Popeyes launching new Blackened Chicken Sandwich in select markets, report says

Remember the chicken sandwich wars? Well, Popeyes might be plotting a return to the battlefield.

Apparently, Popeyes is launching a new Blackened Chicken Sandwich at participating locations, Chew Boom reports.

The fast-food chain’s new chicken sandwich offers a twist on its Blackened Tenders introduced in the New Orleans market several years ago.

Similar to Popeyes’ popular fried chicken sandwich, the new blackened chicken sandwich comes in a classic and spicy version. The sandwich swaps out the fried for a non-battered chicken fillet fried with a blend of blackened seasoning, the website said.

The blackened chicken comes sandwiched between a toasted brioche bun with pickles and mayo.

So far, there’s no word on whether Popeyes is only testing the item in select locations or preparing for a national rollout. The Popeyes website lists the chicken sandwich as a menu item available as part of a combo or a la carte, but it’s not every location.

Here are some East Texas locations where you can try it:

Longview: 409 E. Marshall Avenue
Longview: 2110 Gilmer Road
Lufkin: 1106 S Timberland Drive
Tyler: 2316 E 5Th St.
