News: Sonic - New Premium Chicken Sandwiches

Sonic introduces two new Premium Chicken Sandwiches this month: the limited-time Asiago Caesar Chicken Sandwich and the re-tinkered Classic Chicken Sandwich.

The Asiago Caesar Chicken Sandwich is only available for a limited time and features your choice of a crispy or grilled chicken breast filet, tomatoes, a romaine lettuce blend, Sonic's signature Caesar sauce (a garlic aioli variant), and a slice of Asiago cheese served on a toasted, whole grain ciabatta bun.

The Classic Chicken Sandwich replaces the previous version and features either a crispy or grilled chicken breast filet, tomatoes, a romaine lettuce blend, and light mayo on a toasted, whole grain ciabatta bun. Basically, they replaced the bun and added some romaine lettuce to the mix.

Sonic has a buy-one-get-one coupon available on their Facebook page for the new sandwiches. It expires 11/10/12.

If you want to try making the Caesar sauce yourself, Sonic has released the recipe by Chef Clas Petersson, their VP of research & development:

CREAMY AIOLI BY CHEF CLAS 
2 Egg Yolks
1 Tbsp Canned Anchovies, minced
1 Clove Garlic, minced
1 Tbsp & 2 Tsp Dijon Mustard
Juice of 1 Lemon
1 Tbsp White Vinegar
1 ¼ Cup Canola Oil 
In medium mixing bowl, blend on medium high, egg yolks, anchovies, garlic, Dijon, lemon juice & white vinegar until thoroughly mixed. With mixer on high, slowly drizzle in canola oil & blend until thick & creamy. If aioli breaks or becomes too oily looking, add 1 Tbsp of cold water to bring together. Salt to taste.

  1. This sandwich is garbage. Funny thing about the commercial, it makes me think if he has had his mind blown that many times than his criteria is quite low!!
