Shake Shack made waves over the summer with the release of a fried chicken sandwich for its New York City customers. In fact, that may be an understatement: the Shack Shack Chick’n Shack sandwich was sold out in just two days. Shake Shack caused further pandemonium by taking the popular crispy-fried creation off the menu temporarily before bringing it back later in the summer.
But now the tantalizing sandwich is available for everyone: Shake Shack announced the Chick’n sandwich will be added to menus nationwide, with the exclusion of the JFK and Times Square locations.
“The introduction of chicken marks a new era for Shake Shack, staying true to our core menu while continuing to innovate new items our guests have asked for,” Shake Shack CEO Randy Garutti said in a statement.
You can get the sandwich — slow-cooked buttermilk fried chicken topped with pickles, shredded lettuce, and homemade buttermilk herb mayo made with chives, parsley, and thyme — for $6.29.
“The Chick’n Shack embodies our modern approach to fine casual American cooking,” said Shake Shack Culinary Director Mark Rosati in a statement. “It’s about providing a simple, pleasurable, uncomplicated experience, but with high-quality, responsibly sourced ingredients.”
