The fast-food chain did not release any information on the new sandwich, Popeyes’ new Blackened Chicken Sandwich, but it appears to only be available in some states.
Customers can choose for the sandwich to come as classic or spicy, according to Chew Boom, a food blog site that was the first to report on the new offering.
The Blackened Chicken Sandwich is similar to the chain’s Blackened Chicken Tenders. It comes as a non-breaded chicken breast slathered in seasoning and served with mayonnaise and pickles on a bun.
Will you be trying this when it hits your region?
SideNote: Since the pandemic started, the demand for chicken sandwiches has reached an all-time high. Other restaurants have followed in Popeyes lead as Chick-fil-a, Taco Bell, and McDonald’s have rushed to release new sandwiches as well as KFC in attempts to compete in the sandwich wars!
