McDonald’s Artisan Grilled Chicken Review

mcdonalds chicken artisan sandwich

As we said in 2016, one of the fast food trends to watch for is more descriptive names for new fast food menu items. Well, try this one on for size: McDonald’s Maple Bacon Dijon with Artisan Grilled Chicken Sandwich. What a mouthful!

Every few years it seems McDonald’s takes another run at building a better chicken sandwich. They usually fail, as described in our 2015 review of their then “premium” sandwich. And a link in that article back to 2011’s sorry state of affairs. Well, chicken lovers rejoice: there is a better chicken sandwich now at McDonald’s as part of the Signature Crafted lineup. It’s not great, but it is better. Read on.

C’mon McDonald’s – Make Chicken Right!

Why is it that McDonald’s cannot master a decent chicken sandwich?  I tried the Chicken Club premium sandwich the other day.  Nice touch that you can opt for grilled rather than fried, but the kudos stop there.  Look at what I got:

Does this look appetizing to you?  The sandwich was as boring, dry, and tasteless as it looks in the pic.  Built from the bottom up, the ingredients are assembled as heel, chicken breast, swiss slice, tomato, lettuce leaf, mayo, and crown.  Interestingly, these are the same items in the superior Carl’s Jr. and Hardee’s Chicken Club.  But while Carl makes his sandwich juicy and flavorful, McDonald’s take is bland and uninspiring.

McDonald’s – it is time for you to step up and put together a chicken sandwich worthy of your status at the top of the (fast) food chain.
