The Fast Food Post has learned that Burger King is putting a spicy twist on a classic fan favorite with the launch of the new Mexican Original Chicken Sandwich starting in early January 2023.
Burger King’s new Mexican Original Chicken Sandwich will feature a lightly breaded chicken breast paired with what appears to be either ghost pepper cheese or spicy queso and crispy-fried jalapeños on a sesame seed bun. It’s basically the chicken sandwich version of the brand’s recently released Ghost Pepper Whopper, but without the orange bun.
I reached out to my local Burger King, and although they couldn’t give me an exact date, they did confirm that the sandwich is, indeed, in the works and that it will be priced somewhere around the $5.99 mark.
For those unfamiliar, the Original Chicken Sandwich, which was first introduced back in 1978, features lightly breaded chicken topped with crisp lettuce and creamy mayonnaise on a long sesame seed bun.
