Review: 7-Eleven - Hot Chicken Sandwich

7-Eleven's Hot Chicken Sandwich features a breaded white meat chicken patty, pickles, and a honey mustard barbecue sauce on a buttery split-top bun.

I bought one for $1.99.

The chicken sported a nice, crispy shell of breading. When I bit it, there was actually a discernible crunch that you can chalk up to the turbo convection oven they use to heat these up.

Inside, the chicken was moist and appeared to be a whole cut instead of the ground stuff, or at least a combination of the two. Whatever the case, there was a sinewy quality to it. The patty was more than wide enough to cover the bun.

The bun offered a slight upgrade from your run-of-the-mill burger bun with a slightly higher moisture level and soft texture. The butteriness is very light and they didn't toast it so the spongy texture was almost uniform all around.

The pickles just a little thicker than standard and good for a slightly sweet tang and watery crunch.

The sauce appeared to be 7-Eleven's take on Chick-fil-A sauce. It's similarly sweet and tangy but less creamy and heavier on the mustard notes. The combination worked well and the extra mustard punched up the whole sandwich to good effect.

Overall, 7-Eleven's Hot Chicken Sandwich was really nice. The chicken patty was suitably crunchy and flavorful and the tasty sauce sets it apart from other similar sandwiches.
