Popeyes is celebrating the start of summer with the introduction of its Magnolia Blossom Chicken. Inspired by the shape of the Louisiana state flower, this fried chicken dinner features sweet citrus flavors.

Available for a limited-time, Popeyes Magnolia Blossom Chicken is made from white meat chicken that has been marinated with a blend of sweet orange flavors. The chicken is then cut and arranged in a shape that resembles the petals of a magnolia flower. This design creates diappable tenders that can be enjoyed with the spicy orange dipping sauce served on the side. As Popeyes' Chief Marketing Officer Hector Muñoz explains, "Magnolia Blossom Chicken delivers the flavors of a Louisiana summer in every pullable, dippable bite, and we know guests are going to love it."

The new dish not only celebrates the company's Louisiana roots, but it also serves as a clever way to mark the start of summer.
