If you are not a fan of ranch dressing, then you will not like Wendy’s items that they are promoting this month. They are featuring their Asiago Ranch Chicken Club Sandwich and also Bacon Ranch Fries. Their Asiago Ranch Chicken Club is served 3 different ways, with Homestyle (crispy chicken), Grilled and Spicy being your three options. Wendy’s Asiago Ranch Chicken Club features a tender, all-white meat chicken breast topped with thick-cut Applewood Smoked Bacon, Asiago cheese, creamy ranch sauce, hand-leafed lettuce, and hand-sliced tomatoes. Since I was going to opt for the fries as my side item, I went ahead and decided it would be best to cut back and go with the Grilled version of the Asiago Ranch Chicken Club.
The Asiago Ranch Chicken Club came out hot and fresh with their new bun that I really enjoy. The chicken was moist, the tomato was a nice slab that covered the whole sandwich and the creamy ranch adds a nice ranch tasting but with slightly garlicky hint to it. My only problem with it was the bacon. My pieces of bacon, though flavorful, were very hard. I got into one of these bacon slices with my front tooth and thought I may have chipped it on that hard piece of bacon. Fresher bacon would have made this meal a lot better off.
The perfect sidekick to the Asiago Ranch Chicken Club is finally here. Bacon Ranch Fries! The new Bacon Ranch Fries combine Applewood smoked bacon, a delicious Italian 3-cheese blend, and creamy ranch sauce all atop Wendy’s hot and crispy natural-cut fries. These fries actually surprised me by also coming with that Italian 3 cheese blend. I was expecting 3 ingredients, Bacon, Ranch and Fries.. but the Italian 3 cheese blend is what made it for me! That salty kick that the Parmesan gave was the perfect addition to these! I had just the right amount of ranch to get some on every fry but not so much that it completely over powered this side dish. Again with this, the bacon was overly hard and was the only part made these not very enjoyable to eat.
Overall decent meal, but hopefully next time they do a better job and handing out some fresh bacon. Your teeth will enjoy that!
