But a closer inspection shows the breading doesn’t look as jaw-rattling as the coating on the popular poultry sandwich. Within that not-as-crunchy-looking breading, which the chain calls a crispy southern coating, is the new flounder fish fillet that’s seasoned in a blend of mild and spicy Cajun seasoning. The rest of the ingredients include crisp barrel cured pickles and tartar sauce on a warm and to...
