Battle of the Chicken Sandwiches: part 2

On today’s post, we continue on our quest to find the best chicken sandwich. The following restaurants are popular national fast food chains.  Is my writing starting to sound sterile?  Lol, it’s been a rough week.

First up,

KFC’s Nashville Hot Chicken Sandwich 7.5/10

Meat to bread ratio was decent, the spice level was mild.  Overall, the chicken was good, but the sandwich was fairly small.  I wasn’t unimpressed, but if we’re keeping Popeye’s spicy chicken sandwich as the bar, then this sandwich missed the mark.


Chick-Fil-A 7/10

I opted for a spicy chicken sandwich rather than the deluxe sandwich.  I probably should have added some kind of cheese or condiments, but I didn’t realize how utterly plain it would be.  On that note, having it so plain did highlight the chicken.  The chicken patty was delicious with a great texture, but still not on par with Popeye’s.


Wendy’s Spicy Chicken Sandwich 6/10


I don’t get the hype around this sandwich.  Don’t get me wrong, it was a good sandwich and I would certainly eat it again, but would I crave it?  Probably not.  The condiments definitely lent a cooling effect to contrast the chicken, and the bun wasn’t too thick.  Overall, it was simply “okay”.

Side note: Wendy’s fries are trash. I dare you to change my mind.


McDonald’s Spicy Crispy Chicken Sandwich 5/10

If you know me, you know that I LOVE McDonald’s. I truly truly love them; their fries, coke, apple pies, chicken nuggets, burgers, chicken tenders, breakfast….what’s not to love?  Answer: this chicken sandwich.  Now, I have heard tremendously good things about their non spicy chicken sandwich, but this was mediocre.

The patty was surprisingly large and extended past the bun (usually a good sign), but that sauce was not something I would ever want again. My husband and I could both taste a berry flavored after-taste with the sauce; it doesn’t make sense, but it was not an appealing flavor.

Thanks for stopping by! I’ll post more as I continue this journey!
