Popeyes Singapore will launch a new chicken burger from Sep. 16 to Oct. 14, 2020.

The Chicken Sandwich was launched in the U.S last year, and according to the fast food brand, sparked long queues and raving reviews.

The Chicken Sandwich will use brioche bun buttered with the same topping that is used on Popeyes' signature biscuits.

The burger will also comprise of freshly brined pickles, spicy cajun sauce, and buttermilk and hand-breaded chicken fillet.

In order to cater to Singaporean taste buds, the fillet of the Chicken Sandwich will be made using thigh meat sourced locally, instead of the chicken breast used overseas.

It will be marinated for 12 hours in Louisiana seasonings, hand-battered and breaded in buttermilk coating before being fried.

Opening the box, there is no mistaking the familiar scent of Popeyes fried chicken in the air.

The chicken fillet itself is satisfyingly juicy on the inside and crispy on the outside. It is also rather large and meaty.

That said, these are pretty common characteristics of a good chicken burger.

What makes it special though, is the bun, which is buttered and lightly toasted to a golden brown.

To one colleague, it is the bun that held the entire burger together because of how delicious it tastes.

Combined with the crunch of the pickles and crispy chicken fillet, it isn't hard to guess why the burger has been immensely popular overseas.
