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.

Man, I just started my Keto again, and yall had to bring up this darn chicken sandwich.. blast yall....
I make keto fried chicken by coating it in coconut flour and parmesan cheese. Keto bread is another puzzle altogether. I haven't mastered a good one yet. However, I do make a great keto pizza crust with almond flour and mozzerella.

I've never had hospital green beans... but a lot of people like mine.

Saute down a chopped onion in butter. Add chopped bacon. When onions start getting clear, stir in green beans making sure they are coated and season with a little Tony's. If green beans are fresh, cover with a lid until they get soft. If canned, skip this step. Turn up heat and put a little caramelization on them.
We tried your recipe for the green beans tonight and they were very good!

Taco Bell enters the Chicken Sandwich Wars
===================================

Everyone seems to love fried chicken sandwiches. But how about a fried chicken sandwich on a taco? Taco Bell is making that dream come true with its new Crispy Chicken Sandwich Taco.

It's a creative concoction: The all-white piece of chicken is marinated in jalapeño buttermilk and fried with a crunchy tortilla chip coating, served in a puffy bread that's shaped as a taco. That's then topped in a creamy chipotle sauce. There's also a spicy version that includes an additional topping of jalapeño slices.

Taco Bell is serving the tacos only at participating restaurants in Nashville, Tennessee, and Charlotte, North Carolina, beginning on March 11 for $2.49. A nationwide rollout is planned for later this year, signaling the chain is ready to grow its menu again following a major reduction last year. ................

I thought the chicken sandwich wars were over.
For what it's worth

According to this apart from a brief Popeye's uprising there never was a war (granted this is online only, but it's very interesting)
===================================================

In the ongoing chicken sandwich wars, Chick-fil-A is easily the delivery winner with 45% of the market share.

Fast food brands have been competing in the red-hot chicken sandwich segment since August 2019, when Popeyes introduced a fried chicken sandwich. Online spats and snarky tweets quickly created a rivalry between Popeyes and Chick-fil-A in the months since.

But despite the ongoing competition between the two top chicken sandwich chains, Chick-fil-A has been the nearly undisputed winner in online orders for nearly two years. The chain's streak was only broken briefly in January 2020, when Popeyes overtook it in market share, according to data from Edison Trends.

In December 2020, the most recent month Edison has data for, Chick-fil-A was the clear winner with 45% of online order market share. Popeyes was a distant second with 17%, only barely beating McDonald's 16%...................

This is dumb because Chick-fil-a is the only one who's line is 5 blocks down the street so you have to order online.

Chick-Fil-A has drive thru down to a science with military precision

You'll get through that 5 block line in 10 minutes

Popeyes takes 20-30 minutes with 3 cars ahead of me

Now hold on just a second - this is based on "online orders".

We all know Popeyes digital is a disaster, but that doesn't mean they aren't selling sammiches.

Pretty much. Chick-fil-A is a well oiled machine at most of their locations. And they're about as consistent a fast food chain as one can find. The Popeyes sandwich is better on it's own, which counts for a lot, while CFA does everything else well with a decent chicken sandwich.

I'm gonna be trying the new fish sandwich tonight tho, heh.
