The Original Chicken of the Keys, Dion’s Quik Chik, is the only fried chicken that can boast a rich and decades-long history rooted in both family and the Florida Keys. A Dion family recipe, created and passed down from generation to generation, our Quik Chik was first shared with the community in the 1980s by Larry & Flo Dion. The recipe was kept a family secret until 2016 when the Dion's felt they could finally entrust their secret to Steve & Linda Uphoff of Uppy’s Convenient Stores. Using a top-secret blend of regional spices and fresh local chicken, Dion’s Quik Chik recipe is still kept under lock and key to this day. Stop by one of our locations to taste for yourself why Quik Chik is the Chicken of the Keys for over 30 years.
