When it comes to chicken sandwiches, you already know Popeyes is the one. Imagine making a fried chicken sandwich so good that it causes a war amongst the competition, with the majority still trying to figure out how to catch up. So when Popeyes makes an announcement about another chicken sandwich to add to their vaunted lineup, we’re all here for the news.

Enter Popeyes’ latest, the Buffalo Ranch Chicken Sandwich, an excellent newcomer that will have fans hyped for its creamy, buttery Buffalo Ranch sauce that gives an extra jolt of sizzle from cayenne and paprika. The sandwich starts with a juicy chicken breast filet that’s marinated in Popeyes seasonings, hand breaded and dipped in their buttermilk batter and cooked up golden brown. This delicious scenario sits cozy in between buttery toasted brioche buns and is complemented with crisp pickle slices and Popeyes’ new Buffalo Ranch spread.

Buffalo sauce lovers can expect less mess and all bless, as this sandwich form makes sure things don’t get lost in the sauce — and pile of napkins. Wash it all down with an ice-cold Dr Pepper and prepare yourself for an ‘aren’t you glad you did that?’ moment.

Panera Jumps Into the Chicken Sandwich Wars With Two Healthier Options

Are the Chicken Sandwich Wars still raging? Though far from the fervor where at its height, fast food giants volleyed with their own fowl entrants, now’s as good as any time to have more brands get in the mix. Take Panera for example, who has just released two new chicken sandwich options, both of which are not breaded or fried.

Panera’s take on the chicken sandwich will be marinated and seasoned chicken breast in both regular and spicy varieties, with both nestled in between brioche buns.

The regular option features aioli, parmesan crisps, and greens on a brioche bun, while the spicy take has aioli, pickle chips, and spicy Buffalo sauce.

This Black Truffle Chili Crisp Fried Chicken Sandwich is Your Sign to Treat Yourself

The lineup of fried chicken sandwiches is a lengthy list of familiar faces that take in some form of a Nashville Hot or the next challenger to the Popeyes throne. But surprisingly enough, there hasn’t been an entrant in the mix that utilizes chili crisp oil.

Uncool in West Hollywood, California saw that void and created a Black Truffle Chili Crisp Fried Chicken Sandwich.

Chili crisp oil’s popularity has surged within recent years, as more and more folks become fans of the fiery crunch that the spicy Chinese condiment offers. That textural element is what sets it apart from other spicy sauces, especially within the boom that hot sauces, and frankly any food that packs heat, has reached in the past few years.

Uncool’s Black Truffle Chili Crisp Fried Chicken Sandwich incorporates the brightness of Yuzu citrus to add dimension to their chili crisp oil, allowing for the layers of flavor to open up to the assertiveness of the black truffle.

Truly this is a chicken sandwich that stands out in a crowded room and bolsters an already solid menu from Uncool that also features some of Los Angeles’ most unique chicken wing selection.

Panera is debuting two new test items with the Classic Chicken Sandwich with Aioli and Spicy Buffalo Chicken with Aioli. These two sandwiches are a part of Panera’s Chef’s Chicken Sandwiches, with one of them containing a rarely seen ingredient in fast food sandwiches: anchovies.

The Classic Chicken Sandwich with Aioli features the anchovies within the garlic aioli spread. Sadly, for anchovy lovers, this is the most the fishy condiment gets incorporated in the sandwich. As Foodbeast and anchovy lover, Peter Pham, pointed out, “If you can’t see it, it’s not enough anchovies.”
