Are you ready for Shake Shack’s Hot Chick’n?

Let’s not get it twisted, Shake Shack’s Hot Chick’n is not like that lethal level of heat I semi-enjoyed in Nashville.

The Hot Chick’n is a spiced-up version of their Chick’n Shack sandwich.

By spiced up, I mean heat as in “Ay mama!” but still manageable.

The breaded chicken breasts are dusted with a mix of guajillo chile and cayenne pepper.

Then served up in a Martin’s Potato Roll with cherry pepper slaw and pickles.

HOT CHICK’N SEQUEL

It’s not the first time this fella has made an appearance on the menu.

This spicer version of the Chick’n Shack made an appearance for a limited time in 2017 and later in 2018.

But hot sammy didn’t come alone on this go around, it brought Hot Chick’n Bites, Hot Spicy Fries, and a cheese fries version.

There are two levels of heat on the table here: hot and extra hot.

But if you’re like me and prefer a level that you will regret shortly after eating, there is fire.

You’ll need to go through the Shack App, or online can get access to it.

I made the mistake of ordering through one of these third-party delivery companies, not knowing about the fire level’s existence.

Please don’t repeat my rookie mistake.

BITES & FRIES

On the Hot Chick’n Bites side of things, the options for dipping sauces are honey mustard, barbecue, and a new ranch dressing, which now uses that guajillo chile and cayenne pepper mix.

I requested some Shack Shack for dipping and received the saddest dollop of sauce you’ve ever seen in your life.

Now, the tragedy of the Hot Spicy Cheese Fries is that when you have them delivered, it’s not the same thing as enjoying them at the restaurant.

The sauce comes on the side, and you will receive a coagulated version of their delicious cheese sauce.

It’s not their fault (it’s these delivery drivers that take forever with their extra stops), but once you warm it up, everything will be right in the world again.

I loved the Hot Chick’n additions to the shack menu, and I’m looking forward to enjoying it live at the restaurant real soon.

Hopefully with a double dollop of Shack Sauce for dipping.
