Lines Filled New York City for the Return of the Popeye's Chicken Sandwich

America loves that chicken from Popeye's.

The Popeye’s chicken sandwich returned to the menu Sunday after a two month absence and as expected, it quickly became a hit.

In New York City, the day after the annual Marathon with the city packed with revelers, Inside Edition found a line of folks who slipped out of work to get their hands on the crispy chicken breast on a brioche bun with pickles.  

The chicken sandwich was introduced last August and disappeared in two weeks.  People have been waiting for its return.

Popeye's posted video with a convoy of trucks saying "this is not a drill....we're fully stocked.

The company says the sandwich is now a permanent menu item.

NFL star Stefon Diggs is wearing Popeye’s inspired cleats and debuted them Sunday, coincidentally the same day the sandwich returned.
