The same restaurant chain that broke the internet (and distribution schedules) with their wildly popular chicken sandwich in 2019 plans to wow customers again with their chicken nuggets. Popeyes Chicken plans to offer chicken nuggets made in similar fashion to their iconic chicken sandwich on July 27, 2021.
“Just like our game-changing Chicken Sandwich, our new Chicken Nuggets are unlike anything you may have experienced before,” Sami Siddiqui, president of Popeyes Americas, said in a press release issued Tuesday.
“We believe that these piece(s) of crunchy, juicy delicious chicken will have guests question how they ever enjoyed chicken nuggets before this,” Siddiqui added. (WJBF)
The same spices and flour and batter system will be used for nuggets the same as their current chicken currently available.

Will you be taste testing the new chicken nuggets? While I enjoy their chicken (and fried shrimp) on occasion, I have yet to try either of their chicken sandwich recipes. Every time I try the line is wrapped around the building. They definitely have a cult following, for sure. Even megastar Beyoncé was known to be a frequent customer during her Destiny’s Child days.
