And thankfully for the literal billions of us who love Portuguese chicken, Montreal happens to be literally full of delicious Portuguese chicken restaurants. And although they're all amazing in their own right, a handful really do stand out.
Ma Poule Mouillée
This Plateau spot has a bit of a cult following in Montreal, and for good reason: the food is phenomenal. Portuguese chicken is their obvious specialty, but for some extra variety, try their poutine, with chunks of their delicious chicken and chorizo.
This Montreal Portuguese restaurant is a classic in the city, and a favourite of many Montrealers. And if you've ever been here, then you know exactly why: the food here is above and beyond amazing.
Honestly, there's nothing quite like a delicious, crispy, moist, flavourful chunk of chicken from Portugalia. Saturated with their overly delicious Piri Piri sauce, this spot is sure to please every single time.
Honestly, if you're looking for an incredibly comfortable and welcoming spot to go and eat some delicious and perfectly seasoned Portuguese chicken, look no further. Chez Duval is here to save your whole meal/day/week/life.
I literally love the food at this Villeray restaurant. Although their chicken is a clear standout on their menu, don't let that stop you from branching out and trying the rest of their menu. Everything is good - especially their grilled octopus.
A relatively new spot in downtown Montreal, right near Concordia University, Campo has a super trendy and casual vibe, and some of the best Portuguese chicken you'll legit ever try.
Literally, the chicken here is exactly what dreams are made of. It's perfectly cooked, crispy on the outside and tender on the inside, and dripping with flavour; the best part, though? Every single thing on the menu is exactly as good as the chicken.

Located in Montreal's St. Michel, O Cantinho has some of the tastiest Portuguese chicken I've ever tried. Protip, though? Definitely try their crisp, flavourful chicken, and follow it up with a taste of their incredibly delicious chorizo.
This Villeray Portuguese restaurant will forever be one of my own personal favourites. Their chicken is incredibly tasty and cooked to absolute perfection, and the rest of their menu? Just as awesome. Protip: take their mixed plate, with chicken, pork, chorizo, and more.
Les 3 Marias
Situated in Montreal's West Island, Les Trois Marias seriously knows how to make one awesome Portuguese chicken dish. Their chicken is literally swimming in flavour; and their fries are out of this world, too.
