Review: Burger King - Flame Grilled Chicken Burger

Burger King's Flame Grilled Chicken Burger features a flame-grilled, ground chicken burger patty, tomatoes, lettuce, mayo, ketchup, pickles, and onions on a toasted brioche-style bun.

I bought two for $5. It's $3.99 if you get just one.

The chicken patty was a really good diameter and thickness, especially compared to the available beef options of the two for $5 deal. The edge of the patty was just slightly bigger than the edge of the bun. The meat was a little overly fine but was juicy and flavorful with some smoky charring that lets you know it was cooked with fire.

Other than that, the chicken burger was very much like a Whopper with the same components although the brioche-style bun lends a slightly more premium, smoother, denser feel.

The ketchup was a little heavy and the lettuce was not very fresh and not so lively, but the tomatoes and onions were of good quality. The pickles were surprisingly plentiful (maybe too much so for some) with an even layer across the burger. Fortunately, they were mild with a nice, watery crunch to them.

Overall, I enjoyed Burger King's Flame Grilled Chicken Burger quite a bit, especially the juicy and meaty patty. The texture was a little too smooth if they're going for a coarser hamburger-like feel though. Still, it reminds me of the discontinued Chicken Whopper (although that came with a grilled chicken filet rather than a ground patty) in a good way.

If looking to consume less calories or carbs heading into the new year, you can also get it without the bun:
