There’s no doubt that the Popeyes fried chicken sandwich was the fast food phenomenon of 2019, or that Chick-fil-A’s sandwich is still its flagship item.
But, McDonald’s is trying yet again to lure customers with its late entry in the fried chicken sandwich wars.
On Monday, McDonald’s began testing the Crispy Chicken Sandwich in Houston and Knoxville.
The sandwich has a fried chicken filet served on a potato roll, topped with butter and pickles. There’s also a deluxe version with tomatoes, lettuce and mayo.
(You might remember that Taco Bell also picked Houston as a place where it is testing Crispy Tortilla Chicken.)
McDonald’s gave a hit of its plans Sunday on social media. The test is set to run through January 26.
