Cowboy Chicken Makes Watermelon a Summer Theme

Cowboy Chicken-Wood Fire Rotisserie, the seven-unit Dallas-based fast casual brand, announced that it has brought back fresh cut watermelon for a perfect summer side to their menu. In addition, the popular chicken chain has introduced Watermelon Tea, a thirst-quenching sweet summertime beverage.

 

Cowboy Chicken’s new Watermelon Tea is available at all Cowboy Chicken locations for a limited time and is freshly brewed from black tea leaves infused with watermelon. The new Watermelon Tea is also offered in a convenient portable gallon container for summer events and picnics to wash down a genuine Cowboy Chicken meal for only $4.99.

 

We always enjoy summertime with our fresh cut watermelon back on the menu as a favorite side,” says Sean Kennedy, president, Cowboy Chicken. “Our new Watermelon Tea is a delicious and refreshing new flavor that complements our wood fire rotisserie chicken and quenches the summer heat.”

 

For over 30 years, the “down home Cowboys” at Cowboy Chicken have been cooking all natural chicken over a wood burning fire, and today guests enjoy the same wood-fired rotisserie chicken along with seventeen different fresh homemade sides, including fresh cut watermelon for summertime.

 

Since its humble beginnings in 1981, Cowboy Chicken has perfected the taste of chicken on a wood burning rotisserie and created the Twice-Baked "Potaters". Other long time favorites are the Cowboy Chicken Enchiladas stuffed full of all white meat rotisserie chicken and the Chicken salad sandwiches. Homemade Southern Blackberry Cobbler or Apple Cobbler finishes off any Cowboy meal and, both their award-winning Chicken Enchiladas and homemade Cobbler have been on the menu since Cowboy's inception, more than thirty years ago.

 

Along with the fresh cut watermelon, Cowboy Chicken also features healthy fresh salads and sandwiches, grilled skinless chicken breast, and nutritious sides such as baked sweet potato, green beans, and Campfire Veggies, which can all be ordered online. Cowboy Chicken’s fresh cut watermelon and new Watermelon Tea are available along with online ordering for lunch and dinner, take-out, home delivery, and catering services.
