Wendy’s To Release New Jalapeño Popper Chicken Sandwich


Look out Popeyes, it appears that Wendy’s is looking to throw its hat into the crowded chicken sandwich ring once again with the launch of a new spicy chicken sandwich called the “Jalapeño Popper Chicken Sandwich.”

Update: The sandwich is now available at participating locations in three varieties—Spicy, Classic, and Grilled—for a suggested price of $5.89 each. You can also get them as part of a combo along with fries and a drink for $8.69. Just keep in mind that prices may vary by location.

Although it hasn’t been officially announced yet, leaked documents reveal that the new Jalapeno Popper Chicken Sandwich comes with a spicy chicken fillet topped with shredded pepper jack cheese, applewood smoked bacon, sliced jalapeños, and jalapeño cream cheese on a plain bun.

It’s similar to their Spicy Bacon Jalapeño Chicken Sandwich, but with the addition of Jalapeño Cream Cheese. It’s also missing a few other ingredients like bacon, crispy fried onions, and cheese sauce. But even without all that savory goodness, it still sounds much tastier than the Spicy Bacon Jalapeño Chicken Sandwich that they released back in 2019.

According to a Reddit post, there’s also a Jalapeno Spicy Salad in the works and it looks like they’ll soon be adding a fish sandwich to the menu, too, which may as well be the chain’s North Pacific Cod Sandwich making its annual return, just in time for Lenten season.

There is no word yet on when the new items will hit menus, but I’m hopeful that it’ll be sooner rather than later.
