FACT CHECKED BY Joseph Neese

Another "better burger" chain seems to be gunning for the better chicken sandwich, too. Smashburger, which already has several chicken sandwiches on its menu, just announced the release of a new limited-time offer that'll set your tastebuds ablaze: the Scorchin' Hot Crispy Chicken Sandwich.

This baby is made with Nashville hot crispy chicken, spicy red pepper mayo, and pickles. Served on a classic toasted bun, it's currently available at nationwide locations. You'll be able to test your spice-level tolerance with this new sandwich all the way through June 15, the company revealed in a news release.

But this new crispy chicken sandwich is also on a mission—to call a truce in the crispy chicken sandwich wars and celebrate the survival of a rough year in the restaurant industry. To that end, Smashburger is giving away a completely free Scorchin' Hot Crispy Chicken Sandwich to any fast-casual or fast-food employee who comes into one of its locations dressed in their work uniform between 2 p.m. and 5 p.m. through April 22.
