Fast Food Chain Boston Market Adds a Nashville Hot Chicken Sandwich to Its Menu

The newest addition to the fast-food chicken sandwich wars comes from rotisserie chicken chain Boston Market, and at first glance, Nashville natives might feel personally victimized by this attempt. According to a press release from the brand, the new chicken sandwich is a brioche bun layered with a breaded chicken breast, alleged smoky ‘Nashville Hot’ sauce, pickles, and ranch dressing. The Nashville hot chicken-inspired sandwiches are available at all 350 Boston Market locations and can be ordered at the restaurant via drive-thru, the chain’s website, or mobile app.

Boston Market hot chicken eaters’ first reviews on social media are pretty mixed. A few comments (shared anonymously here) include “seriously the worst hot chicken we have ever had — the spicy sauce was basically bbq sauce,” “delicious,” “really didn’t like it.”

Lucky for Boston Market, there aren’t any restaurants in Tennessee, so no Nashville natives will have instant access to roast the sandwich on social media or in the highly opinionated Fraternal Order of Hot Chicken group on Facebook.
