Nathan’s Famous adds Nashville Hot Fried Chicken, Sticky Spicy Grilled Chicken Sandwiches
Customers in Florida, New York markets get first taste of new, chicken-thigh sandwiches
Nathan’s Famous rolled out a Nashville Hot Fried Chicken Sandwich and Sticky, Spicy Grilled Chicken Sandwich. The new menu offerings will arrive at restaurants in the markets of Florida and New York first, and will be available nationally in the coming months. Landing on the value menu, the sandwiches will be priced at $7 each.
The hot dogs, sandwiches and fries franchise will use chicken thighs in the new items, which Nathan’s Famous SVP of Restaurants James Walker suggests makes the Nashville Hot Fried Chicken Sandwich and Sticky, Spicy Grilled Chicken Sandwich juicier and more flavorful than if it used chicken breast.
The Nashville Hot Fried Chicken Sandwich starts with a chicken thigh, hand-dipped in batter, fried and tossed with Nashville hot sauce, which is then served on a buttered and toasted Turano roll with mayo and crinkle-cut pickle slices.
The Sticky, Spicy Grilled Chicken Sandwich features a chicken thigh marinated overnight in Koji Sticky Spicy Sauce. It’s served on a Turano roll, topped with slaw, Nathan’s sticky, spicy sauce, green onions, and sesame seeds.
Walker noted, “After a great deal of research and development, we found that the use of the chicken thigh gave our new sandwiches a flavor punch, offering a juicier and more intense flavor due to the dark meat. We believe the addition of the Nashville Hot Sauce and Koji Sticky, Spicy Sauce make these two sandwiches some of the most flavorful options in the industry.”
