Which of the new chicken sandwiches is best?

Many of the major chains have one or have revamped their existing one to try to keep up with Popeyes, it would seem. The only one I've tried is the McDonalds one, which was... alright.

For those who have tried more, which one(s) are your favorite? I'd make a poll but I don't know all the chains that have recently released new chicken sandwiches, just McDonalds, Popeyes, KFC, Chick-fil-A?

Popeye's is still the best

Popeyes #1

KFC #2

Also tried McDonalds, Chick-fil-A, and Wendy's.

Have heard good things about the BK one but have yet to try it.

Chick-Fil-A is infamous for its on-the-record homophobic behavior. Why would any gay person give them their money? Are people really that unaware or do they just not care? They're Christian homophobes, FFS.

#1 Chick-fil-A

#2 McDonald's

#3 Raising Cane's (not a true chicken sandwich, just two chicken tenders on a bun - but very good)

#4 Popeyes (too big and too bready)

BK, Wendy's and KFC all suck.

I haven't tried Saxby's yet.

We’re still boycotting that shitty chick-fil-a at my house and I filled a complaint with my company that it was offensive to serve at company supplied lunches.

Dan Cathy, owner of Chick Fil A, donated huge amount to the National Christian Charitable Foundation, which seeks to derail an act that is going through Congress. This is a story from June 3, 2021.

[quote] The proposed act, which passed the House of Representatives with a bipartisan majority and is supported by two-thirds of Americans, would protect lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender people from discrimination at a federal level.

Dan Cathy is not an ally:

Those donations included a $1.1 million gift to the Marriage & Family Foundation, a group that promoted so-called traditional marriage and opposed both gay marriage and divorce; $480,000 to the Fellowship of Christian Athletes, an athletic organization that requires applicants to agree to a “sexual purity statement” that condemns LGBTQ people for living “impure lifestyle[s]”; and $1,000 to Exodus International, a group that promotes anti-gay conversion therapy.

I boycotted Chick Fil A for a long time. Then one day my office brought it in and I ate it, because it wasn't my money that paid for it. I can't lie, it's good. Especially those waffle fries.

Here's the thing about Chick Fil A, I have yet to drive by one where there wasn't a line wrapped around the block to get in. Either we've done a bad job of getting the message out that CFA is bad or people just don't care. I remember a few years ago Target was supposed to be bad and I don't think that stuck. And I'm kind of at the point where I just don't care.

I don't really care about Chick-Fil-A, they just are one of the restaurants that has a popular chicken sandwich. If you haven't tried it, fine, but they still exist and yes, some gay people eat there occasionally. The fact that the mere mention if it causes rabid responses (even when I didn't say I ate there at all) is totally ridiculous.

You're also falling into the trap of "I don't like x, so clearly it's awful/greasy/unhealthy/etc." which isn't true and you know it. It's silly to add these subjective things to objective reality (that they had donated to religious orgs that were anti gay) because it diminishes your overall statement and makes you look like a toddler.

We have a Raising Cane's and their chicken is very good but I wouldn't want it on a bun. I had it with their Texas Toast and it really took away from the flavor of the chicken.

The new McDonald's chicken sandwich was kind of tough but the taste of the breading was much better than their previous sandwich. I had CFA a few years ago and it was bland, and my partner had some a couple months ago at a catered work "thank you" dinner and said the same thing. I remember I could taste the pepper in the breading but otherwise it just tasted like flour.

I vastly prefer BK's fries to Wendy's.

Arby's new Crinkle Cut fries are great too (and their curly fries are great too)

Chick-Fil-A's waffle fries are the worst. Okay, well, maybe they're better than Wendy's fries, but with all the baggage why would anyone with a brain, a heart, or a soul actually eat there?

Culvers has great burgers and fries, but I really don't like their chicken sandwiches.

McDonald's has great fries obviously. The Chicken Sandwich is fine but nothing special. Sorta like everything else there save for the fries.

I sorta get the "too much breading" critique of Popeye's... but also sorta don't. There isn't a ton of breading but there is a nice crispy coating. It's very flavorful. It helps keep the chicken moist and tender. It is a VERY big sandwich. OPEN WIDE. But you sure get your money's worth.

The best thing about the BK Spicy chicken sandwich is that the entire filet is dipped in the hot sauce, it's not just smeared on the bun. It's really good, savory, and just spicy enough without being too spicy.

The grilled chicken sandwiches disappeared around here about a year ago, r103. I assumed they would come back when the lockdowns lifted but no such luck. No grilled chicken from fast food places is really cramping my lifestyle!

Pollo Campero has a new chicken sandwich and you can get either grilled or fried. I actually think their grilled tastes better than the fried. It has more slices and the zing of lime.

