Fried chicken is such a tasty meal, and there's a brand-new chicken spot coming to New Jersey that has my taste buds excited.

New Jersey is home to some great fried chicken restaurants.

This may be strange, but one of my favorite places to get fried chicken from is Acme, that may be because that's where my dad likes to get fried chicken so I've had it quite a bit.

Outside of Acme though, there are a ton of places around New Jersey for fried chicken.

You have Chegg, Cluck-U Chicken, and Chicken-N-More all right around Ocean County for your enjoyment.

If you're feeling really adventurous it's always fun to make your own fried chicken! Back when I had room for a smoker I'd make smoked fried chicken which was delicious.

However, if you want to try something new, a celebrity-backed chicken restaurant is opening its first New Jersey location very soon.

What New Fried Chicken Chain Is Coming To New Jersey?

It's a spot that's known for its hot, Nashville-style chicken and is relatively new in the world of fried chicken.

This franchise got its start in 2017, and thanks to celebrity investors such as Michael Strahan, Samuel L. Jackson, and Tom Werner (owner of the Red Sox) it quickly grew.

NJ.com reports that Dave's Hot Chicken will open its first New Jersey location in Wayne on December 9th on 57 Route 23.

This will be the first of 14 New Jersey locations Dave's Hot Chicken plans on opening, with other spots set to open in Bergen, Essex, Hudson, Passaic, and Union counties according to NJ.com.

And just because it's Dave's Hot Chicken, doesn't mean they don't sell chicken for every pallet.

The menu at Dave's has non-spicy chicken as well as fries, slaw, and mac and cheese!
