Urban Paleo Forager: Chicken Maison

By Marcus | In Nutrition | on October 21, 2010

While I had known about Chicken Maison for a couple years now, they were filed in my mind as little more than a Chicken Dijon clone. I mean they had good rotisserie chicken but were fully interchangeable with Chicken D in every regard. That all changed when Justin aka AM brought a tray of their “spicy” chicken to the farewell shindig for Becky and Drenna over at Brianna’s house. It turns out that they added a couple new twists to their chicken since I last visited — a spicy lemon-garlic sauce and a lemon-basil sauce. Either are available as a slight upcharge to the regular chicken prices.

Pictured above is a 1/4 chicken with the spicy sauce and double sides of steamed veggies covered with tahini sauce. As you can see, they thankfully don’t skimp on the vegetables! Just ask for no pita bread and sub tahini for the garlic sauce. Now on to the spicy sauce. I’m going to have to say it gives the MJ sauce from Melting Pot a run for the money, if not trumping it entirely. It’s a tangy, spicy mix of garlic, lemon, vinegar, peppers and other flavors I couldn’t quite identify clearly. I’d definitely want to try their lemon basil sauce in the future to see how it pans out. Beware though, there is a LOT of garlic in the spicy sauce, so don’t choose this if you’re going to be meeting anyone you want to make a good impression on!

    I’ve been eating Justin’s leftover chicken all week and this stuff is seriously legit.

    Poor CD got moved to number 3 on the rotisserie chicken list.

      Yeah, it’s looking like CM, MP, then CD. Don’t forget El Pollo Inka with that green sauce. Marcuspedia, what’s in the green sauce??

    Jalepeno, Mayo, Cilantro, Lettuce, and Lime.

    Not the traditional way of making it, but at least they don’t include bread.

    Boo Mayo! :(

    I am salivating right now, maybe it’s because I haven’t had breakfast yet, but CM sounds good. Think I’ll drive down the hill to go get some right now.

      FYI, Marcuspedia 2.0 is really Annapedia 1.0 so take that into consideration.

        What will it take for Annapedia to bring in samples?

        @Becky, mayo is ok provided the mayo is made with a good oil. Store bought mayo, however, is often made with canola, vegetable, or other such bad oil. Hence, if Annapedia brings in homemade, we’re good.

    @Becky – I think Mayo is ok if it’s home made. You can make tasty, Paleo friendly Mayo. But the store bought stuff normally has sugar (or some type of sugar) and canola oil (or soybean oil). Here is a link to a recipe that I’ve been meaning to try…

    How dare you reveal my pen name!!

    If I make samples it will be of the real stuff… not the cheap impersonation that uses mayo!

    I was so upset about the El Pollo Inka Aji sauce containing mayo last night that we went to Playa Blanca (another Peruvian place on Main St) and inquired. The waiter insisted that theirs does not and they are very traditional (even going far enough to refer to El Pollo Inca as the McDonalds of Peruvian). All of the flavors there are much cleaner and the meat is of very high quality.

    I had the halibut ceviche. Best ceviche I’ve tried and a huge portion for $13.
