"I'm not sure I'm comfortable with this black pepper. Just add extra mayo."

Extra spice to cover up the bitter taste of chicken flavored hate.

Would that mean an extra pickle?

/Dill is a spice, right?

This.

I loved Chick-fil-a when I was bitty, but I can give my money to other people who aren't horrible bigots.

I've never tasted this one but I can tell you with certainty that Popeye's Spicy Chicken Sandwich is better.

Did anyone mention that the company is run by bigots yet?

Indeed, however it's always a gamble that they won't take forever to get your food ready.

Well yeah, this one is grilled, not fried.

I don't think I'll ever understand the fascination with Chik-fil-A.  No amount of customer service or drive thru efficiency will make up for entirely mediocre fast food.  And the waffle fries are garbage.

Why do people rave about CFA's waffle fries? Have they never had good waffle fries before?

Cool, I'm going to swing by there next Sunday and check it out.

Same with Five Guys fries. I don't understand the cultist obsession with their greasy, limp potato sticks. While I definitely appreciate a perfectly made, crispy on the outside, pillowy on the inside french fry; I also have pretty low standards when it comes to how bad fries have to be before I refuse 'em. Five Guys fries are inedible.

So WTH makes this new offering spicy?

direct from the cluck

https://thechickenwire.chick-fil-a.co​m​/food/introducing-the-grilled-spicy-de​luxe
Grilled Spicy Marinade - The Grilled Spicy Deluxe features a new marinade inspired by the recipe for our original Spicy Chicken Sandwich recipe, but layers in additional flavors and spices to complement the existing flavor. "The Grilled Spicy Deluxe marinade offers a bigger and bolder flavor while not adding additional heat," said Wadlington.

that's informative. Let's check out what it is based on

https://www.chick-fil-a.com/menu-item​s​/spicy-chicken-sandwich
A boneless breast of chicken seasoned with a spicy blend of peppers, hand-breaded, pressure cooked in 100% refined peanut ...

Great. Now I know it is spiced with peppers and stuff that doesn't add heat.

This.  I don't hate Chik-fil-A's food.  It's fine.  But just with a mile or 2 of my work, Bojangles is much better, Popeyes is much better, Zaxby's is much better.  Hell, the asiago chicken sandwich (spicy) at Wendy's is better.

The "old" deep fried spicy chix sammich from Chick-Fil-A beats the Popeye's one hands down.

/Not that I remember the last time I bought either.  Well over a year ago.

Difficulty: Five Guys is the only burger joint I can reliably eat at due to a food allergy. Mostly I skip the fries, but if you catch them right out of the fryer and eat them hot they're not awful.

/helps tremendously if you are a bit tipsy

I'm pretty much use to them, because a lot of places in Chicago cook fries like that. Eating them hot is the key.

I have had chic fil la spicy chicken before but I don't get the hype. It's an okay sandwich from a company whose politics I don't care for. As for popeyes and there answer the nearest one is too far away and poorly run.
I'd rather soak some boneless skinless thighs in buttermilk and hot sauce overnight. Dredge them in a mixture of potato starch ,cornmeal and cajun seasoning blend., fry them up in peanut oil and serve them on a Martin's potato roll with a smidge of Dukes mayo.

McDonalds excels at making French fries. Only item on their menu that they do better. Something about cooking them twice, iirc. Best chicken sandwich has to be a toss up between Popeye's and KFC.

red5ish: Something about cooking them twice, iirc.


That's part of it, but most places already do a double fry.  Kenji deep a pretty good article on McDonald's fries a while back:

How to Make Perfect Thin and Crisp French Fries | The Food Lab | Serious Eats

His process involved 3 cooking steps with freezing in between.

Blanch, fry, freeze, fry.  Then eat fries.
