We Tried The New McDonald’s Crispy Chicken Sandwich, And It’s No Popeye’s

McDonald's Crispy Chicken Sandwich

McDonald’s is the latest fast food restaurant looking to take on the almighty Popeye’s in the chicken sandwich wars, and I was honestly excited to see what the Golden Arches could come up with given their unlimited resources. Could they come up with a better chicken sandwich than their Louisiana neighbors?

Spoiler alert – Not even close!

Now in case you missed the news, McDonald’s is serving up three versions of their Crispy Chicken Sandwich – Crispy, Spicy and Deluxe:

Their Crispy Chicken Sandwich features a crispy, juicy, tender fillet made with all-white meat chicken served up on a toasted, buttery potato roll with some crinkle cut pickles. For those wanting heat, the Spicy Chicken Sandwich adds spicy pepper sauce to the mix.

Looking for a little extra somethin’ in the toppings department? Order the Deluxe Chicken Sandwich, which is served with shredded lettuce, Roma tomatoes and mayo.

While I quite enjoy Popeye’s Spicy Chicken Sandwich, my go-to is their regular sandwich, so that’s what I decided to go with at McDonald’s, their regular Crispy Chicken Sandwich.

Unfortunately, it was a total disappointment, as both the chicken and bun were super dry, and there wasn’t much going on in the crunch department either. Since I brought it home, I tried adding some mayo to see if it would help, but it didn’t. The sandwich also left a bit of a nasty aftertaste. Honestly, the fancy chicken sandwich they had a few years ago was light years better than this thing, I don’t understand.

Ironically, I’ve seen people on Twitter talking about how great this new sandwich is, so either my McDonald’s isn’t cooking it right, or those guys are morons. (EDIT: I went to a different McDonald’s a few days later, and their sandwich was equally bad)

Better luck next time guys. For me, I’m sticking to Popeye’s, Chick-fil-A, and Wendy’s, those are my top 3. I’ve also got to still try the new KFC chicken sandwich, but I hear it isn’t that great either.
