People fighting and stabbing and shooting and dying over a chicken sandwich...Great work, planet earth.

So here's the safe and friendly alternative to catching a bullet over a $3 sandwich, MAKE YOUR OWN POPEYE'S CHICKEN SANDWICH.

From Coop Can Cook here is a recipe for spicy chicken sandwich. It's going to be cold this weekend, so hit the grocery store and do this CLICK HERE FOR RECIPE.

Prep time will run you about 4 hours, but it will be worth it...and you won't get stabbed.

I've tried some of these "make your own" recipes before. They do actually work, and again you won't get hurt.
