Review: Arby's - Buffalo Chicken Slider

Arby's Buffalo Chicken Slider features a crispy-fried chicken tender dipped in spicy Buffalo sauce and topped with Parmesan Peppercorn Ranch.

I bought one for $1.29.

The chicken tender sported a thick shell of batter that managed to stay crispy despite being covered in Buffalo sauce. It's too narrow for the bun, though, and left about a third of the bun's surface without chicken. Your best bet might be to tear the tender in half and place the halves side-by-side for maximum bun coverage.

The chicken itself was moist but not juicy, with a slightly overcooked texture. The bun was soft and squishy but resilient and cradled the chicken well.

The Buffalo sauce was well-balanced with the expected spicy and tangy notes met by the salty bite and herb-y creaminess of the Parmesan Peppercorn Ranch.

Overall, Arby's Buffalo Chicken Slider was still really tasty with a nice crunch despite the spotty chicken coverage. I wonder if the batter would still be crispy, if they shredded the chicken to ensure enough for every bite.
