And recently, the chains launched a new chicken sandwich

The two brands know hand-breaded chicken well. Their chicken tenders, which were launched 10 years ago, are a prominent fixture on the menu. The sister chains have now taken their chicken technique expertise and applied it to a trio of new items, including a Hand-Breaded Chicken Sandwich, which launched on May 17. At a glance, the new item seems like a clone of every single chicken sandwich currently on the market, potato bun, pickles, mayo, and all.

But according to this fast-food critic, it's a surprisingly strong contender for the top spot in the chicken sandwich wars. "The first bite left me silently stunned: succulent, flavorful, and, despite the fact that I had gotten it delivered, crunchy to the point that it rang in my ears," she wrote in her review for The Takeout.
