Fast-food chain Jack in the Box is expanding its chicken menu with two new chicken sandwiches, the Cluck Sandwich and the Cluck Deluxe Sandwich.

The fast-food chain already has several chicken sandwiches in its lineup, but the new Cluck Sandwich rollout comes on the heels of the infamous chicken sandwich war last year between newcomer Popeyes and longtime standard Chick-fil-A.

Other fast-food brands have since joined in on the chicken sandwich dispute, including Wendy’s and Church’s Chicken. McDonald’s is also set to join the contentious battle early next year when the fast-food giant unveils its new fried chicken sandwich.

Jack in the Box’s new chicken sandwich lineup consists of the Cluck Sandwich and the Cluck Deluxe Sandwich.
