We might be seeing a chicken nugget war in our future.

Popeyes is adding nuggets to the menu, after the popularity of its chicken sandwich.

The item is essentially a smaller, bun-less version of the sandwich. It uses the same fried chicken breaded in buttermilk.

Popeyes started the so-called chicken sandwich wars in 2019 when it first introduced its new chicken sandwich.

The item sold out in less than two weeks and encouraged other fast-food chains to add or update their own chicken sandwiches.

Right now, some restaurants are facing supply issues because of a chicken shortage.

Popeyes is confident that won’t impact the nugget rollout on July 27.
