To shine some sizzle on the best fried chicken sandwiches in America, we’re thrilled to announce the launch of the Louisiana Fried Chicken Sandwich Challenge — a national tour that will pit home chefs’ best fried chicken sandwiches against the reigning champion, The “Big Swagu” Chicken Sandwich, created by Louisiana Fish Fry’s Chief Fry Officer, Marcus Spears.

The Challenge will take place in six cities across the country. For a chance to compete, local home chefs are first asked to post a pic or video of their best fried chicken sandwich with a short description online. Selected entrants will then be invited to compete at the live event in their city, where a single winner will be chosen by judges and audience votes. The finalists from each market will compete live in the New York City finale in October. In addition to the golden skillet trophy, the grand prize winner will serve as VP of Fried Chicken alongside Marcus Spears for one year and join the brand next February for football’s biggest game, to be played in New Orleans.

Post a pic or video of your fried chicken sandwich with a short description of the sandwich and its ingredients on Facebook, Instagram, X, or TikTok, tagging @lafishfry with the hashtags #LFFChickenChallenge and the local event hashtag as seen below.
