Just look at that delicious ball of heaven. The recently opened BAES Chicken on SW Ash Street and SW 3rd Avenue is doing things simple in Portland, but with one very particular point of pride: only using free-range chickens.

The joint offers up all kinds of crunchy fowl meals that include their extremely popular Fried Chicken Sandwiches served up on a bun with aioli and pickles like your ma used to make.

Chicken by the piece and piece meals are available on the lunch and dinner menus, featuring split-breasts, wings, and thighs.

For those with an appetite, you can scale things up to a five-piece meal, a half-bird, or even a full-bird (with sides to feed four). If you’re lucky enough to be at BAES Chicken on a weekend, you’ll also find Chicken & Waffles on the menu, a true Southern brunch classic.

WAIT! There’s more? Yes, dear fair-weathered fry fiend, there is. You see, while BAES Chicken could easily rest on their considerably notable fried chicken alone, they don’t just stop there. Taking things up a notch are their fries.
