After the Popeyes chicken sandwich became a cultural phenomenon last year, KFC was on the outside looking in when it came to the sandwich wars. Now KFC is testing out a new chicken sandwich in the Orlando area. If it takes off, we could see it nationwide. The sandwich boasts of a buttery brioche bun, a 20 percent larger extra crispy chicken filet, thicker pickles, and the Colonel’s real mayo. The KFC chicken sandwich will have to overcome the competition that Chick-fil-A and Popeyes have brought forth.
The fast-food chain, which has chicken in its name, has surprisingly found itself playing catch-up against chicken sandwiches from rivals like Popeyes, Chick-fil-A and McDonald's. https://t.co/v577fufHIg
