I even made the milk buns! I also have a spare power cooker so will have black garlic in 4-8 weeks and will do this again. I thought it was great, and spicy! Fiance dredged his chicken in more hot sauce xD I'm too weak compared to him. We dont eat fast food or Popeyes so we've never had it from them, but as good as this is even knowing its better than the fast food option, i'm not sure why people were going literal crazy for it...
