For the extreme hunger, make sure your trackers are properly set for the amount of exercise you do so that you know for sure how many calories you can consume. Try nutrient dence foods like green leafy veggies for snacks. I know broccoli (raw or roasted) can really help me feel full. Also fibrours fruits like apples and pears often do as well. Make sure you're not avoiding fats and get enough protein.
As for the cravings, can you let yourself have a little chocolate, or will than make you eat the whole bar? I know a lot of people sweat by eating one square of chocolate a day, but I often have a problem stopping at one square. For the fried chicken, will a substitute work? You can make your own. I've seen kits (I think by Kraft) in the case next to the cheese that is breading for chicken that isn't super calorie laden. You could divide it into servings and make one serving and bake it. You could also create your own with bread crumbs or panko and bake in the oven. Or fry on the stove top in light oil. Just be mindful of portion sizes, use only the breast (try making it with skinless breasts, too) and add a load of veggies on the side.
