Turn up the heat on the fast food chicken wars. Popeyes’ Louisiana Kitchen is taking aim at Chick-fil-a with the launch of a new Popeyes’ chicken sandwich.
You can choose between mayo and spicy Cajun sauce for the fried chicken filet with pickles. This hot, crispy sammich could be one of the biggest launches in the restaurant’s existence.
The backstory to the chicken sandwich launch comes from a restaurant in Southern California. Apparently an eatery in Long Beach had been buying Popeyes’ chicken and then serving it to their customers. Check this video out from Popeye’s YouTube channel.
Lines at local Popeyes’ drive-thru windows have reportedly long and the chicken sandwich is in high demand. The sandwich is causing great debate among chicken connoisseurs on social media — which is better, Popeyes’ newest menu addition or the classic Chick-fil-A chicken sandwich? You’ll have to choose for yourself!
