Almost two years after Popeyes kicked off the chicken-sandwich wars, sister company Burger King is releasing its own contender.

The burger chain, owned by Popeyes parent Restaurant Brands International Inc., is introducing a new breaded chicken sandwich across the U.S. on June 3. The company said it’s been “perfecting” the recipe for two years, or essentially since the launch of Popeyes’ seemingly ordinary sandwich -- a piece of fried meat with pickles and mayo -- that ignited a frenzy in the summer of 2019.
