How many times have you sat at home thinking, "My life would be so much better if only I could munch on some awesome fried chicken without having to get off the couch?" If you're us, that happens pretty much every day. Now you can, as some of Chicago's best fried chicken is coming straight to your doorstep.

Honey Butter Fried Chicken started delivery quietly a few weeks ago, but it was still in the testing phase. As of Wednesday, it's official. Using Caviar (a delivery service), you can order delicious fried chicken, slathered with sweet butter, every Wednesday through Sunday. The entire menu is available online, including chicken, sandwiches, sides (oh god, pimento mac and cheese) and desserts. You can even order a HBFC beer koozie.

Prices are the same as in the restaurant, though Caviar does charge a fee. We tested out the service, and it came fast, hot and delicious—turns out fried chicken is ideal delivery food, as the breaded casing keeps everything warm. Watch out, though, you can only tip with cash.

Delivery hours run from 11 a.m. to 8:30 p.m. on Sunday, Wednesday and Thursday, and from 11 a.m. to 9:30 p.m on Friday and Saturday.