Popeye's sandwich was great when it was first introduced. The BS that the sandwich "sold out" nationwide was just that. They only planned enough for so long and then come back with a cheaper (for them) version. It's not as big as it used to be, and the breast isn't as thick. I remember an article in maybe Insider that said the calorie count on the menu was reduced.

I wish Gus' had a sandwich. There are no KFCs, Wendy's, or McDonalds near me and Popeye's is a bit of a drive. I won't go to Chik-Fil-A so for me it's Pollo Campero.

The Grilled Chicken sandwiches just didn't sell.

I know I stopped even trying to order them from McDonald's because if I did, it was always old and dried out, because it was cooked an hour ago and nobody else bought one before me. Ugh.

The best chicken sandwich in history was KFC's "Tender Roast" Chicken Sandwich. It's long, long gone now (like, a decade ago?) but my god, it was superior to everything before or since.

I worked at both BK and A&W in the very early 90's. This was right around the time fast food chains were being required to share the nutritional information on their products. I don't think most customers realized this at the time, but BK's grilled chicken had as much fat as their Whoppers. The frozen processed chicken patties were coated with shortening to keep them from drying out as they went through the broiler. Add in the mayo, which they came with by default, and you're right back up there in terms of fat content.

A&W's grilled (well, griddled) chicken sandwiches were actually really good. They were whole, not processed and formed, chicken breasts packed in a mixture of oil, seasonings and spices. Their trick to keeping them incredibly moist and tender was that after cooking them they would go into a heated broth/brine until someone ordered one. They were also served on a whole wheat bun. If you ordered them sans mayo (they offered packets of fat free mayo as well), they really weren't that bad for you.

R114 is tedious an annoying... so much heat for self-respecting LGBT people pointing out that any LGBT person (or ally) that helps fund anti-LGBT persecution around the world is a self-loathing hypocritical piece of shit (this is a basic fact that cannot be argued, sorry) is the REAL bully, not Chick-Fil-A and its policies. No, no, must always defend the RWNJs and anti-gay BIGOTS, and must always defend self-loathing pieces of trash that put a mediocre chicken sandwich over basic human rights for people like themselves.

If you're LGBT and eat at Chick-Fil-A, there's something deeply wrong with you. And if you claim to be an LGBT-Ally and eat at Chick-Fil-A, then you're lying to yourself. And the rest of the world. You're no ally.

Actions have consequences. If you can't even be bothered to stop helping fund anti-gay bigotry by simply avoiding a mediocre fast food place when there are TONS of other, better options, then WTF is even your problem? Stop whining.

R119 - I don't patronize CFA and joke (but not bully) about the queens that eat there but in terms of the occasional deep fry, I do sometimes give in to KFC out here in Eastern Europe because of the breast fillets that are fried with a usual seasonings plus an extra dash of paprika. In the US, I also have the occasional Jack in the Box spicy sandwich (I eat it with only half the bun). However, if, as one poster pointed out, I would see that yes, they employ and give decent wages and benefits to gay men, then I would be supporting that particular store. At the same time, I am more of a Chipotle queen and I have seen lots of gay Latinos work there which is why, besides being a healthier (and, for me, tastier) choice, I prefer that. And then the most important question is how do we REALLY know who is our ally or just virtue signaling? For all I know, the owners of any ethnic or American or shoul food restaurant in LA could secretly be agaisnt us. At this point, what is real and what is virtue signaling?

You have a small point - we have seen this with companies who celebrate Pride but have also supported unfriendly political candidates.

But not spending money with CFA, a company that is AS CLEAR AS THE MOTHERFUCKING SUN IN THE MOTHERFUCKING SKY about its antigay stances, a company that has given money to organizations that support the murder of gay people overseas, is not "virtue signaling." It's called SELF PRESERVATION.

No. The only reason Popeyes created their chicken sandwich in a bag is because of CFA’s popularity. They weren’t counting on it exploding the way that it did, but when it did, other chains followed suit. However, the genesis of the current chicken sandwich craze is with CFA.

I grew up with Chick-Fil-A just being in malls and it was a special treat. Always thought it was delicious and was really upset to learn that the company is made up of homophobes. I cut it out cold turkey and switched to Popeye's, Raising Cane's, KFC, or Zaxby's whenever I had a chicken craving. The Popeye's sandwich is easily the best. It's not even a contest.

Also, Chick-Fil-A might have been tasty, but it always gave me the worst gas and stomach problems. The worst experience I ever had bottoming was right after eating some of that bullshit of theirs. The real hate crime is what Chick-Fil-A does to a bottom's butt hole.

