FAQS

Chicken

Whole chicken pieces are available in mild and spicy. Both kinds are marinated in special seasoning blends before being breaded and fried. Chicken tenders are also available in mild and spicy, with a blackened option as well. Blackened chicken tenders are not battered or fried, making them lower in fat, however the seasoning packs a sodium punch. Chicken dinners come with a side dish and a biscuit. Breaded and blackened tenders can also be put on a Po Boy sandwich with lettuce, pickles and mayo. Back to Top

Several of the side options are under 350 calories.

Desserts

For a sweet treat, Popeyes has several delightfully different dessert choices. The cinnamon apple pie is done handheld-style, with an all-over crust with hot apple-cinnamon filling. Pecan pie is a southern favorite, with crunchy pecans and a buttery custard made from eggs and brown sugar. The Mardi Gras cheesecake is served chilled and decorated with festive edible confetti. Like with most desserts, each should be chosen with the knowledge that additional fat and calories will be added to any meal. Back to Top
