Fried chicken is a side dish of chicken that is sprinkled with flour and egg juice, seasoned, and fried in oil.

The pioneer of convenience store chicken is FamilyMart, which originated in 2006 when it launched boneless chicken. The classic Famichicki has already sold 1 billion pieces. After that, other companies also started selling the chicken, and each one has become a popular hot snack meal with its own individuality.

Precautions when eating Fried chicken at CVS

Not Gluten-free, but low Gluten

The only wheat ingredient used in the fried chicken is the flour in the batter. However, sometimes seasonings contains wheat ingredients. Items that are not packed in a container are not obliged to label the raw materials, so the actual situation is unknown. Raw materials are the company secrets. Even if it contains gluten, the amount is small, so if you are on a gluten-free diet other than celiac disease, you can eat it.


Wheat flour is the only ingredient of high FODMAPs, and only a small amount is used in each, so you can think of dishes as low FODMAPs.


Sometimes, cooking liquor was used to season the chicken before it is fried. Alcohol evaporated during cooking, but be careful if you care about alcohol.

Japanese writer’s comment for Fried chicken at CVS

It’s so juicy that the gravy and oil will drip when you bite it. It’s easy, delicious and highly recommended for snacks, but it’s addictive. My friend ate too much fried chicken and gained 3 kg. Please be careful not to eat too much during your stay.

You can easily find the convenience stores in Japan, basically open 24 hours a day, and are rarely out of stock.

You can always get what you want to eat. I often go out to buy something else and see a hot snack case during payment and add it.

If you are fascinated by chicken, be careful when you go to the cashier. You can also get alcoholic beverages which goes well with the fried chicken at a convenience store.
