Remember the chicken sandwich wars? Well, Popeyes might be plotting a return to the battlefield.

Apparently, Popeyes is launching a new Blackened Chicken Sandwich at participating locations, Chew Boom reports.

The fast-food chain’s new chicken sandwich offers a twist on its Blackened Tenders introduced several years ago.

Similar to Popeyes’ popular fried chicken sandwich, the new blackened chicken sandwich comes in a classic and spicy version. The sandwich swaps out the fried for a non-battered chicken fillet fried with a blend of blackened seasoning, the website said.

The blackened chicken comes sandwiched between a toasted brioche bun with pickles and mayo.

So far, there’s no word on whether Popeyes is only testing the item in select locations or preparing for a national rollout. The Popeyes website lists the chicken sandwich as a menu item available as part of a combo or a la carte, but it’s currently showing unavailable at Cincinnati locations.
