McDonald’s New Supreme Chicken Sandwich: Grilled or Crispy?

Diana Chan August 9, 2011 Fast Food, Food for Thought, Sandwich

More new sandwiches from Mc Donalds! They recently introduced their line of sandwiches called “Supreme Chicken Sandwiches”. There are 3 variations of this sandwich – Mushroom + Swiss, Tangy Thai, and the BLT. You have the option of choosing between grilled or crispy chicken meat.

If you are trying to be slightly healthy, grilled is the way to go. If you are like me and like to be bad…crispy is good. Since I was sharing all the sandwiches with M, we got Mc Donalds to cut all the sandwiches in half. All the sandwiches are in a longer form like a sub, so it’s not like the usual round sandwiches.

There isn’t too much information about these sandwiches online, so most of the promotions are seen in stores.

The Mushroom and Swiss sandwich was really good. I am a mushroom lover, so I will be a bit biased on this one. It has lettuce, grilled mushrooms, swiss cheese, savory mayo sauce, and the grilled chicken in a soft ciabatta bun.

This has a strong taste of mushroom, which complements the meat nicely. I think this would be much better with a grilled chicken breast instead. The fried chicken meat reminded me of the meat from the McChicken sandwich.

The Tangy Thai Sandwich has a light covering of the spicy thai sauce with cucumbers and roasted peppers in the ciabatta bun. This was very interesting and had a good taste as well. The sauce was slightly sweet, but with the cucumbers give a nice refreshing crunch.

The BLT Sandwich has bacon, lettuce, tomato, mayo with a grilled chicken breast in a ciabatta bun. This doesn’t seem so different from the usual items, I feel like this has been done before since its so common. It still tasted pretty good and the grilled chicken breast is the best choice for this sandwich.

Overall, pretty good line of chicken sandwiches from McDonalds. It is quite expensive for a little over $5 per sandwich, but it is yummy.

Sean of Sean’s Adventures In Flavor Town also wrote a review on these sandwiches as well and it’s an interesting read filled with a curly hair! Check it out!

  • I’m glad you and M got hair free sandwiches!, I think if I got that mushroom melt instead of the one I got it might have been a better out come!. Great post

    Hair filled food is always so nasty!

  • I found the Spicy Thai to be rather gross as I don’t like cucumbers or red peppers on my sandwiches.

      Those ingredients are new to their line of offerings, so perhaps it just didn’t sync well with your taste. Did you try the other ones?
