Popeyes Introduces New Breading-Free Blackened Deluxe Chicken Sandwich

TORONTO — Popeyes has introduced its new breading-free Blackened Deluxe Chicken Sandwich at restaurants nationwide.

The whole chicken breast is marinated for 12 hours, seasoned in Cajun and Creole spices and then served fresh atop a warm, toasted brioche bun with barrel-cured pickles, lettuce, tomato and classic or spicy mayonnaise. With the desire to create the next innovation for the brand’s iconic sandwich platform, the Popeyes culinary team spent four years perfecting its version of the classic Blackening cooking technique, which originated in Louisiana and is used to better seal in seasoning and spices to flavour the meat, which then develops browned or blackened crust.  

“When we introduced the coveted Popeyes Chicken Sandwich in 2020 to Canadians, the market clamored to get their hands on the viral product that had taken over the U.S. Now, we’re excited to offer a new breading-free alternative to the classic with our first-of-its-kind Blackened Deluxe Chicken Sandwich,” says Rob Manuel, general manager of Popeyes Canada.
