This Popular Popeyes Chicken Sandwich Is Back and Here to Stay

Updated: Dec. 20, 2023

Can you guess what sandwich is making a comeback?

Every once in awhile, the nearly impossible happens: one of our fast-food favorites makes a comeback. It’s rare, but it does happen—like the return of the Taco Bell Enchirito and Nacho Fries.

Now, Popeyes is having one of those rare moments, too. The Popeyes Blackened Chicken Sandwich, which debuted in November 2022 as a limited-time item, is back! This time, it’s as a permanent menu item. Here’s how you can get yours.

What Is Popeyes Blackened Chicken Sandwich?

The Popeyes Blackened Chicken Sandwich offers a 12-hour marinated chicken breast seasoned with Cajun spices, a classic or spicy mayo and is served on a toasted “buttery brioche bun” with pickles. OK, we’re seriously excited about this Popeyes comeback.
