Fast Food Review: Loaded Chicken Wrap from Popeyes

Anyone that knows me, knows that I do not like spicy food.   Popeyes is famous for their Louisiana-style of cooking with an array of Cajun seasoning and spices.  A visit to Popeyes for me has always been a very rare occasion when I am in the mood for the Popcorn Shrimp meal.  I do love the flavor of Popeyes breading even though it lights my mouth on fire (I know, I’m a wimp).   Because of the spiciness, Popeyes has never been a preferred place for me. I tried the Loaded Chicken Wrap recently and it quickly became a reason to stop by Popeyes more often.

The Loaded Chicken Wrap is on the Popeyes “Big Deals” menu.

Popeyes describes this wrap like this:

This wrap folds a golden, crispy, all-white meat chicken breast tender and Popeyes famous red beans and rice into a warm cheddar tortilla-with a side of Louisiana hot sauce.

Popeyes Loaded Chicken WrapI think that I am addicted to this wrap.   It is a simple wrap, but it has a great combination of flavors.  The chicken tender is moist, and breaded with the Popeyes Cajun seasoned breading which gives it a little heat. Most fast food wraps use the same couple of fillings.  Some lettuce, some tomato and some cheese.  The Popeyes wrap is void of any lettuce/tomato and instead uses the staples, red beans and rice.  The red beans and rice aren’t really anything special, but I think they do a lot to help balance the little bite from the tender.  All of this wrapped in a tasty cheesy tortilla.  I don’t use the Louisiana hot sauce, but it does come on the side if you decide you want more kick.  Loaded Chicken Wrap from Popeyes

The Popcorn Shrimp meal is the only thing I had eaten at Popeye’s before this .  The Loaded Chicken Wrap is now a worthy replacement and at $1.49, it isn’t too hard on your wallet.

Pros: The breaded chicken and red beans and rice make for a nice and unique combination. Inexpensive. Great for grubbing on the go.

Cons: Will take at least 2 to fill you up. Leaves you wanting more. Tons of sodium for not-so-filling wrap.

  1. Did the tortilla taste like cheese to you? When I tried it it just tasted like a plain tortilla or is it really just subtle?

    I don’t know about having two of these to fill me up… seems rather bland. but of course, I have not tried it yet.

    Anyway if I happen to stop by a Popeye’s, I’ll try one of these. $1.49 isn’t too bad and the sodium and fat content are not astronomically high (unless I happen to be eating an entire chicken and seafood box as well…)

    After reading this, I now want to actually go to Popeye’s. We finally got one in town a year or so ago, and I haven’t been by, since we really don’t do fast food. This review makes me want to try it now!
