Is this thing the Muhammad Ali of chicken sandwiches? Thats what I've heard so far. Chick-Fil-A and Wendy's had to chime in.

If so, I fully expect if I try to get one of these things on my cheat day, they'll b nice and out of em.

If you need that popeyes fix on your overall diet, try the blackened chicken strips. The sodium is not great but otherwise not to bad. Definitely get that traditional popeyes flavor.

Here is my go-to popeyes while trying to eat healthy. Not bad for 325 calories and 6 grams of fat.

Negative brother. If you're gonna cheat on your diet, you GO ALL IN! If I want to halfass it, I'll go to Chick-Fil-A. :loopy:
I understand. I eat plenty of unhealthy food including at Popeyes but this is a way that I consider eating Popeyes that isn't cheating on your diet. Just showing a way that honestly tastes about as good as any sub 500 calorie under 10 grams of fast food meal you can find. IMO.

Honestly, ghost peppers are ridiculously hot for me. I'm a bit hesitant to try those wings. If it's a milder version of the ghost pepper, I might be willing to give it a shot.
It's nowhere near as hot as you might expect. Just a small kick.

The Popeye's Ghost Pepper wings are not even as spicy as the Spicy Chicken Sandwich. And the wings are micro... are they actual cornish hen wings? But, I agree - they are tasty.
That was my experience with them. I made a Popeyes run Saturday and added an order to our family pack so we could try them out. Everyone agreed they were milder than the spicy chicken, and they are pretty small. They do have a tasty hint pepper flavoring, but it's not from ghost peppers.

Meh, my guess is that their employees usually just throw into the box whatever is cooked and available at the time you order.. I cant count over the course of my lifetime how often ive gone to a Popeyes and ordered spicy chicken (and I *always* order spicy) only to get home and have it obviously be mild.. They give you what they have, like anyone is ever gonna go back and complain that their chicken isnt spicy enough?? So yeah, those werent the ‘ghost pepper ‘ Wings they gave you.

Maybe it's "Ghost" Pepper wings... where the pepper is an apparition.


I agree though, they are small and tasty, but not very spicy.

Tried the spicy sandwich a couple of months ago. Maybe it is due to all the mega-hype originally surrounding it, but it wasn't all that great. For $3.99, not bad, but nothing life-changing.

To be fair, I only eat fast food, at most, once a month. Could also be that the Popeye's near my house seems to be a bit inconsistent. Maybe I'll try it again elsewhere (should have grabbed one when I was in NOLA last weekend, for comparison purposes) but I'm in no big rush for another one.

FYI, and this was mentioned earlier in the thread- there is no ‘spicy’ or ‘mild’ chicken sandwich.. they are exactly the same, the only difference is that the ‘spicy’ version comes with Spicy Mayonnaise.. Since mayonnaise is the most disgusting substance on the planet, the couple times i got the Popeyes chicken sandwich, i ordered it plain and got some of their dipping sauce.. i think the Mardi Gras Mustard, or Ranch.
