A couple of weeks ago, one of my sisters and I visited a McDonald’s restaurant in West Hartford, Connecticut. It had been a couple of months since I last ate at a McDonald’s restaurant and I wanted to try something I hadn’t eaten before.
Among the items I ordered was a Bacon Cheddar McChicken sandwich. The sandwich was so good I decided to write a review of it.
Presented here in an effort to assist the consumer, is an article in which the author reviews the Bacon Cheddar McChicken sandwich that is served at McDonald’s restaurants everywhere.
The Bacon Cheddar McChicken sandwich from McDonald’s is a good-sized sandwich. Sometimes I find chicken sandwiches from fast food restaurants to be too big. To me, this sandwich is just the right size. When I recently ate one, it satisfied my appetite, without leaving me feeling overly full.
The regular price charged for one McDonald’s Bacon Cheddar McChicken sandwich is approximately $1.99. Considering its good size and great flavor, the price seems very reasonable to me. In fact, I think the sandwich was worth every penny I paid for it.
Texture / Consistency
When I order chicken sandwiches from fast food restaurants, sometimes the chicken seems sort of dried-out. That is not the case with this sandwich.
The chicken patty in the Bacon Cheddar McChicken sandwich is nice and moist. A mild, melted cheddar cheese slice adds another dimension of pleasing texture and the pieces of bacon are actually cooked, not under-cooked, as is often the case with fast food restaurant bacon. The mouth-feel offered by this sandwich is indeed quite pleasing.
