Add one more contender to the battle over the best chicken sandwich.

Burger King announced last week it will release its new “Ch’King” sandwich on June 3. As an added bonus, customers who order the sandwich online or through Burger King’s app will get a free Whopper.

The Ch’King includes a hand-breaded chicken filet, pickles and a signature sauce served on a potato bun. Customers can also get a spicy version which includes a “spicy glaze,” says the fast-food chain, or a Deluxe version with lettuce and tomato.

The Ch’King offer including a free Whopper is valid until June 20.

In 2019, Popeye’s launched its first-ever chicken sandwich, fueling a surge in offerings from rival restaurants, including McDonald’s and Wendy’s.

However, our hunger for chicken has made poultry tough to find, and restaurants are either limiting or running out of items such as chicken sandwiches, wings and tenders.

Chicago’s Portillo’s chain of eateries announced their spicy chicken sandwich last week, offering a special twist — hot giardiniera sauce.

Unlike some of its other competitors, the fried sandwich is served on a toasted brioche bun with lettuce and tomato. The hot giardiniera sauce, which is Portillo’s classic pickled giardiniera relish mixed in with a hot, creamy sauce, is slathered on both buns.
