Popeyes Chicken Nuggets Review

Popeyes is known for their deliciously crispy, cajun spiced fried chicken that can be ordered mild or spicy, so we knew these nuggets would be good.

You can get Popeyes chicken nuggets alone or as part of an 8-piece or 12-piece combo meal. Most of our rankers opted for the combo meal to get the side and biscuit.

Just look at how crispy those nuggets are!

Popeyes chicken nuggets proved to be large chunks of real white meat chicken battered and fried into nugget perfection. The flavor and texture is most similar to their mild chicken tenders. It made for very flavorful and crispy bites of chicken like you can only find at Popeyes.

Our reviewers went crazy over these and rated them highly. We could not get over how crispy, meaty, and delicious these are. No bland, soggy nuggets here!

The only disappointment for some of us is that they don’t have a spicy version of these yet, but you can easily add an extra kick with some of their sauces, such as Sweet Heat or Mardi Gras Mustard, so it isn’t a big deal.

If you love the flavor of their chicken, you need to try Popeyes Chicken Nuggets immediately. Seriously, run to Popeyes!
