The sandwich features the chain’s New Orleans-style friend chicken on a brioche bun paired with pickles.

Customers have two options to choose from: Original and spicy. The original comes with classic mayo, while the spicy features a Cajun spread.

Many customers quickly compared the sandwich to Chick-fil-A’s Chicken Sandwich, which features a boneless chicken breast on a buttered bun with dill pickle chips.

Chick-fil-A subtly took to Twitter to solidify themselves as the self-proclaimed “original.”
