Restaurant admits serving Popeyes Chicken, charges $13

(CNN) -

If you like Popeyes Chicken, then you'll love one restaurant's recipe.

It's the exact same, and they're charging more.

Sweet Dixie Kitchen in California got a bad review on Yelp. A customer called the restaurant out, saying he saw employees carrying Popeyes boxes into the kitchen.

The owner says she never made it a secret. It's used in two of her chicken recipes. Both recipes cost $13.

"My kitchen is not set up for frying," said Kimberly Sanchez, the owner. "We're an old building. I don't actually have a proper kitchen back there."

She says she reached out to Popeyes for approval to officially add them to her menu and hasn't heard back.

"We didn't do anything wrong," she said. "I did something I thought was the best product I could bring in anywhere."
