Praline Chicken Found Only At Southern Oaks Plantation

If there is one thing we are known for here at Southern Oaks Plantation, other than the gorgeous oak tree, sprawling grounds, and impeccable customer service.. its THE FOOD! And there is one menu item that is a favorite among couples, their guests, and our vendors – its the praline chicken!

We hear it again and again, when some of our favorite photographers are back shooting a wedding, they always tell us “I’ve been looking forward to this praline chicken since this couple booked me!” What could be more exciting than creating a menu item loved by our industry peers? Although, our couples seem to love it just as much! Here are a few words from a recent bride: “The food was also AMAZING!!!! The venue staff sent Cody and I a to-go box of our favorite items on the menu.  When we got to our hotel room that night, before we went to bed, we were both so pumped about digging into that to-go box! Cody could NOT stop talking about Southern Oaks Plantation’s praline chicken…. it is TO DIE FOR!!” Well, if that doesn’t convince you its the  best, we don’t know what will!

Owner and lead chef, Sue Asaro, takes great pride in creating unique and innovative menu items to continue to impress our couples. And her talent knows no bounds! The praline chicken may be a popular item, but the recipe is staying safe here at Southern Oaks! That means, to give it a try – you must attend a wedding here with us! Your taste buds will thank you!
