Popeyes Blackened Rooster Sandwich options a hen breast filet marinated in blackened seasoning after which fried with out breading. The blackened hen filet is then served with pickles and mayo on a toasted brioche bun.
I paid $4.99 for the sandwich.
So far as my experiences go, my native Popeyes has been fairly beneficiant with their hen portioning for the common Rooster Sandwich and that carried over for the Blackened Rooster Sandwich as properly. I mainly received two small hen breast filets pressed collectively to make one huge one.
The blackened seasoning permeated the hen for an pleasurable Cajun taste all through that was additionally pretty salty and mildly spicy (much less so than their Blackened Tenders it appeared). Texture-wise, the hen had a slight crispiness in some bites from being fried however was nonetheless moist inside.
The mayo was a bit extreme in my explicit sandwich–it was utilized to each the highest and backside buns and tended to squeeze out of the sides as I ate. It added a wealthy tang and creaminess that balanced out the saltiness of the hen.
The pickles supplied a more energizing crunch and a lighter bitter chunk versus your customary quick meals pickles.
My explicit bun was overly browned (throughout baking?) and was a bit dry, which suggests it may need been sitting for some time. It was good for a barely richness and a smooth, ethereal texture however was springy slightly than squishy.
Total, Popeyes Blackened Rooster Sandwich turned out very properly in my ebook. The hen was stuffed with a particular and attractive taste that is not obtainable at most quick meals chains and there was loads of it. Popeyes’ Blackened Tenders are a go-to order for me at Popeyes and the sandwich model provides a good bit of complementary flavors to reinforce the expertise.
