Spicy Big Mary Sandwich from Mary Brown's Chicken

Happy Sunday! My husband is back from his retreat, and to celebrate his return (and perhaps my slight chicken obsession!), I decided to order a finger-lickin feast from Mary Brown's Chicken.

Since the beginning of the year, I've embarked on a delicious journey through the world of fried chicken. From Church's and Popeyes to karaage and Taiwanese-style delights, I've savoured the unique flavours and textures each offer. Today, Mary Brown's was on the menu!

We opted for the 18-piece Signature Chicken, a fiery introduction to the Mary Brown's experience. And let me tell you, they weren't kidding about the spice! This chicken packed a serious punch, leaving a pleasant tingle in the taste buds. The crispy golden exterior gave way to juicy, flavorful chicken within. It was definitely hotter than anything I'd encountered at the major American fried chicken chains.

I chose the classic comfort of the Big Mary Sandwich for my husband. This beauty boasted a juicy chicken breast, perfectly cooked and nestled between soft sesame seed buns. Mayo and lettuce added a touch of freshness, making it a satisfying and familiar favourite.

But for me, the Spicy Big Mary Sandwich was the star of the show. Mirroring the classic Big Mary, it featured a succulent chicken breast with the added kick of hot cayenne pepper. The result? An explosion of flavour that had my taste buds doing a happy dance. The creamy, spicy mayo and tangy pickles cut through the richness of the chicken perfectly, creating a symphony of textures and tastes in every bite.

And no Mary Brown's experience is complete without their famous taters. These crispy, golden potato wedges were the perfect sidekick to the juicy chicken, offering a delightful textural contrast and a touch of salty goodness.

From the fiery kick of the 18-piece Signature Chicken to the delightful balance of the Spicy Big Mary Sandwich, our Mary Brown's feast celebrated all things chicken. It was the perfect way to welcome my husband back and indulge in my current culinary fascination.
