It seems Sriracha is ready for a major comeback. The iconic spicy red sauce has been featured in quite a few dishes and food trends over the years, yet has waned some as of late. However, Wendy’s newest menu item triples down on the chili garlic sauce by incorporating it three different times in one sandwich.
The Spicy Sriracha Chicken Sandwich boasts a spicy chicken filet, Sriracha Jack Cheese, a dollop of Sriracha aioli, thick-cut Applewood Smoked bacon, and is served on a Sriracha infused bun.
Honestly, it sounds like one spicy sandwich.
New Bacon Sriracha Fries will also be added to the menu for a limited time. These natural-cut sea salt potato pieces are topped with creamy Sriracha aioli, bacon, and a cheddar cheese sauce. Looks like the chain went full sriracha on this one.
Expect to see an official announcement from Wendy’s early next week, though you can find the new items now at participating Wendy’s locations.
