Review: McDonald's - Classic Chicken Sandwich

McDonald's Classic Chicken Sandwich is part of their new $1 $2 $3 Dollar Menu and features a buttermilk crispy chicken filet, Signature Sauce, and pickles on a toasted regular hamburger bun.

I picked one up for $3.

If you like Chick-fil-A's original Chicken Sandwich, this is basically McDonald's closest take on it (since they discontinued the Southern Style Chicken Sandwich a while back). Where it really differs is with the inclusion of Signature Sauce, which contributes a creamy and savory base splashed with hints of tomato and black pepper.

The chicken was fairly juicy with a flavorfully seasoned crust. There was a good meat-to-bun ratio and I wasn't left with any meatless bites. The crust was more crumbly and crispy rather than thick and crunchy, which could be good or bad depending on your preference. It works well enough for me. The light, airy quality of the crust seemed to do a good job of staying crispy without being too oily.

Even though I was eating in, my bun was somehow squashed flat. The result was that the bun wasn't as squishy and cloud-like as it typically is.

The pickles add a moderately sour bite and watery crunch.

Overall, McDonald's Classic Chicken Sandwich kept it simple but good and showcased the buttermilk crispy chicken well. I actually prefer it over the more expensive Buttermilk Crispy Chicken Sandwich.
