 Church's Smokehouse Half Chicken with biscuit and sides
The Smokehouse Half Chicken is one of the the new items on the Church's chicken menu.  

ATLANTA- Church’s Chicken is launching a new Smokehouse Half Chicken this summer. Instead of staying with its signature way of preparing chicken, the company will serve smoky, seasoned half chicken with zero batter or breading.

“When a fried chicken brand like Church’s says they’re going to offer an unbattered and unbreaded option, it’s a big deal,” said Jennifer Chasteen, senior director of brand and product strategy at Church’s Chicken. “Delivering a simplified preparation method on a half chicken is something we’re able to do because of our long-standing tradition of quality and innovation. Guests tell us that our chicken tastes great with or without its crunchy hand-battered exterior.”

The Smokehouse Half Chicken will be available at participating Church’s restaurants beginning June 27 and continuing through July 31.

The pricing for the Half Chicken sandwich starts at $3.99.

“Smokehouse Half Chicken is certainly a distinct offering for Church’s and within the broader category,” Chasteen added. “You get right to juicy chicken, with an authentic smoky flavor profile. It’s a tasty twist that’s just right for summer.”

Why sell the smoke house chicken, and the people that like the chicken, have to wait almost a year for it to come back again ,why don't you served the smoke house chicken all year long for customers that like the smokehouse chicken ,and if you can't meet the demands for all your location only let three store in each state sell the smoke house chicken all year long
