Hot dog! Joey Chestnut sets a Raising Cane’s chicken-eating record

Joey Chestnut, well known for his incredibly hot-puppy-chomping prowess, on Wednesday set the benchmark for having rooster fingers.

The man nicknamed “Joey Jaws” scarfed down 44 Raising Cane’s marinated, hand-battered rooster fingers in 5 minutes to seize the restaurant’s 1st aggressive-consuming crown.

The location was the Las Vegas Strip, where by Elevating Cane’s has opened a flagship two-tale restaurant, and the occasion was livestreamed.

Chestnut, who on July 4 gained his 15th title at Nathan’s Well known Fourth of July Intercontinental Hot Canine Eating Contest at Coney Island by gobbling 63 pet dogs (with buns), claimed prior to this contest that rooster can be additional tough than franks.

“Fried foods is a little little bit more challenging mainly because you just can’t h2o it down,” the former San Jose and Vallejo resident instructed Fox News Digital. “But I have a approach down for rooster fingers. I have been education.”

He included: “The rooster is mouth watering. So that will make it simpler.”
