Today we’re rounding up a list of where to find a few kinds of chicken dishes, all around $10 a meal.
Order up chicken Jamaican patties, available in regular or spicy, at Lloyd’s Patty Plus. On the weekend they sell Jerk Chicken in generous portions, priced affordably by the pound, or in combo with rice; add some patties to your order, grab a friend, and have an island-inspired feast.

Chicken, chicken, chicken…all of the chicken. Or should we say “Olive” the chicken? Available in halves, whole, or boneless, with a variety of styles and sauces, you can stay on the “small” side of the ordering or grab one of their single combos and get your fill of spicy, crispy Asian-style fried chicken.
Address: 1324-10th Avenue SW
This slice joint is a bit of a cult favourite in Calgary thanks to its specialty offerings, including a Chicken Tandoori Pizza. Slices come out hot, albeit a little slowly if its crowded, but if you need something greasy to soak up a night of fun, this is a great spot.
Address: 205 12 Avenue SW
If fried chicken is what you want, then fried chicken is what you shall receive. This longstanding eatery (family-owned and operated since 1958) offers fast, fresh, and delicious fried chicken. Purchase by the piece or as a combo–think four pieces of fried chicken, fries, and two corn fritters, for $9.20.

True, this isn’t a chicken-centric spot. It’s actually a kickass Italian sandwich shop and deli. But they’ve got a couple of Chicken Parm sammies that are not only cheap but also hit the spot when you want something fast, filling, and affordable.
