Los Pollos Hermanos Pop-Up Probably Won’t Sell You Meth—or Chicken

East-coast Breaking Bad fans will finally get a chance to check out Gus Fring’s sinister-yet-mundane Albuquerque fast-food chain, Los Pollos Hermanos. Yep, ‘The Chicken Brothers’ are coming to Manhattan on April 9 and 10, but they’re not likely to bring any of their famous chicken. 

The infamous fictional restaurant is known for the tagline “Where something delicious is always cooking,” (get it, because they cook amazing chicken, but also meth), yet will probably only be serving one food item at the pop-up. That’s right, curly fries.

Take a Delicious Hit of This Weed-Infused Chicken Cacciatore

We can’t all be so lucky to learn classic Italian cooking at the elbow of our grandmother. And even fewer of us have the opportunity to cook with Aurora Leveroni, a.k.a. Nonna Marijuana, the charming 91-year-old home cook who’s mastered the art of weed-infused comfort food.

Our dream grandma schooled Bong Appetit host Matt Zimbric with this hearty chicken cacciatore recipe, loaded with life’s simplest pleasures: onions, mushrooms, olives, wine, and weed.

Once you’ve got your weed butter infused, it’s just a matter of browning the chicken, then giving the rest of the ingredients a quick toss in the same pan.
