Detroit Wing Company has created its first two chicken sandwiches, the Classic and Honey Butter Hot. They both feature a four-ounce hand-battered and crispy-fried chicken breast, mayo, dill pickles and a variety of proprietary spices and seasonings on a potato bun.
The Honey Butter Hot sandwich comes coated in a honey butter hot rub. The sandwiches were in development for more than a year as DWC corporate chef Aaron Cozadd worked with the culinary team and secretly taste-tested recipes with a number of its top customers to get the flavor combinations just right, using dry rubs as opposed to sauces.
“After initially teasing the idea of offering a chicken sandwich, the anticipation from our customers was palpable,” Cozadd said in a company press release. “We worked in secret with some of our most loyal guests to develop the flavors using premium ingredients to create a top-quality chicken sandwich at a great price.”
Both chicken sandwiches will be available at all DWC locations in Michigan, Ohio and Florida for $7.95 each. As the chicken breasts are hand-battered daily, the sandwiches are available each day until they sell out, which remains true to DWC’s mantra that all menu items be fresh and made from scratch each and every day.
“Quality and consistency aren’t just buzzwords; they’re the foundation for everything we do in the kitchen,” Gus Malliaras, founder of Detroit Wing Company, said in the release. “From the freshness of our ingredients to the precision of our cooking techniques, every detail matters when it comes to creating the best possible experience for our customers, and that includes making the best chicken sandwich available, and we did it.”
Founded in 2015, Detroit Wing Company offers 20 signature sauces for wings, boneless wings and chicken tenders.
