Burger King’s Italian Royal Crispy Hen sandwich options a crispy-fried rooster breast filet served with marinara sauce and melted mozzarella cheese on a toasted potato bun.
The sandwich goes for $6.09 close to me however I used a coupon and received it as a part of a combo with small fries and a drink for $7.
Out of the wrapper, I used to be struck by how waxy the cheese seemed to be. Whereas it had an honest thickness, it did not actually ooze or stretch. It added a little bit of richness and creaminess to the sandwich.
The rooster was moist inside however not juicy (and paled compared to the earlier Ch’King, which was usually bigger and higher high quality when it comes to taste and texture). The breading was frivolously crispy the place it wasn’t lined in sauce or cheese however was soggy in any other case. As is typical, it was simply frivolously seasoned.
The marinara sauce got here on each the highest and backside bun and supplied a barely seasoned, candy and tangy stewed tomato taste. It was pretty thick and clung to the sandwich effectively with out dripping a lot (if in any respect). It offered the majority of the flavour for the sandwich.
The potato bun supplied a barely richer taste versus your common quick meals burger bun and a moister, softer texture.
Total, Burger King’s Italian Royal Crispy Hen was good sufficient and akin to the chain’s earlier Italian rooster sandwiches though it may use a tad extra cheese or have some parmesan sprinkled in for a further taste be aware. In comparison with Wendy’s present rooster parmesan-type sandwich, it is extra flavorful as a result of additional sauce however the Wendy’s model provides higher textures and higher cheese.
