Shake Shack might be known for its mouth-watering burgers, but with the introduction of the new ChickenShack, that's about to change. The iconic New York fast food franchise is expanding its menu for a short time with the ChickenShack, which is currently a prototype for a more permanent expansion in the near future.
Described as "a crispy all-natural and antibiotic-free chicken breast with lettuce, pickles and buttermilk herb mayo" by the restaurant, the ChickenShack is an answer to Southern chain Chick-fil-A's $3 chicken sandwich and more casual fine dining alternatives. Although simple enough, the ChickenShack stands out for quality ingredients that focus on flavor and texture more than anything else. People will appreciate this attentiveness to detail as they chow down on the ChickenShack this summer.
