Another "better burger" chain seems to be gunning for the better chicken sandwich, too. Smashburger, which already has several chicken sandwiches on its menu, just announced the release of a new limited-time offer that'll set your tastebuds ablaze: the Scorchin' Hot Crispy Chicken Sandwich.
This baby is made with Nashville hot crispy chicken, spicy red pepper mayo, and pickles. Served on a classic toasted bun, it's currently available at nationwide locations. You'll be able to test your spice-level tolerance with this new sandwich all the way through June 15, the company revealed in a news release.
But this new crispy chicken sandwich is also on a mission—to call a truce in the crispy chicken sandwich wars and celebrate the survival of a rough year in the restaurant industry. To that end, Smashburger is giving away a completely free Scorchin' Hot Crispy Chicken Sandwich to any fast-casual or fast-food employee who comes into one of its locations dressed in their work uniform between 2 p.m. and 5 p.m. through April 22.
