Why Is Popeyes Chicken Sandwich So Popular?

It may not have gotten as popular as it did without the rivalry it posed with its release.  Chick-fil-a was and is known for its crispy chicken sandwich.  However, Popeyes came along and released this banger of a sandwich and everyone swooned.

Tips For the Perfect Popeyes Chicken Sandwich

– Use other buns – You don’t have to use the brioche buns if you don’t prefer it. Any bun will do the trick, although it won’t perfectly match the original Popeyes sandwich. – Add more condiments or toppings. I like adding tomato, lettuce, and BBQ sauce sometimes. Whatever you’re feeling, although it might not match the exact version of the sandwich.
