Just over a month after rolling out its new Chicken & Bacon Loaded Fries, Applebee’s is giving customers even more new options to sink their teeth into. And the latest menu additions will pique the interest of fried chicken fans.

The casual dining chain is now serving three new sandwiches made with hand-breaded crispy chicken. Choices include the Bacon Ranch Crispy Chicken Sandwich, Sweet & Spicy Crispy Chicken Sandwich, and Bacon Cheddar Crispy Chicken Sandwich.

“Big, bold, juicy—and crispy—these chicken sandwiches are packed with flavor and available in three delicious iterations, sure to satisfy all our guests’ cravings,” chef Shannon Johnson, head of culinary at Applebee’sPlus, said in a press release. “If you loved our Whole Lotta Bacon Burger, be sure to try our NEW Bacon Cheddar Crispy Chicken Sandwich to get your tangy bacon sauce fix!”

Johnson leads Applebee’s culinary team, which has been testing more than 300 menu items, according to the chain. In April, Applebee’s released its Whole Lotta Bacon Burger (1,580 calories), which, like the new crispy chicken sandwich, features a tangy bacon sauce.
