St-Hubert just added fried chicken to their menu, and it's already a big hit. You can order it to go, have it delivered or eat it in dining rooms — but don't take too long picking a side dish, because this crispy goodness is available only for a limited time.
The restaurant chain has been Quebecers' favourite spot for quality chicken since 1951, so this new take on a classic dish really makes sense. It might even become your go-to for sports night or any time you're craving comfort food.
Each meal includes four pieces of fried chicken, a honey and piri-piri sauce and a side of your choice — and that's on top of the classic coleslaw, bread and BBQ sauce.
In case you were wondering, St-Hubert's fried chicken isn't the same as their crispy chicken breast fillets and rotisserie chicken. It's a completely new menu item and is a mix of chicken drumsticks, thighs and wings.
To be honest, I'm not a big fan of fried chicken. I usually avoid ordering it, and I was a little apprehensive to try it out.
So when I took my first bite, I was surprised by how good it was. The fried chicken tasted just as tender and juicy as St-Hubert's classic chicken but covered in a crispy, tasty batter.
But my favourite part was the sauce. The combination of piri-piri sauce and honey was the perfect balance of sweet and spicy.
When I stopped by my local rotisserie, I even found out that the piri-piri sauce is an authentic Portuguese recipe from the Demelo family, who lives in Quebec. St-Hubert found them completely by chance!
The fried chicken and sauce go perfectly together. The sauce is delicious without overwhelming the flavour of the chicken. Plus there's just the right amount of food: someone with a big appetite will feel satisfied with the portions, and someone who isn't a big eater will have leftovers.
This new dish is a real game-changer for lovers of fried chicken. It's nothing like typical finger food that leaves your hands all greasy.
If spring makes you want to just get out and experience new things, then stop by St-Hubert and try their new fried chicken. And who knows? If it's really popular, it might even stay on the menu for good!