I tried the BK Spicy Chicken somewhere around Oklahoma City last week and like some others here, I found it to be too much. When I unwrapped it and saw what a mess it was, dripping with a mix of oil and sauce that the bun was no match for, I immediately regretted my order. However somehow I was able to choke it down 100%. I have been sampling the chicken sandwiches at a rate of one every three weeks, but I'm going to give the BK six weeks because it was egregiously oily.

I first had the McDonald's new Spice Chicken sandwich in March in Texarkana, and I was blown away. It was fried, yet not oily at all. There were two dime-sized dots of sauce on the bun beneath two dime-sized pickle slices, which was slightly disappointing, but too little sauce is better than flooding it with sauce (and it's usually one or the other, never a proportionate amount) so I was satisfied with it. I ordered it again in April and it still hit the mark, however, I ordered one a month ago and it was saturated with oil, not crispy, and they 'forgot' the pickles and sauce altogether. Eating it wasn't worth the cholesterol and I doubt I will ever order one again. These were all different locations around the southern Plains.

Where to begin with CFA? When I had my son I often took him to the local library (Frisco, TX) and they had a special area just for babies-preschool, like most libraries. It was a very defined space, literally fenced off and you had to speak to the librarian to be admitted. CFA apparently donated a lot of money to this specific play area and there was a CFA logo (among a few others) on the wall and a TV lottery-style giant check displayed on the wall that said something like 'Pay to the order of Frisco Public Library Ready to Read program, $10,000' signed CFA. It's been a few years but if I recall correctly, they had CFA pretend-food for the kids to play with. I was pretty shocked that this was in a public library. When my son started school it was as bad or worse. CFA gave kid's meal voucher cards in preschool, and in Kindergarten they partnered with PTA so that when PTA wanted to do small, low-effort fundraisers in between their huge, obnoxious fundraisers, they would tell everyone to go eat at CFA on such and such night and CFA would donate 15% of the proceeds back to the elementary school PTA. This is several times a year. And teachers here fill out a form at the beginning of the year that we're all sent which tells everyone the teachers' favorite gifts from a dozen different categories-- (favorite bath and body works scent, favorite candy, favorite Starbucks drink, favorite fast food, their Amazon account so you can send them Amazon gift cards) favorite fast food is always CFA! And everyone scratches their heads and wonders why kids are getting so fat. It's like Frisco Schools, brought to you by Chik fil-A!

Right out of Idiocracy.

R1 & R2 are correct. And why is Popeyes the best? Because they have the absolute best chicken. It's moist, tender, and so well-seasoned, that doesn't even need additional condiments. No other fast food chain can touch Popeyes. It's superior.

Popeyes does have better chicken than KFC, by miles. But as far as chicken sandwiches go, CFAs are still the best. And the spicy one? Fuggeddaboudit.

R191, Mayo is awesome. I don't understand how people eat sandwiches without Mayo. You like your sandwiches fucking DRY and FLAVORLESS? Mayo adds both moisture and brings out flavor. It ain't a sandwich worth eating without mayo on it.

They fucking are not.

R192, the BK Chicken Sandwich wins over Wendy's, no contest.

And they already have fake-chicken McNuggets. I imagine that full on Chicken Sandwiches aren't too far behind. Though it may take a while to perfect.

Mayo is for fat white people. Ewww

I like the honey mustard they put on the Wendy's grilled chicken sandwich but it doesn't go with everything.

Mayo is for anyone with taste.

Some woman at work goes off on how she HATES "Mayo", but loves "Aioli" ... WHICH IS JUST FUCKING MAYONNAISE. Some people are so stupid.

Like that girl who hated "mayonnaise", but loved "mayo". Seriously. If the package said "Mayo", she's love it, but if it spelled the whole word out, she'd turn up her nose. No amount of telling her it's the same fucking thing could get through her thick skull.

There's just something WRONG with mayo-haters.

Mayonnaise is sublime. Ignore the troll.

The old McDonald's "Southern Style Chicken Sandwich" (R.I.P.) was better than Chick-Fil-A. And cheaper too.

True r204 and I liked it better than the new McDonalds chicken sandwich

No it wasn't. A total knockoff, yes, but not better.

McDonald’s southern sandwich was not good, which is why the masses rejected it. They should hired real southerners from Bojangles or CFA to develop a real southern sandwich

It absolutely was better.

I preferred it to every other chicken sandwich they ever had, and it was priced right too.

How about nuggets? I still like McDonald's best.

And again, it was not. Not even close.

I used to live close to a Kenny Rogers Roasters, I miss their BBQ chicken pita.

Also used to have a Famous Recipe chicken that was so good. I thought that was some of the best fast food fried chicken I have had.
