Feisty without sharing a bit of fun trivia about “National Dance Like A Chicken Day!”

Each month there are several wacky holidays that receive honorable mention and celebration on the calendar.

Have you heard of these? National Escargot Day, No Socks Day, Visit Your Relatives Day are just a few being celebrated this month. But the one that caught our eye is May 14th – Dance Like a Chicken Day!

According to “legend”, The Chicken Dance song originated in Switzerland composed by accordion player, Thomas Werner.  It was originally called “Der Ententanz” – the Duck Dance.  Its popularity took over, especially at wedding receptions and before long the Duck Dance became The Chicken Dance and the variations are popularly featured on YouTube such as this funny version.

On Tuesday, May 14th, 2013, all three Feisty Chicken & Grill locations – Rancho Cucamonga, Ontario and Glendora will be giving away 1 FREE Feisty Leg & Signature Sauce with any purchase to celebrate this Feisty FUN day!

If you’re game, come on in and show us your impression of the dance too! Bring your friends, co-workers, boss, teacher, it will be a hoot to see you on May 14th. 

If you have a funny Chicken Dance to share, visit our website and let us know!

What Feisty Fantastic Things Will You Do On Earth Day?

Keep Walkin' Feisty Chicken

Monday, April 22nd is rolling around and we pause to take time to think of ways we can make our planet a better place to live, (eat!) work and play.

A massive oil spill off the coast of Santa Barbara, water pollution and destruction of wildlife, rallied support for creating a day to raise public awareness…As a result, Earth Day spawned the Clean Air, Clean Water Act and the Endangered Species Act.

Did you know the most common practice of Earth Day celebration is to plant new trees, but what else can we do on Earth Day in our community?

Let us know your ideas!

If you are promoting an Earth Day event, come pin a flyer on our community board located in each Feisty Chicken & Grill, or share it on or tweet at

We want to know, and want to reward you for doing it!

If you participate in any Earth Day project from Saturday, April 20th through Earth Day, Monday, April 22nd we want to say thank you!

Simply print (or save a tree and show us on your phone) this article and show the manager on duty at any Feisty Chicken & Grill – Ontario, Rancho Cucamonga, or Glendora and enjoy a free small cup of Orange Cream Frozen Yogurt* on us! 

Below are simple things anyone can do.

  • Slow the Flow.  Don’t leave water running unnecessarily.  Repair leaky pipes and hot water resources.
  • Green Your Machine. Over 700 gallons of gas are wasted annually because tires are not properly inflated or cars haven’t been tuned.  You’ll save money and reduce pollution when you keep your car running “green.”
  • “Cross the Road” – Walk, Hike, Ride a Bike to Feisty.  Making a short trip around town?  Use your feet, not your car.  By walking, biking – or taking public transportation, you reduce your carbon footprint and thereby air pollution.
  • Reduce, Reuse, Re-cycle. Return plastic bags to recycling bins, bring cloth bags to sack your groceries, donate clothing and electronics to charities.

Got more creative ideas? Share them on our social sites.

* Dine-in only, one per customer, not good with any other offer, discount or promotion. Good 4-20-13 thru 4-22-13 only.


Feisty Chicken And Grill – No Assembly Required

When you order food at a restaurant, where you move down the line to select your meal ingredients, do you ever wonder just how fresh that food is?

Oh, sure the metal containers of chopped vegetables and meats are replenished throughout the day as supplies run low.  That’s a comforting thought.

  • How far in advance has that beef or chicken been cooked?
  • Was it freshly grilled or fried?
  • How long did that food spend under a heat lamp? 

I don’t know about you, but I have experienced cubes of meat that were crisp and less tender around the edges – a definite by-product of heat lamp exposure.  Kind of like too long in a tanning bed.

You deserve better.

You shouldn’t settle for pre-cooked meats and toppings that have been sitting ready, sometimes hours before you walk through the door.

The old adage is “Good things are worth waiting for”, and this is certainly the case in being able to walk into a fast food restaurant, order what you want and know that it is then, cooked to order.
