The chicken sandwich war continues…
McDonald’s is saying goodbye to their buttermilk chicken and launching a sandwich that features a brand new crispy, juicy, tender fillet made with all-white meat chicken. They are serving it up three ways – Crispy, Spicy and Deluxe:
- Crispy Chicken Sandwich: For those who want to keep things simple – topped with crinkle cut pickles and served on a new toasted, buttered potato roll.
- Spicy Crispy Chicken Sandwich: For those craving some heat – served with a Spicy Pepper Sauce and crinkle cut pickles on a toasted potato roll.
- Deluxe Crispy Chicken Sandwich: For those looking for a little extra somethin’ in the toppings department– served with shredded lettuce, Roma tomatoes and mayo.
At first bite, that bun is pillow soft and delicious. The chicken is perfectly crisp and very juicy. It definitely goes head-to-head with Chic-Fil-A. With this new bun though, McD’s reigns supreme. I do appreciate the slightly bigger crinkle cut pickles compared to the ones they’ve been using across the menu since birth. As a whole, I’m really diggin’ the new line up. I firmly believe that McFans everywhere will be equally impressed. Okay, everyone is probably mostly interested in the sauce on the Spicy Crispy Sandwich. It’s cool. It’s has some heat but nothing too extreme. Mighty Sauce is much hotter. To me, It tastes like a creamy Buffalo sauce with a little less tang. I’d ask for extra right away if I were you. Out of the new three, I would probably only get the plain Crispy Chicken Sandwich again just to pour on one of my favorite sauces that they offer for the McNuggets. The Bawse move though is to order the Deluxe Crispy Chicken Sandwich and add the crinkle cut pickles and the new spicy sauce in addition to what already comes on the sandwich. Yeaaaaah! Thank me later.
Speaking of nugget sauce. I’ve been told that the customers demanded the return of hot mustard. So, McD’s brought it back like 6-8 months ago, but apparently no one seems to be aware of this.
