Popeyes to Fry Up New Chicken Nuggets Starting July 27, 2021

Popeyes is set to fry up new Chicken Nuggets in the US, Canada, and Puerto Rico starting Tuesday, July 27, 2021.

According to Popeyes, the new Chicken Nuggets are meant to embody the same "quality and flavors" of their Chicken Sandwich but in the form of bite-sized chicken pieces. Popeyes' Chicken Nuggets feature white meat chicken breast pieces that are seasoned, battered and breaded in buttermilk, and deep-fried in each restaurant every day.

Popeyes' new Chicken Nuggets will be available in order sizes ranging from 4 pieces to 48 pieces but the 48-piece option will only be available for purchase online at Popeyes.com and through the Popeyes App. The largest size available when ordering in-restaurant will be 36 pieces.

The chain offers a number of dipping sauces including Bayou Buffalo, BoldBQ, Blackened Ranch, Buttermilk Ranch, Mardi Gras Mustard, and Sweet Heat.

Popeyes has offered both chicken nuggets and popcorn chicken in the past but the latest offering looks to capitalize on and draw upon their experiences with their popular Chicken Sandwich.
