Episode 2: “Chick-fil-GAY” with Marti Gould Cummings (12g Carbs)

Posted on

Hi again kids and queens!

As you all know, Chik-fil-A came out (for lack of a better term) publicly of late with their homophobic policies and discriminatory stances on gay marriage, equal rights and their general distaste for gay people altogether.

Cities like Boston and Philly are being awesome and working towards preventing the franchise to expand further into their regions. Gays are pissed. And true winners like Sarah Palin are actually posing for pictures at the chain with their families to show their support of intolerance and hate.

Yet what this all boils down to is that hearing Chik-fil-A everywhere is making everyone  hungry for some fried chicken!

So what to do? Introducing my very own, “Chik-fil-GAY”! With 12 grams of carbs, and 0 grams of homophobia. We’re cooking with LOVE in the Kiki Kitchen, never with hate.

I’m also so happy that special guest Marti Gould Cummings stopped by to dish about her hilariously pissed off tweets and how she really feels about Chik-fil-A. But the real question is, how does she feel about my low-carb fried chicken alternative?!

Try this at home and let me know what you think kids! Also remember that sauce you put on this will really make a difference in the sugar and carbs.  Mayo and mustard – not so bad. BBQ sauce and honey – you’re addin carbs hunty!!!
