Bird’s the word. The Chick’n Shack, Shake Shack’s first chicken sandwich, has landed in all United Arab Emirates Shacks.
The Chick’n Shack is a crispy 100% all-natural (hormone free and free from antibiotics) crispy chicken sandwich with lettuce, pickles and herb mayo. This now-permanent menu item made its first appearance in New York City’s Brooklyn Shake Shacks last summer.
The inspiration behind the Chick’n Shack lies in Shake Shack’s heritage as a modern “roadside” burger stand. “The introduction of a chicken sandwich marks a new era for Shake Shack, staying true to our core menu while continuing to innovate new items based on the feedback of our guests from all round the world including the UAE,” said Shake Shack CEO, Randy Garutti. The Chick’n Shack also furthers Shake Shack’s commitment to serve fresh, simple, high-quality food at a great value through their mission to Stand For Something Good®.
“The Chick’n Shack embodies our modern approach to fine casual American cooking,” said Shake Shack Culinary Director Mark Rosati. “It’s about providing a simple, pleasurable, uncomplicated experience, but with high-quality, responsibly sourced ingredients. It wasn’t until we found the chicken sandwich to be as flavorful as our ShackBurger that we knew we’d crafted something special that had earned its place on the menu. Since we introduced the Chick’n Shack in Brooklyn, guests have been asking us to bring it to all Shacks, and from previous launches we know that our guests in United Arab Emirates are huge fans of the brand and we couldn’t be more excited to bring to them our new creation.”
The Chick’n Shack, Shake Shack’s modern twist on a classic, is crafted from a cage-free chicken breast—no hormones and free from anitbiotics—slow-cooked, hand-dipped in Shack-made batter, dredged through seasoned flour and crisp-fried. The Chick’n Shack is topped with pickles, crisp shredded lettuce and a tangy Shack-made herb mayo made with chives, parsley and thyme. The sandwich is served on a pillowy Martin’s Potato Roll, the same non-GMO bun that has cradled the classic ShackBurger since Shake Shack’s inception.
