From an entire golden fried chicken to a dinner for one, Publix's fried chicken is an affordable lifesaver for most people who want fried chicken on the go. The popular supermarket chain also offers its tenders in a sub that's easily shareable. Having one of these bad boys delivered might be just what's needed to put a smile back on your quarantine partner's face ($6.85).
