Charles “Chicken Charlie” Boghosian knows what you’re thinking, so go ahead. Say it.
You’re scanning Chicken Charlie’s menu at the Del Mar fair: fried Spam on a stick; fried Twinkies; fried Oreos; fried avocado; batter-coated fried White Castle sliders; and his latest cardio-killer, the Kookie Cookie, two oatmeal raisin cookies smeared with strawberry jam and cream cheese, then wrapped around an Italian-seasoned chicken breast that has been – seeing a pattern here? – fried.
You’re thinking, “He’s crazy.”
Feel free to say it aloud. Charlie won’t mind because Charlie can’t help himself. Watching his mother hollow out zucchinis, he’s inspired. “Mom, why don’t we put a hot dog in there?”
