Chicken sandwiches are all the rage right now. It seems to be a heated debate between Popeyes and Chick-fil-A (I haven’t tried either, but Popeye’s clearly wins the photo appeal), but there are other players in the game as well work recognizing.
Now before you go yelling at me that fried chicken sandwiches are not healthy- I’m not comparing these to find the “healthiest” sandwich. While you’re not going to be eating a fried chicken sandwich with macros in mind, I always think it’s useful to know what you are actually eating. If you’re stuck choosing between Popeyes and Chick-fil-A, maybe the difference in calories will be a factor for you.
If calories are a concern to you but you feel like you have to get in on the chicken sandwich frenzy, note that most of these have some kind of ranch of mayo on them. Getting it without these may take away some of the flavor, but can also remove 100-200 calories.
Which one of these is the GOAT? Right now it looks like Popeyes is the favorite, but only time will tell.
