KANSAS CITY — Is it spring chicken season? The perennially popular poultry is popping up on menus every which way — roasted, grilled or fried, homestyle or Nashville hot, in burritos, bowls or brioche buns.
Blimpie has added a pair of sandwiches for a limited time. The Sweet BBQ Chicken sandwich has roasted chicken breast tossed in Sweet Baby Ray’s barbecue sauce, topped with cheddar, spinach and red onions. The Nashville Hot Chicken sandwich has roasted chicken breast tossed in Nashville hot sauce, topped with Swiss cheese, coleslaw, pickles and creamy ranch dressing.
