Filed under: Restaurants — Tags: — @ June 24, 2004

Popeyes Chicken, second only to KFC in fast-food chicken sales, is now testing no-carb items in 300 of its stores. The “naked” items include both Popeyes Naked Chicken and Popeyes Naked Chicken Popeyes Naked Chicken Strips. If you were wondering what makes the new item naked, here’s the description from Popeyes:

bq. The new Popeyes Naked Chicken offering is an old favorite with a modern twist. The bone-in chicken is marinated, seasoned and then fried to a crisp, golden brown all without batter and breading.

However, low-carb dieters won’t be able to munch on one of the trademark Popeyes Biscuits… No low-carb version has been announced.
