Review: White Castle - Chicken & Waffle Slider

White Castle's Chicken & Waffle Slider features a breaded chicken breast topped with country gravy and bacon crumbles between two warm Belgian waffles.

I bought one for $2.69. It used to be available chainwide but is now listed as available in "select regions."

The waffles were pretty nicely toasted and were soft and crumbly inside. I liked it better than the other waffle breakfast sandwich I've tried (which was soft) and the Waffle Taco as well (which was a little oily from being fried). It was pretty sweet. I'd put it on the McGriddle level of sweetness.

The sweetness was counter-balanced by the saltiness of the breaded chicken and the bits of bacon. The chicken was ground rather than a whole cut but was surprisingly thick, moist, and meaty. The breading was just lightly crisp and lightly seasoned.

The bacon was not so crisp and fairly mild. I likelove bacon but wouldn't have missed it here. The gravy was similarly weak, imparting just a little creaminess.

Overall, while far from perfect, White Castle's Chicken & Waffle Sliders hit the mark where it counts--the chicken and the waffle.
