In parts of the country, you can’t mention a chicken sandwich without invoking praise for Chick-fil-A.
Its sandwich has reigned supreme for a while, and McDonald’s is taking notice.
The iconic fast-food burger chain overhauled its chicken sandwich with a new buttermilk recipe that it hopes can stand up to Chick-fil-A’s fowl hegemony.
We decided to put the two chicken-sandwich rivals to the ultimate test. Can McDonald’s iteration take on the reigning champion of chicken sandwiches?
So here they are, safe, sound, and steaming hot in their respective packages.
McDonald’s clearly pushes the descriptions of the food a bit more, while Chick-fil-A relies simply on its name to get the idea of tender crispy chicken across.
Let the chicken championship commence!
The McDonald’s offering has cooled a bit in its cardboard box, while Chick-fil-A’s insulated baggie keeps the sandwich steaming hot, even after being delivered to our offices.
