It's a battle of the chicken sandwiches.

A week after Popeyes first nationwide chicken sandwich was released , the fast-food chain started a Twitter feud with chicken competitor Chick-fil-A.

On Monday, Chick-fil-A, which launched a new item of its own last week with its Mac & Cheese , tweeted: "Bun + Chicken + Pickles = all the (heart emoji) for the original."

Popeyes retweeted the tweet and wrote "... y’all good?"

The Twitterverse was a flurry with some saying they preferred Popeyes' new sandwich to Chick-fil-A's, which is best known for its chicken sandwiches and has been voted as America's favorite fast-food chain in surveys .

Wendy's got into the action Monday with this tweet : "Y’all out here fighting about which of these fools has the second best chicken sandwich."
