Shake Shack chain adds chicken sandwich to its menu

The new offering
Will the Shake Shack chain, best known for its burgers and shakes, add chicken to its menu for this summer's Saratoga Race Course meet?

Shake Shack, which has year-round and seasonal venues in 81 locations in 13 states and five other countries as well as the seasonal one at Saratoga, has just announced that in addition to its signature burgers it will add a chicken sandwich to its menu at some venues.

The new item is called Chick'n Shack. It is a cage-free, hormone-free chicken breast cooked in buttermilk, dredged in seasoned flour, deep fried, topped with pickles, shredded lettuce, and buttermilk mayo sauce, and served on a soft potato bun. It has been available at the Brooklyn location on a trial basis.

Says company culinary director Mark Rosati, " 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 we couldn’t be more excited to finally do so.”

Shake Shack was created in 2000 by New York City dining entrepreneur Danny Meyer as a food cart outside Madison Square Garden.
