A fantastic restaurant. Their meals are great. I usually get chicken and a few sides. So tender and juicy. Also brought home a chicken pot pie. it was amazing too. Highly recommend it.

This was my first time eating at the Chicken Connection. I had heard about it through friends and the Phantom Gourmet. I ordered the chicken finger meal with a choice of two sides. The two sides I got where the mashed potatoes and the mac and cheese (which my husband wanted). The mac and cheese was awful. My husband described... More

We do take out from here whenever we don't feel like cooking. The chicken is great but so are the sides. Caution Cheese Macaroni is addictive. The chicken fingers or individual pieces are excellent. Kicks KFC's Butt. Two locations with the same awesome food. The original location on Broadway in Haverhill is great. The new location in Plaistow is just... More

We pick up here often when visiting the in-laws in Haverhill. It's everything chicken and more. Not a fancy looking place but don't let that bother you. The only caveat is the parking lot is at a heavily traveled intersection and it can be a bit dicey to get back out of the lot. I am rather surprised to see... More

If it was not for the good sides (mac and cheese and squash) my rating would be poor. The fried chicken had no tasty battered skin and overall was extremely dry. The 1 piece chicken plate is $6.89 and for an extra dollar they add a tiny dried out drumstick. I will stick with Popeye's and KFC.

After hearing people rant and rave about how good Chicken Connection was we decided to try it. I placed our order to go. The employee who took our order was just plain rude. He could of cared less about service. Two orders of chicken fingers and fries with one side corn and one side carrots. I waited for 20 minutes... More

The Sides were almost warm after sitting all day and it's a day latter and still trying to get the bad mash-potato flavor out of my mouth. The baked potato fries were badly seasoned and almost warm rice pilaf was not eatable. The chicken was bland and some pieces were over cooked. It's the first time I have been glade... More

This place is great! It's one of my go to places when I don't feel like cooking.The fried chicken is delicious--I always order more than I can eat in one sitting so I have leftovers--and there are at least ten sides from which you can choose two. I often get the mac and cheese and the squash. A roll comes... More
