Popeyes Gets Wicked With Garlic Pepper
Popeyes Louisiana Kitchen brings back Wicked Chicken with a twist this February with all new Garlic Pepper Wicked Chicken.
For a limited time, consumers can experience the flavor spin of Garlic Pepper Wicked Chicken with Cajun fries, a buttermilk biscuit, Garlic Pepper Parmesan Dipping Sauce, and a mini bottle of Tabasco brand Pepper Sauce for only $3.99 now through Feb. 19.
Garlic Pepper Wicked Chicken boasts the same great taste of Popeyes Wicked Chicken with enhanced roasted garlic and black pepper flavors. Like the original, Garlic Pepper Wicked Chicken is thin strips of tender, juicy, all white meat chicken marinated with authentic Louisiana seasonings, hand-battered and breaded in the restaurants, served up crispy, twisty, and curly!
To heighten the garlic pepper flavor, Popeyes also introduces a unique new creamy Garlic Pepper Parmesan Dipping Sauce.
"Popeyes fans have experienced, and loved, the crazed Wicked Chicken for the past two years, and the success of the product sparked the idea to expand on the flavor varieties," says Dick Lynch, chief global brand officer.
"Popeyes has the culinary heritage, passion and ability to take an already unique product in Wicked Chicken and make it even better with the new and exciting flavors of garlic and pepper in both the chicken and the dipping sauce."
Founded in 1972 in New Orleans, Popeyes has 2,034 operating restaurants in the United States, Guam, Puerto Rico, the Cayman Islands, and 26 foreign countries.
