Popeyes(R) Louisiana Kitchen announced today its newest Louisiana-inspired meal, Beer Can Chicken. Popeyes Beer Can Chicken pays homage to a popular and revered southern method of cooking chicken. A whole chicken breast is marinated in traditional seasonings of lemon zest, butter, garlic, rosemary and cayenne pepper. The breast is then hand-battered in Popeyes crispy southern coating and fried fresh the Popeyes way. Each Beer Can Chicken breast is cut into three big strips and served with Cajun fries, a biscuit and Popeyes new spicy dipping sauce for just $3.99.

“At Popeyes, we always look to our southern heritage to guide our menu innovation,” said Hector Munoz, Popeyes chief marketing officer-U.S. & vice president of marketing. “Popeyes Beer Can Chicken comes right from the backyard grills of the best southern barbeques. The legendary beer can seasonings and Popeyes dedication to true southern-cooked food makes Beer Can Chicken a natural offering for Popeyes customers.”
