Just Landed: Hot Chick’n is Back!

Sep 1, 2020

You asked… and asked, and asked. After two years cooped up with our culinary team gettin’ it just-right, Hot Chick’n is finally back for a limited time.

Our Hot Chick’n is a crispy, antibiotic-free chicken sandwich dusted with our own guajillo and cayenne pepper blend that took months to perfect. It’s topped with our own cooling cherry pepper slaw that let’s our spice blend’s flavor really shine, plus pickles for added crunch and acidity—all cradled by our classic, toasted non-GMO potato roll.

And this year, you can customize your heat level: just ask for it Hot or Extra Hot!

To get it, head over to our Shack App or order ahead for contact-free payment + pick-up (and avoid any lines).

FLYING ABOVE THE FLOCK
So, what puts our Hot Chick’n sandwich above that other fowl play? All our chicken is real, white-meat breast that’s fresh, never frozen with no hormones or antibiotics—ever. A lotta people ask us what makes our chicken so juicy, so here’s the secret straight from our culinary team: it’s slow-cooked sous vide (a fine dining technique that prevents overcooking) in a creamy buttermilk marinade. After that, it’s dredged and breaded by hand and crisp-fried to-order every single time.

Hot Chick’n might be our main flame, but this year we’re spicing up our entire squad with a whole new Hot Menu—each served with cool ranch dip.
