Popeyes released a chicken sandwich in hope of eclipsing Chick-fil-A in the chicken sandwich game.

The classic chicken joint released the sandwich earlier this month and the internet has been rife with arguments about which is better,

It started to get real with Chick-fil-A calling their sandwich the original on their Twitter. Popeyes had a response.

Chick-fil-A has been considered to have one of the best fried chicken sandwiches in the fast food world, but Business Insider's Irene Jiang put the new Popeyes chicken sandwich number one on her list of fried-chicken sandwiches. The Twitter world also seems to be in favor of the new menu item as well.

The debate continues.
