If you’re like us, sometimes you just need a quick one-stop meal that will keep the whole family happy, from picky toddlers to hangry teenagers. There’s nothing like a chicken sandwich to fit that bill. Everyone loves one.

That’s why we were excited to hear about Blake’s Lotaburger’s latest menu addition: two new lightly breaded chicken sandwiches.

We’re always trying to incorporate more local purchases into our routine, so going to one of the bigger fast-food restaurants for a chicken sandwich fix never felt like a great meal option.

Blake’s is one of our favorite local restaurant chains, and their chicken sandwiches are convenient and high-quality. Everything we look for in a quick family meal! Plus, who doesn’t remember visiting a Blake’s as a kid? It’s a uniquely New Mexican family tradition that we are happy to pass on to our own kids.


Blake's chicken sandwichesBoth of Blake’s new chicken sandwiches are delicious and unique. They feature two lightly breaded chicken tenderloins on a gourmet bun. This makes the sandwich feel lighter, while also offering more chicken. Along with the high quality ingredients, these sandwiches are a go-to, family-friendly meal without sacrificing any flavor.

The Blake’s Chicken Sandwich has pickles and Blake’s sauce, a downright delicious proprietary sauce infused with Blake’s own Hatch green chile. You will want to slather it on everything you eat from now on, trust us.

The Ranch Chicken Sandwich is a great option for kids who don’t like anything spicy. It has pickled onions and ranch dressing. A classically great option.

I think I speak for all of us when I say we are just exhausted from cooking every meal of every day for our family. The planning, the cooking, the guaranteed child complaining about the meal, and the clean-up. Give yourself a break and order in.

The Blake’s chicken sandwiches (and everything on the Blake’s menu) are perfect for a quick weeknight meal or if you are ready to celebrate the weekend. With one stop, you can keep everyone happy. Blake’s offers online ordering and you can easily pick it up, without having to take your kids out of their car seats. Clean up is minimal and you won’t have any dishes to wash when you get home. This will definitely be our go-to for when I just can’t imagine cooking another meal!


If you’re a New Mexico native, you likely grew up going to Blake’s. Everything about the restaurant reminds us of being a kid in Albuquerque. A trip there is full of nostalgia and fond memories of family outings. It’s a tradition we’re excited to pass on to our kids. We’re glad to see Blake’s evolving their menu options to keep up with modern tastes.

Stop by any Blake’s Lotaburger location to try these chicken sandwiches. We recommend you use their easy online ordering option or calling in your order. They even offer delivery!
