Church’s Brings Back Bourbon Black Pepper Smokehouse Chicken Alongside New Texas Sheet Cake


Church’s Chicken just announced that it’s bringing back a true original for the 2021 Smokehouse Season: The Bourbon Black Pepper Smokehouse Chicken.

With its return, Church’s aims to deliver those classic summer flavors fans know and love with a kick of Texas-sized attitude and a one-of-a-kind sensory experience.

The Bourbon Black Pepper Smokehouse Chicken consists of a bone-in half chicken marinated in a savory, smoky seasoning, deep-fried without batter or breading. Once cooked, it’s then glazed with a sweet, smoky sauce that features a hint of bourbon and topped with fresh cracked black pepper.

Fans can get a single combo meal that includes an entire half chicken, mashed potatoes and a Honey-Butter Biscuit for $5. And for those looking to feed the entire family for dinner, the chain is offering a family meal deal that includes two half chickens, six Texas Tenders, a large order of mashed potatoes and gravy, a large order of coleslaw and four Honey-Butter Biscuits, all for just $20.

Church’s created a guided audio tasting to help fans experience every sensory detail on a deeper level. The tasting guide elevates the sensory experience by encouraging fans to slow down and savor every scent and flavor note as they sink their teeth into their Bourbon Black Pepper Smokehouse meal. The brand will also include a tasting card with every Smokehouse Chicken meal in select markets that will let guests note all the flavors they experience, including sweetness, smokiness, and even juiciness level.

In addition to the return of the Bourbon Black Pepper Smokehouse Chicken, Church’s will also be serving up a twist on a traditional dessert option this summer: The Texas Sheet Cake.

The Bourbon Black Pepper Smokehouse Chicken will be available at participating Church’s Chicken restaurants nationwide from May 27 through August 29, 2021. Prices may vary.
