Every time I look another fast food chain is announcing a new fried chicken sandwich. The fast food chicken sandwich battle started in 2019 when Popeyes introduced the world to its take on the crispy chicken sandwich. Since then customers have been pitting fast food restaurants against each other to find the best chicken sandwich. We aren't including restaurants that stick chicken nuggets on a roll and call it a sandwich (sorry Zaxby's and Raising Cane's).
