Feeling Hot, Hot, Hot! Shake Shack Brings the Heat with the Return of Hot Chick’n

Shake Shack is bringing back the fan favorite Hot Chick’n, a spicy version of the classic Chick’n Shack sandwich and one of Shake Shack’s most requested items to date. The Hot Chick’n is made with real chicken breast (no added hormones or antibiotics, ever) that is slow-cooked in a creamy buttermilk marinade, hand-dipped into Shack-made batter, dredged through seasoned flour and crisp-fried. It’s dusted with a guajillo and cayenne pepper blend, topped with Shack-made cherry-pepper slaw and pickles – all served on a potato bun. This will be Hot Chick’n’s third time returning- and it’s ready to throw down in the chicken sandwich category.

But that’s not all, Hot Chick’n is returning with brand new Hot Chick’n BitesHot Spicy Fries and Hot Spicy Cheese Fries, made with the same guajillo and cayenne pepper dusting. This time, all four Hot Chick’n items are available in two spice levels – hot and extra hot – and will be at Shake Shack locations nationwide (some exclusions may apply) starting September 1 and available for a limited time. 

Insider tip: Not hot enough? Order the Hot Chick’n through the Shack App or order.shakeshack.com and you’ll get access to a third spice level…Fire.
