McDonald’s preformed a large change to their menu awhile back and when they did, the addition of the Premium Buttermilk Crispy Chicken Sandwich came to the stores. The Buttermilk Crispy Chicken Sandwich is a tender, juicy, filet made with 100% chicken breast meat, real buttermilk and no artificial colors, plus fresh tomato, crisp leaf lettuce and mayonnaise, all atop our delectable artisan roll.
Seeing the sandwich when I first opened the wrapper, the chicken looked so dark I did a double take because I actually thought it was a quarter pound burger patty instead of the chicken breast. Chicken was likely a little over cooked causing the color to be like that and the chicken sandwich to be a little harder than I think they anticipated. There was good amount of lettuce on the sandwich but was a large romaine vein still attached. Sandwich contained the nice large McDonald’s tomato slice that I like, but the tomato was a little hard around the core so I wound up having to cut that away to make eating the tomato more enjoyable.
My mayo was typical McDonalds application of mayo: a large glob in one spot. I never think their device that they use to put the mayo on works very well to get a nice even coating over the entire sandwich. I had to use a french fry to spread around the mayo to avoid some very gross bites that would have been completely full of mayo and eliminate the bites that would have been very dry with no sauce.
I don’t particularly think the sandwich itself was bad but I think it was more so the manner in which it was prepared. Overcooked chicken. Romaine vein. Bad tomato slice. Large glob of mayo. I’d like to try it again and see if they could get it better the next time around.
