Chicken Sandwich Wars

add a stout beer to the mix and problem solved

Sir Slash:
New Player in town, Burger King's "CH-KING". $5 Gets you either Regular or Spicy. Mediocre effort in my humble opinion sad to say.  :'(

Jack's introduced fried chicken last month, upon customer request (supposedly, or that's how it's being marketed) -- which I know about because a Jack's opened up about 15 minutes south of here back around January.

Mom and I tried their new fried chicken sandwich and... it was edible. Not bad, just edible. Lots of chicken meat, but white breast meat is hard to make tasty, and neither their bun nor their breading helps much. Comes standard with a couple of pickle slices, as with Chick-fil-a, which does admittedly help but it's no Chick-fil-a sandwich. I'd rather eat something else there in the future, but I do allow that it has a lot of meat for the money.

Still haven't gotten around to Wendy's new chicken sandwich, despite a new one of those opening up last year (bad timing!) about 25 minutes south of here, which I pass on a semi-regular basis -- though rarely by myself anymore, and Mom has no more interest in eating at Wendy's. Meanwhile, the local KFC on the corner, only a strong par 5 south of the new Wendy's, closed last year, so I haven't gotten their new sandwich either. The closest Popeyes is more than 45 minutes south, so still nothing from there yet either, though I'm very interested.

I used to love BK, but their food quality has been slowly dipping for a long time, and so I expect their entry in the chicken-sandwich war to be almost as tasteless as their marketing for the sandwich. ;) But I wouldn't be adverse to hearing better about it; the more good sandwiches in the world, chicken or otherwise, the better.
