MIAMI--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Today, Popeyes® announces its new Chicken Nuggets are now available in restaurants in Canada, the U.S. and Puerto Rico. Fans of Popeyes® can now enjoy the same incredible taste and quality from the iconic Chicken Sandwich, but now in pieces. With that Popeyes® says goodbye to the chicken wars by offering piece, 8 piece.
“The launch of our Chicken Sandwich was incredible, and we’re humbled by the amount of love and positive reviews, but at the same time many claimed that it started the chicken wars. Now, it’s time to say goodbye to the chicken wars and celebrate our new Nuggets, because we come in piece, 8 piece to be exact,” said Bruno Cardinali, Chief Marketing Officer, Popeyes®.

The new Popeyes® Chicken Nuggets use the same flour and buttermilk batter from our famous chicken sandwich to provide the perfect combination of a crispy and juicy experience that guests have come to love and expect from the fried chicken masters. Popeyes® Chicken Nuggets are made in restaurant every day, seasoned to perfection, hand-battered and breaded in buttermilk, and fried up fresh to deliver a classically crispy and juicy bite in every piece.
“Our hope is that today guests who can finally try our new Chicken Nuggets will say to themselves: Popeyes® did it again,” said Amy Alarcon, Vice President of Culinary Innovation. “And to us, that means showing the world what they should come to expect when they order Chicken Nuggets.”
The white meat chicken breast Nuggets are available in a classic flavor and can be purchased in-store or through third party delivery, with options ranging from 4 piece to 36 piece orders. Each 8 piece order will come with two signature sauces.
