Chicken sandwiches have been QUITE the hot topic over the last year or so, and the hype honestly doesn't seem to be dying down any time soon. Case in point? Burger King has been spotted testing some delicious-looking, hand-breaded chicken sandwiches in some locations and they could give other fast food spots a run for their money.
We first spotted this news on Chewboom, after they watched a video from YouTuber RodrickEats trying out one of the sandwiches. Though Burger King does currently sell chicken sandwiches, these new ones look crispier and more akin to one from say, Popeyes, than their typical chicken patty situation. You can choose from a Hand-Breaded Original Crispy Chicken Sandwich, which has pickles, or add lettuce and tomato. You can also apparently get a Cheddar Bacon Crispy Chicken Sandwich, which is what Rodrick went for in his video.
Rodrick gave the sandwich pretty great reviews over on his channel, saying that the chicken was flavorful, if a little dry. YouTuber theendorsement tried both the Original and the Cheddar Bacon varieties and gave both almost-perfect reviews, and called the latter "one of the best fast food chicken sandwiches on the market."
Now, this appears to be a regional test (Chewboom said one was near Phoenix!), so don't go running to your local Burger King trying to find this just yet. Burger King, like other chains, tends to run small tests like these to see how they do, but from the looks of it, we're thinking this one will be very successful! We reached out to Burger King to see if we could get any additional info and will be sure to update this post if we hear back. For now, well, keep an eye out!
