Review: Jack in the Box - H'angry Chicken Hash

Jack in the Box's H'angry Chicken Hash features chicken nuggets, Frank’s Red Hot Buffalo Sauce, Ranch, and white cheese sauce over hash browns.

An order cost me $3.

Since they were calling it a hash, I figured that there would be torn pieces of hash brown patties or maybe tater tots but they just put two whole hash brown patties as the base of the dish.

There were five chicken nuggets in all. Whether it was the sauces or the holding time since frying, they didn't offer much crispiness on this occasion. They contributed a plump meatiness but little flavor.

The Buffalo sauce was curiously not spicy and bordering on mild. There was the sporadic blip of heat and that's it. I seem to remember Frank's Red Hot being spicier. What did come across was a lot of Buffalo tanginess which the Ranch did little to counteract given that Ranch is generally tangy as well. The white cheese sauce managed to provide some cover with a general creaminess.

The hash browns were crispy and sufficiently flavorful but didn't gel well with the chicken and Buffalo profile.

Overall, Jack in the Box's H'angry Chicken Hash didn't have much to recommend it and I couldn't help feeling that I would have enjoyed it more in its separated components.
