Some of you are thinking, “yum, spicy!” and others are going, “yikes, spicy!” So which one is it? Well, our Spicy Chicken Sandwich is a tender breaded chicken breast filet with a cayenne pepper kick – a kick, just enough for those looking to spice it up a bit, but not too hot for those who typically shy away from all-things “spicy.”
“Have you tried our Spicy Chicken Sandwich? It’s really, really good,” said Scott, co-founder, owner, FredHead and original grill master. “We chose the recipe for the breading with just the right level of heat and flavor zing to satisfy those palates that enjoy a bit of heat, but definitely not overwhelming for everyone else.”
What’s Different About the Spicy Chicken Sandwich?
The Spicy Chicken Sandwich brings a different flavor profile to our everyday menu and helps satisfy our Guests’ craving for something a little bit spicy. According to the Scoville scale, the cayenne pepper is at about 50,000 SHUs (Scoville Heat Units), though the cayenne pepper in a powder spice form is a bit lower on the scale ranging from 30,000 to 50,000 SHUs.
For those of you who can handle some serious heat, Clayton is going to show you how to bring up the heat a notch or two.
As you might know, we have several other savory chicken options on the Freddy’s menu, along with the Spicy Chicken Sandwich. Both our Spicy Chicken Sandwich and our Crispy Chicken Sandwich are fried to a crispy golden brown and topped with our well-known crunchy pickle planks on a toasted bun. Our other delicious chicken options include fried Chicken Tenders, for kids and adults alike, and our Grilled Chicken Breast Sandwich, served with lettuce and tomato on a toasted bun (or really tasty as a lettuce wrap!).
