Review: Wendy's - Fresh Mozzarella Chicken Sandwich

Wendy's Fresh Mozzarella Chicken Sandwich features fresh mozzarella cheese, balsamic diced tomatoes, fresh spring mix, creamy basil pesto, and a grilled chicken filet on a toasted garlic brioche bun.

I paid $5.49 for one.

The mozzarella offered a soft, slightly chewy texture due to the higher moisture content versus regular mozzarella along with a milky flavor. They managed to place a nice, even layer of it across the width of the sandwich.

The most notable and upfront taste of the sandwich was actually the basil pesto which delivered a strong and definite note of basil to go with the creamy tang of its mayo base.

The tomato were fresh rather than soggy and sported a slightly-sweet balsamic glaze that worked well with the pesto. Sliced might have been a better way to do though as the diced tomatoes tended to fall out with the slightest shift of the sandwich. The greens were fairly fresh and somehow managed to stay put this time around (usually I'm losing pieces of them while eating as well).

My particular grilled chicken filet was super thick and pretty moist with a nice, even coverage width-wise as well.

If the bun was garlicky, it was only mildly so in that if I didn't know the sandwich came with a garlic brioche bun I wouldn't have guessed it. It was nicely toasted though.

When it comes down to it, Wendy's Fresh Mozzarella Chicken Sandwich was well-executed and managed to hit the classic flaovrs of a caprese sandwich, especially with a surprisingly distinct (and enjoyable) hit of basil.
