Red Light Chicken is a tiny Lincoln Park takeout spot with only three things on the menu (chicken sandwiches, nuggets, and fries) and no place to sit. But they do have a small outdoor standing table with heat lamps. The fried chicken sandwich is why we come here. It’s satisfyingly crispy, gets some spiciness and sweetness from their hot honey sauce, and comes with a fluffy potato bun that soaks up the juices. Grab some truffle fries too.
