Jericho, NY (RestaurantNews.com) Nathan’s Famous, Inc., the American tradition serving New York favorites for more than 100 years, announced today new additions to its recently evolved line of chicken sandwiches. The two new additions, the Nashville Hot Fried Chicken Sandwich and Sticky, Spicy Grilled Chicken Sandwich, will feature the more flavorful boneless, skinless chicken thigh, unique to QSR and Fast Casual restaurants, but popular with chefs and foodies across the country.
“We continue to evolve our menu based on customer preference and feedback, and the two new chicken sandwiches are no exception,” states James Walker, Senior Vice President, Restaurants. “After a great deal of research and development, we found that the use of the chicken thigh gave our new sandwiches a flavor punch, offering a juicier and more intense flavor due to the dark meat. We believe the addition of the Nashville Hot Sauce and Koji Sticky, Spicy Sauce make these two sandwiches some of the most flavorful options in the industry.”
The Nashville Hot Chicken Sandwich and Sticky, Spicy Grilled Chicken Sandwich both include the more flavorful chicken thigh opposed to the chicken breast. The Nashville Hot Chicken Sandwich features a chicken thigh hand-dipped in batter, fried and tossed with Nashville hot sauce, served on a buttered and toasted Turano roll with mayo and crinkle cut pickle slices. The Sticky, Spicy Grilled Chicken Sandwich features a chicken thigh marinated overnight in Koji Sticky Spicy Sauce, served on a Turano roll, topped with slaw, Nathan’s own sticky, spicy sauce, green onions and sesame seeds.
Both sandwiches are a part of Nathan’s Famous new value menu and are offered for $7 each. Currently, fans can find the chicken sandwiches in select stores in New York and Florida, with a planned roll out nationwide in the coming months.
