Southern Style Chicken Sandwich

Seeking a late afternoon snack, after a long day in which I forsake a lunch break, I headed over to McDonalds.  My plan was to pick up a $.99 coke and a honey mustard snack wrap, but when I looked at the menu I was greeted by an unfamiliar sight.  It was called the Southern Style Chicken Sandwich.  Intrigued, I ordered one.  I didn’t even ask what was on it.  Had I, it probably wouldn’t have made any difference. 


The sandwich was quite simple.  It consisted of a bun, a fried chicken breast and a couple pickles.  If you’re thinking that sounds a lot like a Chick-fil-A sandwich, you’re exactly right.  This HAS TO BE their take on the greatness that is a Chick-fil-A sandwich.  All in all, it wasn’t half bad.  In fact, it was quite enjoyable.  The Chicken was moist and tasty, and the breading was crunchy and flavorful.  I even ate the pickles, which if you know me is quite a feet.  Initially, I was afraid that the sandwich’s lack of sauce would be noticeable, but the flavor of the chicken and the pickles were more than sufficient. 


Now, if I haven’t sold you yet, what I’m about to say ought to do it.  The combo itself comes in at a low $3.99, which is an unheard of price for a meal these days. You cannot get fries, a drink and a sandwich anywhere for that price.  My typical Carl’s Jr. lunches run closer to the $7 mark.  Ouch!  This is definitely a deal.


So, if you’re ever looking for a Chick-fil-A style chicken sandwich in LA County, you can’t go wrong with this. It’s no substitute for an actual Chick-fil-A but it’ll do in-between those trips to the OC and Riverside.

  1. Sweet! That price is amazing. Hope it lasts. I had two honey mustard snacks wraps for lunch, but I was not present in-store to be swayed by the oh-so-tempting juicy print ads.


  2. Wow – this was everything you promised it would be. De-lic-ious. I would gladly have another…maybe a late-night post Lectures dinner in Calabasas.


  3. Oh no. I didn’t need to know this. HOWEVER, when IS Chic-Fil-A coming to LA? We are in sore need of the best fast food joing EVER!
