Shake Shack is sweetening fall with a new honey-pepper fried chicken sandwich.
Today, the chain launched its second venture in the chicken sandwich world: the Salt & Pepper Honey Chick’n ($6.29), made with a chicken breast simmered in buttermilk marinade then fried, topped with salted honey and ground black pepper on a potato bun. The mild flavor defies the current trend of needs-soft-serve-to-stop-the-burn hot chicken, but maybe our tastebuds could use a cooling-down period.
In any case, the Salt & Pepper Honey Chick’n is also being marketed as being available for a limited time, so get thee to Brooklyn — the only borough where you can get the new sandwich for now. Find it at 409 Fulton St. (downtown), 1 Old Fulton St. (DUMBO) and 170 Flatbush Ave. by the Barclays Center.
