Review: Wendy's - Honey Butter Chicken Biscuit

Wendy's Honey Butter Chicken Biscuit is part of their ongoing breakfast test and consists of a crispy fried whole breast chicken fillet topped with real honey butter sandwiched inside a Southern-style buttermilk biscuit.

One sandwich set me back $2.69.

The Honey Butter Chicken Biscuit finds itself in the same company as McDonald's Southern Style Chicken Biscuit and Chick-fil-A's Chicken Biscuit. What sets it apart is the addition of honey. It's a welcome addition for those who like a little sweet with their savory and goes well with the well-buttered biscuit and chicken.

The chicken has a fairly thin, crispy breading that's lightly seasoned. Somehow, the breading manages to be different than both Wendy's Chicken Nuggets and their Home-style Chicken Fillet. It's thinner than the home-style and not as bready as the nuggets.

The biscuit has a very soft, dense, spongy texture that's different than either McDonald's or Chick-fil-A, but still good in its own way. I like the texture which almost melts in your mouth and there's a nice buttery flavor to it beyond the honey butter. However, that softness carries all the way to the crust where it has a barely-there crispness.

Overall, the Honey Butter Chicken Biscuit is good stuff. As a fan of biscuits with honey and butter, the addition of chicken works here and makes for some morning yum.

  1. Looks delcious!!! Wendy's employees greet you by your name yet??

  2. And what's wrong with the biscuit style from the north-eastern section of the mid-Atlantic area?

    Or is this yet ANOTHER marketing term intended to stimulate folks to buy a Wendy's item?

  3. yum. why don't popeye's or kfc or church's offer something like this? it would be bomb.COM

  4. It wasn't too salty for you? I'd imagine it to be salty with fried chicken and a biscuit combined.

  5. It's the honey. It cuts into the 1400mg of salt.
