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!
