TYLER, Texas (KETK) – McDonald’s has officially decided to go all in and join the chicken sandwich wars.
The chain will be testing a crispy chicken sandwich in Houston and Knockville, Tennessee.
It will feature a fried chicken fillet on a buttery roll, spread with butter and pickles. There is also a deluxe version available, which includes tomatoes, lettuce, and mayonnaise.
This comes just weeks after Popeye’s chicken sandwiches took the nation by storm, leading to a nationwide shortage and long lines at many locations.
That sandwich was created to compete against fast-food giant Chick-Fil-A, which has grown to be one of the top profit-earners in the country, despite being closed on Sundays.
